For those who don’t want to wait until the last-minute to get something special for their mothers on Mother’s Day, there are a number of Christian charity organizations that have produced gift catalogs with ideas that will not only honor mothers but also improve the lives of poverty-stricken children and families that struggle to survive in developing countries.
Compassion International, for example, is highlighting a number of gifts that specifically impact mothers and children.
“What better way to pass on the legacy of mothers than by helping moms and children in poverty?” the organization asks in introducing its gift catalog online.
World Vision, similarly, is encouraging people to “[h]onor moms with life-saving gifts of love for children.”
Gifts ideas include a Newborn Care Package, which is filled with basic supplies that a new mother would need to care for her child; Literacy Classes for a Mother, which give a mother tools to help break the cycle of poverty and the determination to inspire her children; and a Hope Kit for Women in the USA, which provides the practical essentials for a woman in the U.S. who is rebuilding her life after escaping poverty, violence, abuse, or addiction.
“Your gift will give her hope and encouragement as she works towards a brighter future,” World Vision states.
