Ways to Give Back and Celebrate this Mother’s Day with Cause We Care
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 are in difficult circumstances. The Vancouver-based, grassroots charity has made it their mission to invest in low-income single mothers and their families, with a goal to help them achieve financial independence and lead the way to brighter futures.
“In BC, the child poverty rate for children in lone-parent families is nearly six times higher than the rate for their counterparts in couple families,” says Shannon Newman-Bennet, Cause We Care Foundation’s Executive Director. “We are very grateful to all our supporters and retail partners for joining us in raising funds to invest in single mothers this Mother’s Day. We know that when access to support and resources is coupled with the resilience, strength and determination of these mothers, families can thrive and achieve security for themselves and their children.”
Mother’s Day e-cards are available online and we encourage donations in the name of someone special to celebrate her and all mothers this Mother’s Day.
