Another Mother’s Day, another batch of awful Mother’s Day cards! How on earth can we show the mother-figures in our lives how much we appreciate them with these kind of lame offerings? With such patronising inscriptions, these sentiments are bound to fall as flat as the cardboard they’re printed on.
If you’d rather not remind your lovely Mum that women tend to take on the bulk of domestic duties on this, her special day, then why not consider a different approach? In fact, you can use your mother’s day gift to show love to mothers across the globe! For just £15, Maternity Worldwide will send a Safe Birth Certificate to your Mum – promising to help save the lives of women and babies in developing countries.
Every minute of every day, a woman dies from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth. Ninety-nine percent of these deaths occur in developing countries, These deaths could be avoided if adequate resources and healthcare were available.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone!By: Sarah Barnes, 03.04.2011 | Comments (1)
