Today, the Catalogue for Philanthropy wants to share a very important public service announcement: Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away! Have you found the perfect gift for mom yet?
You’ve done the usual Mother’s Day “go-to” gifts: flowers, spa days, jewelry, handmade cards, breakfast in bed…all very nice and thoughtful, but what about trying something new this year?
What if you gave mom what she really wants for Mother’s Day: time with you!
Consider volunteering with your mom over the weekend, or attending an event together through one of our Catalogue charities. On Saturday, May 10th from 7:30pm – 10:30 pm, The Dwelling Place is hosting its 22nd Annual Carnival of Chocolates. The Carnival of Chocolates features all-you-can eat chocolate delicacies from local bakeries, restaurants, and caterers, savory hors d’oeuvres, a live & silent auction and great raffle items. What mom wouldn’t love that? Click here for tickets and more event information.
For those who can’t celebrate Mother’s Day in person, consider giving the gift of philanthropy. Did you know that, on average, consumers spend $162 on this holiday? Support the hard work of women everywhere by making a donation to Catalogue charities that provide resources to moms and families across Greater Washington, such as Borromeo Housing (VA), Pueblo a Pueblo (MD), and The Christ Child Society (DC). You can make a donation to these charities in your mother’s name, or even purchase a Catalogue gift card and let her decide which charities she would like to support.
The best part about the gift of philanthropy on Mother’s Day? It pairs well with breakfast in bed AND flowers (hint hint).
