This Mother’s Day, Treat Yourself or a Mom You Love

By Jenny Noonan

April 22, 2016

Once again, our partners have got what you need to give the perfect gift for Mother’s Day! These gifts not only provide for the special mothers in your life (or something for yourself!), they also support programs to improve the lives of mothers who most need help, all around the world. Be sure to visit our partners’ sites to see all their great gift ideas!


Exclusive Bracelet + Necklace (ONE)

ONE has partnered with Raven + Lily, a socially conscious fashion brand, to make these exclusive bracelets and necklaces in their partner workshop in northern Ethiopia. Raven + Lily helps employ over 1,500 marginalized women in 9 countries with fair trade wages. These particular pieces stand as an important symbol for peace and hope, as the metal beads were melted down from bullet casings of former war conflicts. Read more about this process, and support the work of ONE.


Coasters, bookmarks, and more (mothers2mothers)

Celebrate the #WonderWomen in your life with mothers2mothers (m2m). Donations at various levels are paired with gifts: the more you’re able to donate, the more gifts will be received. With each donation, one of your #WonderWomen receives a Mother’s Day card to let them know about the inspiring gift of health and hope you’re both giving to mothers in sub-Saharan Africa. Order by May 2 for guaranteed arrival of your physical card by Mother’s Day, or enjoy an e-card.


The Orange Rose Collection (Every Mother Counts)

Orange is the color of Every Mother Counts, and the rose symbolizes life. This year Every Mother Counts introduces the Orange Rose as a universal symbol for safer motherhood. Choose a custom cookie set from Dear Liza’s, a candle from Ash + Ames, a set of Prank Candles from the website if the same name, a tote bag from TOMS, or even a bouquet of orange roses from Posy Box. Proceeds from the Orange Rose Collection will support EMC’s continued efforts to link women around the world to the critical care they need.


Bloom + Grace (Shot@Life)

 

This statement necklace provides 12 children with lifesaving vaccinations through our partnership with Shot@Life and supports artisans in Thailand. Buy a pearl necklace, a trendy rope necklace, or a brass bracelet to help support healthy families with Bloom + Grace and Shot@Life.


Gifts of Joy (Save the Children)

Save the Children invests in childhood every day, in times of crisis and for the future. From baby blankets and newborn care packages, to providing education for a girl or helping stock a library, gifts from Save the Children are gifts of joy. Choose a personalized card option with each gift.


Tripled Donation (Nothing But Nets)

With World Malaria Day (April 25) being so close to Mother’s Day, Nothing But Nets is tripling donation efforts! Sending three times the nets means more lives are saved. You can include an e-card for your Mother’s Day gift, and remember, donations to Nothing But Nets are tax-deductible. With this gift you can help #DefeatMalaria.

If you are in Baltimore during the month of May, visit the Fells Point waterfront where shopping at local businesses will help support our partner Jhpiego’s global work to keep moms and babies alive and thriving. Invite your mom to lunch at a local pub or buy her Mother’s Day present at a funky boutique and a portion of what you spend will be contributed to the health of women and families around the world.

From all of us at Global Moms Challenge, we thank you for your support and wish you and all the #WonderWomen in your life a very Happy Mother’s Day.
