As I head out to brunch to celebrate Mothers Day with three of my four children I can’t help but think of all of the mothers and women across the world who aren’t as fortunate to live in a place like Canada. Where equality between women and men, boys and girls are a given. Where health care and a good education is free and readily available for both my daughters and my sons.
I am short on time and time is of the essence so I am copying and pasting words from another incredible woman – Marianne Elliott (@zenpeacekeeper). Please take the time to read and to donate. Please take the time to honour and help other mothers and woman across the world!
Much love and Gratitude,
It’s already Mothers Day here in New Zealand and Australia. My mum lives too far away for anything but a phone call, but today I was able celebrate mothers day by babysitting for a friend so she could get some mama-time-out to play with her Sunday afternoon soccer team.
What I’d also LOVE would be to celebrate Mothers Day by reaching our goals for the To Mama With Love fundraiser.
We found out yesterday afternoon that Hopeful World Publishing has decided to make a $5,000 matching gift IF To Mama With Love manages to raise $20,000 by Mother’s Day – tomorrow, May 8 – at 11:59p EST.
And if we raise $5000 just for Suraya by Mothers Day ( tomorrow at 11.59p EST) then she will also get to share a quarter of the total funds raised by To Mama With Love. That could double what we have to give Suraya and make a HUGE difference to the shelters.
So I’m writing once more to ask you to invest your love at www.ToMamaWithLove.org
(that special link should mean that your donation goes to Suraya) or, if you prefer to keep things simple you can contribute via this ChipIn
and I’ll add all those funds to Suraya’s total myself.
If you’ve already donated, thank you, I’m so grateful.
We’ve so far raised $1700 for Suraya and more than $15,000 althogether through To Mama With Love.
My heart is set on raising $5000 for Suraya by the end of tomorrow. That will help ensure that the total passes $20,000 and we get the matching $5000 grant AND it will make sure that Suraya gets to share in the overall funds raised on the To Mama With Love site. So we need to raise another $3300 in just over 24 hours. I know we can do it.
Thanks so much,
PS: It’s also my birthday this weekend. If you were thinking it would be nice to give me something for my birthday this would be it: a donation in Suraya’s name
