Cards, flowers, perfume—she’s seen it all. This Mother’s Day, consider celebrating in an unexpected way. Consider giving a gift to mothers everywhere. Nothing fancy is required. In some cases, just being aware of their existence is enough. This holiday is about supporting and recognizing the importance of moms everywhere.
So break out of the old Mother’s Day routine (except for brunch—moms love brunch!) and give to mom by giving to others in honor of her. Here are a few easy ways to do just that:
Every Mother Counts
Raise awareness about the hundreds of thousands of women who die each year from complications during pregnancy or childbirth.
International Rescue Committee
Give the gift of maternal healthcare, safe childbirth or even warm blankets to mothers (and babies!) around the world.
Support a mom in need by helping her provide for her family.
