Make Mother’s Day More Meaningful with a Gift That Changes Lives

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (April 11, 2018) Try going a single day without clean water. What most people can easily obtain with the twist of a tap is considered a precious gift by the poorest of the poor.

For Mother's Day, what if instead of flowers or jewelry, you provided lifesaving water to quench a child's thirst.

A water pump for $285 is just one of many gifts in Food For The Poor's Spring Gift Catalog that can honor your mother and share one's blessings by feeding families, educating children, turning shacks into homes and providing clean water, fruit trees or school supplies that will change lives and renew your spirit.

For just $25, you can give baby chicks that will provide families with a sustainable source of protein from eggs, but also extra income from selling those eggs.

All gifts in the charity's catalog are designed to improve the lives of poverty-stricken children and families who struggle to survive in developing countries.

Even for students, the catalog offers meaningful ideas for special moms, while remaining within budget. For $20, you can purchase a set of 10 handcrafted Banana Bark Cards that are an elegant way to send a message and show you care. The cards are made by talented artisans in Haiti, giving them a chance to earn income to provide for their families.

For $90, you can give a goat in your mother's honor for a family in need. Your gift will grow and multiply to supply the family – and someday possibly the community – with a nutritious source of protein.

Because Food For The Poor acquires food in large quantities, you can feed a starving family of four for just $14.60 a month, or a hungry child for a whole year for $43.80.

"Every day, children are forced to go hungry, thousands suffer from severe malnourishment, and their mothers are helpless to save them," said Food For The Poor Executive Director Angel Aloma. "Mothers give and give and then give some more. Just as a mother's selfless love for her child grows over the years, so too the gift of farm animals multiplies, providing hardworking families with food, income, and a real sense of hope."

Food For The Poor also remains committed to moving destitute families out of unsafe living conditions and into new, permanent homes. A gift of $7,200 will build a safe, sturdy home with sanitation and a clean water source to give children a chance for better futures.
