Honor Mom, Give Gifts That Make a Difference
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (April 25, 2013) – This Mother’s Day, make Mom proud by giving her a gift that lifts a family out of poverty in her honor. In developing countries, mothers often are the sole providers for their families and earn less than $2 a day. Share with Mom the joy of giving a poor mother the opportunity to quell the hunger pangs of her precious child by providing food for 12 months through Food For The Poor’s gift catalog.
For $43.80, Food For The Poor can feed a child for a year. Imagine the immense burden you will lift from the shoulders of mothers who, when food is scarce, sacrifice their own meager portions so that their children will survive.
Food For The Poor’s gift catalog epitomizes the spirit of giving and offers a wide variety of gifts – from a goat for $90, or a solar-powered handheld light kit for $125, to providing a community with a lifesaving water pump for $205.
“Just as a mother’s selfless love for her child multiplies over the years, so too the gift of farm animals multiplies, equipping hardworking families with food, income, and a real sense of hope,” said Angel Aloma, Executive Director of Food For The Poor.
This year, Food For The Poor also encourages you to share your mother’s favorite saying or best advice online at www.FoodForThePoor.org/mom from April 26-May 9. Three winners will be chosen at random on May 10 and a dozen free roses will be delivered to each of their mothers on Mother’s Day, May 12. Be sure to “like” Food For The Poor’s Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/FoodForThePoor.
