This year, look beyond the normal Mother’s Day gift-giving and seek out a gift that is meaningful to women who aren’t as fortunate as the women in your life.
Check out www.Mothersdaymovement.org. Instead of giving a whole bouquet of flowers to your mom why not give her a half a bouquet and take the rest and donate it in your mother, grandmother or friends honor. It is a great way for your donations to find their way directly to those women who need it most.
Mothers’ Day Movement was founded by a small group of women inspired by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s book, Half the Sky, which chronicles the oppression of women and girls in the developing world. The MDM 2012 Campaign benefits Saving Mothers, a charity dedicated to reducing maternal mortality in the developing world where over 350,000 women die in the process of becoming mothers each year.
I support this cause, and I encourage my friends and family to do the same!
