8 Ways to Help Moms for Mother's Day

My friend Julie Miner is doing an amazing thing for Mother’s Day. She’s working with sponsors to do a fundraiser for Shelter House, an organization in our area that helps homeless women and women leaving domestic abuse.

I flat out love this idea. Turning Mother’s Day into an opportunity to help other mothers out rings so true to me. Yeah, I love the crafts that come home from preschool and adorn my wall for years after hut I don’t need fancy gifts to celebrate motherhood. I would much rather have my husband and kids make donation in my name to an organization that helps other moms. And in doing so, we can teach my kids about giving back to our communities.
