In times of war or disaster, mothers are the first to get their children out of harm’s way. When the crisis subsides, they are the first to begin the task of rebuilding. This Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 12th), the International Rescue Committee is offering a way to support mothers and their families around the world, while honoring the mothers in our own lives.
Each symbolic Rescue Gift represents a program, project or tool that the IRC uses in its critical humanitarian work around the world. Gifts will be used where and when most needed to provide help and hope to people who have been uprooted by conflict or disaster.
There is a Rescue Gift for every mother, at a variety of price points:
· A Safe Delivery Rescue Gift ($24) can ensure critical supplies for the safe birth of a child in a crisis zone.
· A Maternal Health Gift ($52) can provide a mother-to-be with the advice, medical assistance and other support she needs to keep herself — and her baby — healthy.
· A Clean Water Rescue Gift ($100) can rush fresh water to 200 people whose lives have been uprooted by emergencies such as war, famine or drought.
Gift-givers can browse the Rescue Gifts catalog online and dedicate them to the special women in their lives, who will receive beautiful personalized print or e-cards to acknowledge the gift. As an added bonus, shoppers who spend $75 or more at Rescue.org/Gifts will receive a fashionable “Rescue” T-shirt or can have it sent as a gift.
