Do It

Honor your mother this Mother's Day with a symbolic donation in her name.

Kirsten Browning

May 11, 2014

Day 9: Did you forget to send a card this year? Are you worried flowers would be too cliché? Send a Mother's Day e-card (or a real one!) with a gift that will last her a lifetime. For Mother's Day this year, I mailed a card through Women for Women International that told my mother I'd just purchased six baby chicks in her name that will go to a woman survivor of war. In Nigeria, for instance, raising poultry provides hundreds of women with a lifeline to a steady income, and now one woman will be able to raise six chickens, in my mother's honor! Although it's a bit late to send a physical card to your mother by Mother's Day, you can still send an e-card right now with a similar wonderful and symbolic gift, which you can choose: besides baby chicks, you could also purchase a goat, vegetable seeds, a sewing machine, gardening tools, and much, much more. Give your mother a gift this year that she'll remember, forever!
