BID STARTING AT $50. Jenny Tamas is the lovely mother, wife, and kick-ass woman behind the inspiring images of the @gypsynspice account we all know and love.

Jenny's bathtub photographs remind us that pregnant women/women in general need to take care of themselves without guilt; that indulging in the small pleasures of baths is sometimes nothing short of necessary for our mental and physical health; and that if, to quote Jenny, "if I don't take the time to honor myself, my body, then who will?" Let COHI help provide quality reproductive, maternal, and newborn care in time of crisis (like what's happening in Aleppo!) and donate.
