We are Mothers helping Mothers

Mothers' Day Movement (MDM) was founded by a small group of women who believed in making a difference for women around the globe. We were inspired by Half the Sky, a book by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, which chronicles the oppression of women and girls in the developing world. We know that, with support, women become empowered and their lives, the lives of their children and of their communities are forever changed.

What is a movement? A movement is a wave. It picks up momentum and grows to effect substantial change. When we learned about the staggering $18 billion spent annually in the United States on Mother's Day—things like flowers and cards—we thought there should be a movement. Let’s move the funds to mothers who need it around the globe. Let's start a Mothers' Day Movement

 
 

HOW IT WORKS

We research small to mid-sized 501c-3 charities in the fields of education, health care and other areas helping women and their families throughout the developing world. The charities are chosen based on a set of criteria including their reach and success in effecting positive change for women around the world.

We hope to shift the priorities of giving for Mother’s Day. Just a portion of your Mother's Day budget will make an enormous impact for women across the globe. Make a donation in honor of your Mother, your friend, your sister or any special woman in your life. Help make the world a better place. Mom would be proud.

What we've done

Since 2011, MDM donors have raised more than $300,000 to help women and children. Our beneficiaries have dramatically improved the lives of women and their families in the fields of women's health, education, infant and maternal mortality and clean water. But our work is not done yet...

You can help

We invite you to make a donation in honor of your mother, sister, colleague or friend to our 2015 beneficiary, Free the Slaves. FTS is working to combat the damage caused by the $150 billion slave trade. The money raised this Mother's Day will go to provide critical services to slavery survivors in India including rehabilitation, literacy and vocational skills.

FREE THE SLAVES


"It's time to move the apostrophe so that it becomes not just Mother's Day honoring a single mother but Mothers' Day, an occasion to try and help Mothers around the globe as well."
