This Mother’s Day, join Macy’s in their “Thank a Mom Movement.” Macy’s will donate $5 (up to a total of $400,000) to a charity in your mom’s honor.
Macy’s has partnered with five amazing charities. All you have to do is send a (free) e-card to the amazing mom in your life and Macy’s will donate $5 to the charity of their choice!
Visit the “Thank a Mom Movement” on Facebook to make a difference this Mother’s Day.
The five charities are:
- Futures Without Violence formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund
- The Make-A-Wish Foundation
- National Park Foundation
- Reading Is Fundamental
- American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Movement
In exchange for posting about the “Thank A Mom Movement,” Macy’s offered to send flowers to a special mother in my life. I didn’t need any incentive to post about such a great charitable campaign, but I was thrilled with the opportunity to send flowers to someone special.
With her permission, I’m choosing to send flowers to Kristine Brite McCormick from Cora’s Story. Kristine’s daughter Cora died suddenly and unexpectedly in her mother’s arms of an undetected congenital heart defect (CHD) while breastfeeding. Since then, Kristine has been an extremely effective advocate in the CHD community. She has worked tirelessly to raise awareness about the importance of pulse oximetry testing– even getting a bill named on behalf of Cora that would mandate pulse oximetry testing passed by the Indiana State Senate (and hopefully soon by the Indiana State House). Her current goal is to raise $30,000 for Operation Healing Hearts by Cora’s second birthday. We hope our readers can help make Kristine’s dream a reality by donating or lending their support!
