Each year, I look forward to honoring my Mom on
Mother's Day, and I try to find different ways to
recognize and appreciate her.
Rather than send her "stuff", my Mom prefers us (her kids)
to give to charities on her behalf.
Over the years, finding meaningful causes
has become a personal and rewarding quest.
In fact, it has become my favorite gift to give.
Christine Mason Miller gave me the idea for this year's gift
by sharing on her site the incredible story of Suraya Pakzad,
founder and director of Voice of Women (VOW) in Afghanistan.
I made my gift in honor of my Mom,
and I invite you to learn more about Suraya
and consider giving in honor of your Mom.
Wishing all Moms a lovely Mother's Day filled with
joy and happiness.
