May 5, 2011; Source: Huffington Post | Here is your reminder that Sunday is Mother’s Day. Looking for that last minute present? A silk scarf, a safe birthing kit, or a spa basket are gift ideas that can also support her favorite cause. Check out these ideas from Huffington Post to meet that Sunday deadline.
The Animal Rescue Organization suggests a fair trade antique tote bag. Its purchase will fill 28 bowls of food for homeless animals. The International Rescue Committee will give a safe birthing kit to expectant women in crisis zones; they offer other gifts to help poor families. A fair trade Serenity silk scarf, handmade by women in northern India, is a gift idea from Women’s Peace Collection.
And for those who are running out of time to send mom a card, Care International has you covered. E-cards can be personalized and delivered right to the inbox of your special women. An anonymous donor will match all contributions received.
A Women to Women International gift suggestion is a Prosperity Spa Basket to support women entrepreneurs in Haiti, Iraq or Afghanistan. Purchase a bottle of California wine and a tree will be planted in honor of mom, compliments of Tree to Tree.
Spend a little time web-shopping today and show mom you care by giving a gift that gives back.—Nancy Knoche
