It’s our favorite time of the year! Mothers’ Day in the USA is just around the corner — Sunday, May 11! You have time to give a meaningful gift (or just forward this post to your significant other and kids!). Last week, we shared part one of our list of perfect gifts for yourself and all the special mothers in your life. Our partners and friends have made it easy for you to find something to brighten any mom’s day AND help make lives better for moms around the world.
From now through May 30, author and award-winning journalist Jennifer Haupt will donate profits from sales of her new e-book to m2m. Will You Be My Mother? My quest to answer yes, is a touching memoir chronicling Haupt’s journey to love and connect more deeply with her own children, her family, and ultimately the world. For each e-book purchased, $1 will be donated to provide health and hope to mothers and their babies in sub-Saharan Africa. It’s just one of the fabulous options available in m2m’s “Double Your Mommy” campaign, through which all gifts will be matched by a donor up to $15,000. Learn more and order your e-book here.
With UNICEF gifts, the love goes to mom and the gift goes to a child in need. Gifts of food, immunizations, help with maternal health, or directly benefitting schools, your inspired gift will be delivered where it is most needed. Browse the whole catalog, dedicate a card to the mother in your life, and save lives. Go here for specific Mothers’ Day gift options.
A goat? Yes, a goat; a gift that gives hope to impoverished families by providing protein-rich food and dairy, and the ability to generate income. This gift is a best-seller for Save the Children, but there are many other options available. You can also add a customized greeting card to let the mother in your life know about the life-changing gift you’ve given in her name.
ONE and Alex and Ani’s Charity by Design just announced their New Beginnings charm bangle that goes on sale May 7. The expandable bangle depicts a perfectly crafted 8-sided sun, representing the universal law that life’s outcomes are a reflection of your efforts, and that you have limitless opportunity to positively lead and affect others. 20 percent of proceeds from sales of the New Beginnings bangle will be donated to The ONE Campaign and its continuing mission.
Give your mother a beautiful custom-designed, silver-plated set of cultured pearls, the universal symbol of health and purity. With a $175 donation to the Fistula Foundation, The Dignity Necklace and Dignity Earrings are the perfect gift, and you’ll help a woman suffering from obstetric fistula.
