LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 10, 2012) – When you were young, your mom told you to be anything you wanted to and that you could change the world. What better way to thank your mother for what she’s done for you and show her that you will change the world, helping moms around the globe?
Actress Susan Sarandon is a mother herself, and she agrees. “This Mother’s Day,” she says, “give your mom something that will rock her world and change someone else’s.” A Heifer International animal provides nutrition and marketable products for a family, as a tool to climb out of poverty. That’s a powerful gift.
So for this Mother’s Day, give your mom something unconventional. Most people take their mom out to eat or buy them jewelry and flowers for Mother’s Day, but 54% of moms just want well-behaved kids. With Heifer International, a goat or a rabbit can provide a family with a path to self-sufficiency.
When you give a Heifer International gift in her honor, you can provide a beautiful honor card to your mother (or grandmother, aunt, or other special woman) that explains just how her gift is helping a poor family move from poverty to self-reliance.
Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to be expensive, elaborate, or even come gift-wrapped. With Heifer International gifts, you can honor your mother and make her day special by providing hope to a family currently fighting hunger.
