It’s a little over a week away – yup, Mother’s Day. Aside from the bazillion things our own moms do for us everyday, every now and then we have the privilege of crossing paths with an inspiring Mom On a Mission (ooh, that makes “MOM,” cool).
Recently, a couple of these women have helped me see that there’s nothing more powerful than a passionate MOM, like Donna Jackson, who wanted her mentally disabled son, Ben, to have a sense of purpose and accomplishment, so she started some art classes for Ben and his friends a few years ago. Now, The Gallery Group and Art Studio partners with dozens of regional artists to provide art classes to more than 50 disabled adults, exhibiting and selling artwork from both professional and student artists.
Then there’s NJ foster MOM, Danielle Gletow, who couldn’t stop at just helping a handful of foster children, so she started www.OneSimpleWish.org, to grant wishes for kids in foster care all over the country.
And, can you imagine being a mom facing seemingly insurmountable challenges, like the moms in earthquake devastatedHaiti? Some of them (along with others in their communities) are working to support their families and help their communities recover by creating beautiful handmade crafts and jewelry. If you’d like your Mom’s Day gift to reach out and help them, it’s easy to do and I’ve even got a special promo to share with you. Here’s how:
