A glance at top gifts guides for moms suggests chocolates, flowers, jewelry and spa essentials. Throw in a handmade card and you are set for Mothers’ Day, right?
In addition to showering them with gifts from the heart, moms also love it when we do nice things for others. This Mother’s Day, you can select a thoughtful gift from one of several merchants that does double duty. When you shop with partners like AmazonSmile, Shop & Support or greenback, a portion of your purchase will stay local and help fill the plates of kids, families and seniors in need.
When you shop, Amazon gives. Since its inception, more than 14,427 meals have been provided for Central Floridians struggling with hunger thanks to this program. Once you designate Second Harvest Food Bank as your preferred charity on AmazonSmile, 0.5% of your shopping cart purchase will fight hunger in Central Florida. To get started, click this link, then remember to shop smile.amazon.com when you shop for mom.
Shop & Support
When you shop at participating national retailers, a portion of your purchase (think greeting cards, home improvement projects or ordering flower deliveries for Mother’s Day) can help support Second Harvest Food Bank. You can sign up to participate in the Shop & Support program with three simple steps.
