The Perfect Gift: Spring Gift Catalog Offers Ideas to Honor Mom

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (May 9, 2019)  For moms passionate about giving back to others, there's no better Mother's Day gift than knowing they are making a difference in the life of someone in need.

Food For The Poor's Spring Gift Catalog has many unique gift ideas to honor moms, all designed to improve the lives of poverty-stricken children and families that struggle to survive in developing countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Gifts in the catalog fit every budget, even those of students.

For as little as $10, you can provide a fruit tree that gives families a nutritious and sustainable source of food and additional income. For $20, you can provide a year's worth of school supplies for a child, or for $90, you can give a goat that provides milk to poor families.

In developing countries, poor mothers often raise their children on their own on less than $2 a day. Sometimes, they are forced to scavenge through a trash dump for discarded food to feed their little ones or to find anything recyclable to sell for a meager amount.

A gift from the catalog can provide food, clean water, shelter, medical supplies, or pencils and backpacks to help children succeed in school – all basic necessities that are out of reach for these destitute women and their families.

You can feed a starving family of four for just $24.33 a month, or a hungry child for a whole year for $73.

A gift of $285 will provide a water pump that delivers clean water, so poor mothers and children do not have to walk for miles to get water to meet their family's basic needs.

"Every day, millions of children are forced to go hungry, thousands become ill because they do not have clean drinking water, and many lack access to even basic medical care," said Food For The Poor Executive Director Angel Aloma. "The gift catalog is a way for us all to honor our mothers in a meaningful way while restoring hope to others and, in many cases, saving their lives."
