One of our junior staff writers had an awesome idea for Mother’s Day.
Check out her cool suggestions!
On May 13, 2012, families all across America will be celebrating Mother’s Day. This year, I’ve already come up with a list of D.I. Y., or Do It Yourself, items to create for my mom in addition to a few store-bought items that are both Earth-friendly and decadent. But I’ve come up with one more pretty cool idea for the perfect Mother’s Day gift!
Karma! It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
You’re probably wondering, How in the world is she going to give Karma to her mother as a gift? You can’t even touch Karma!
The answer to your question is all in the details, my friend.
I am going to donate twenty-five dollars to charity on my mother’s behalf!
If your mom is anything like my mom, she’s super rad and never asks for anything except for your undivided attention when she’s talking to you on the phone and for you to succeed in life. I figure the best way to give back to her is by doing something meaningful in her name. Not only will it make her feel good but she will be a part of the larger global community through her child’s effort. Win-Win!
So keep your credit score intact and post-pone that outrageous week-long trip to Europe for you and mom until next year! Here are four charities of note for Mother’s Day 2012 that I encourage you to donate to on the behalf of your mom this go ‘round!
Four Charities of Note for Mother’s Day 2012
Women For Women – I have been donating to Women for Women for about two years now because they support those that are ambitious enough to face adversity head on in their homelands. On the website, there is an option for you to donate on your mother’s behalf. In return, she will receive a beautifully rendered e-card in her email inbox for Mother’s Day.
Kids In Need Foundation – Even Whitney Houston knew that the children are our future! This particular charity is a part of the Bing.com Reward Program, and I have already been able to raise a $1 for the organization based on my heavy use of the search engine. It makes me very happy to be able to support our nation’s youth and their educational advancement through school supplies.
Charity Water – We all need water to live. This should go without saying. Well, there are many people in developing countries that cannot afford the luxury of clean water and have little to no resources to help get their drinking water clean. By donating to Charity Water, you can put an end to this and you will also be able to download a card image and print it out to send your mom!
The Humane Society – All creatures, big and small deserve humane treatment. The Humane Society is a perfect donation-based gift for your mom, who finds those adorable kitteh memes irresistible.
Make your Mother’s Day gift memorable this year by donating to one of these four charities of note for Mother’s Day 2012, or find a cause that resonates with your mother’s unique personality. No matter what the charity, you will make momma proud!
