Guidance, wisdom, unconditional love… a tissue from her purse, a scolding you’ll eventually thank her for… Mothers are constantly giving to us; but what do we give back? This Mother’s Day, May 11th, give your mom – or all the important women in your life – a gift that expresses how much you value all the mothers of the world.
Hillel International has partnered with Jewish Women International (JWI) to make this holiday special for some of the 45,000 women and children spending Mother’s Day in battered women’s shelters. We can make a difference for these survivors of violence while we celebrate the women we love. JWI’s Mother’s Day Flower Project lets you give a gift that honors everything Mom has given you – and the person you have become because of it.
Through the annual Mother’s Day Flower Project, JWI will send bouquets of flowers, as well as beauty products from OPI Products, Inc., to 200 shelters across the United States.
Here’s how it works:
- You choose an inspiring woman in your life – mother, sister, wife, daughter, friend – and make a $25 donation to JWI in her honor.
- JWI sends a beautiful card, which will arrive by Mother’s Day, to each designated recipient, stating that a charitable contribution has been made in her honor.
- JWI uses proceeds from the sale of these cards to send beautiful bouquets of flowers and baskets of beauty products to domestic violence shelters on Mother’s Day.
- Your donation funds JWI’s work year-round, and a portion also goes back to Hillel International.
You can buy your Mother’s Day Flower Project cards online at www.jwi.org/fp, or fill out and mail the paper form. Be sure to note Hillel International as your partner of choice!
For more information, please contact JWI at 202-857-1300 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All gifts to JWI are tax-deductible.
