(Moms, feel free to share this post with the people in your life)
Let me let you in on a little secret-
Moms would rather you stick up for the underdog than be popular.
Moms would rather you be kind to others than be wealthy.
Moms would rather have finger painted art made by pudgy hands than a museum-worthy work of art.
Moms would rather have a love note written on the back of a gum wrapper than read it in light on a marquee.
Moms would rather you buy a gift that helps another mother than one that makes a store more money.
This Mother’s Day, make the mom in your life proud.
Give her a trendy, cute gift that empowers mothers in other countries to feed her family.
Give her the opportunity to respond (when someone tells her how fabulous her fair trade item is) “My family gave me this thoughtful gift. Together, we are changing the world.”
Mom will really like that.
