Help Women in Need Through Mothers' Day Flower Project
CHANA, the Counseling, Helpline, & Aid Network for Abused Women, has joined Jewish Women International in honoring the 45,000 women and children who will spend Mother’s Day in battered women’s shelters.
According to a news release from CHANA, "Through the annual Mother’s Day Flower Project, JWI will send bouquets of flowers, as well as beauty products from OPI Products, Inc. to 200 shelters across the United States."
And the organization encourages Pikesville Patch readers to participate and "provide hope for these families on this special day."
"With your support, each and every day, JWI will work to educate communities, empower women and break the cycle of abuse," the release states.
Here is how it works, according to the release:
• Choose an amazing women in your life—mother, sister, wife, daughter—to receive a beautiful ‘Mother’s Day’ card
• Make a meaningful $25 donation to JWI in honor of this special person
• JWI sends a beautiful card to your designated recipient stating that a charitable contribution has been made in their/her honor
• JWI sends bouquets of beautiful flowers to domestic violence shelters
"The project is an opportunity for us to raise awareness about domestic abuse while we deliver compassion and support to women forced to live in domestic violence shelters," it states.
All gifts to JWI are tax-deductible.
