Something nice to do for your mother, and other mothers too

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Yaktivism

SOS Children’s Villages is an international charity that offers safe and loving homes to more than 75,000 orphaned and abandoned children in 134 countries.

This Mother’s Day, SOS has launched an eCard campaign where, for every FREE eCard someone sends to a mother, a $10 donation will be made on their behalf to help empower vulnerable mothers around the world.

These eCards are not only a meaningful, non-material gift moms will appreciate, but kiddos will also be prompted (with adult help, or maybe big brother or sister?) to answer some fun questions about their mom. The card designs are pretty cute too:

The goal is $50,000 (that’s 5,000 cards sent)! Totally doable. Would you consider sending a card today? Click here! It’s easy. After you send one, maybe you can you help spread the word and let someone else know about this initiative too. Thank you!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (17) and Sarah (15). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.

If you'd like to contact me, please use this form. If you're so inclined, you can read more about me here. Thank you for visiting!
