International Rescue Committee for mothers in crisisThis Mother’s Day, you can honor thy mother (or a mother you love) by helping mothers in crisis. And I don’t mean “oh no, the babysitter canceled at the last minute.” More like women affected by humanitarian emergencies around the world.

The wonderful International Rescue Committee has put together special “baskets” for mothers, but instead of chocolates or bubble bath, the gifts could include a carseat for an uprooted family, postpartum care
for a mother with a life-threatening complication, or blankets to keep
babies warm.

As for you, you get a beautiful card to pass along to the woman you’re honoring with this amazing gift. I can’t think of a better way to tell a mother you love that she inspires you to love others.  -Mir
