Make a difference this Mother’s Day by sylvng

Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday and as usual I don’t have anything planned yet! But part of my procrastination this year is because I’m off the hook for buying a gift. My mom has behaved quite out of character and purchased a handbag for herself 2 weeks ago that she’d like me to pitch in for, instead of buying her something new.

But still, I’d like to do something meaningful for mom, and having signed up to newsletters from a host of nonprofits, all I had to do was look at my inbox for ideas. Unfortunately there are too many ideas to write them all here, but here are some:

  • Treat mom to a nice meal. War Child Canada is running a high tea at the King Eddy. It’s $65, and there will be speakers and an auction, with proceeds going towards War Child’s programs.
  • Give the gift of helping women around the world by choosing from GlobalGiving’s Mother’s Day Menu. For $10 you can give learning materials for an adolescent girl, or for $65, give delivery kits for safe home births in Tibet.
  • Recognize your mom by writing about how great she is! During May, HuffPost Impact will be featuring remarkable stories focused on motherhood. Send your stories to impact@huffingtonpost.com and make the subject line “My Inspiring Story.”
  • Buy something for mom online while having a portion of the purchase go towards charity using BetterTheWorld’s new shopping application. For more details and gift ideas, see their Mother’s Day blog post.

For all the moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day!
