GIVE GIFTS THAT GIVE BACK THIS MOTHER’S DAY
This Mother’s Day, Cause We Care Foundation has collaborated with local companies to present meaningful gift options that celebrate motherhood, but that also recognize and support those who are raising their children alone and who may be struggling. The Vancouver-based grassroots charity has made it their mission to invest in marginalized single mothers and their families, with a goal to help them achieve financial independence and lead the way to brighter futures.
“We know that single parents have suffered more than most over the past years,” says Andrea Thomas Hill, Cause We Care Founder and Chair. “The isolation and anxiety brought on by the pandemic left many feeling completely overwhelmed and stretched to their limits. We want to help these families and support them in a variety of ways, as they continue to show resilience, strength and determination. We are very grateful to Blue Ruby, The Cross Decor & Design and Legend’s Haul for joining us in raising funds to invest in single mothers this Mother’s Day.”
Mother’s Day e-cards are available online with a donation and retail opportunities are as follows:
Blue Ruby Jewellery: A long-standing partner of Cause We Care, Blue Ruby has raised over $850,000 over the past nine years to support the Foundation through donating 100% of proceeds from Blue Ruby x Cause We Care collections.
