Turn That Mother’s Day Card into a Gift That Keeps on Giving

This Sunday, more than 150 million Mother’s Day cards will be exchanged in the United States. Most of these cards cost between $4 and $5.

Now imagine what would happen if you donate that $5 to your favorite nonprofit in honor of Mom. We could change the world.

But wait, you may be wondering how $5 can change anything. Five dollars ensures that future generations of girls grow up with reliable health information. Five dollars helps create a community of support and a place to turn for questions. Five dollars gives us the ability to provide tools that enable girls and women to become better health advocates. Five dollars changes everything.

Consider making a gift to Our Bodies Ourselves in honor of all the moms in your life. And if you’re thinking a $5 donation doesn’t make a difference, think again. If every one of our blog readers and Facebook supporters made a $5 donation in honor of their mom or loved one this Mother’s Day, we’d raise more than $75,000. That’s right — $75,000.

We all know the value of accurate health information, and I know that you care deeply about women’s health issues. So this Mother’s Day, when you’re contemplating which card to buy, honor your mom with a gift to Our Bodies Ourselves.

With every $5 donation, we’re on our way to changing the world.

    I wrote a song, “Mother’s Love” and sent it to my mom for Mother’s Day…I’m happy to say she was overcome with emotion. Though I only intended to share the song with her, she has now encouraged me to share it through iTunes.

    

Please consider it for a gift to for anyone who cherishes a mom, knows a mom or is a mom, this Mother’s Day, May 9th!
