Yesterday was Mother’s Day in the United States, a time to honor moms for their hard work, selfless acts, unconditional love, and for keeping us safe, clothed, and fed.
While being a mother may look different across the world, there is no doubt that in many ways it feels the same. We believe every mom is trying her hardest and that every mom wants the best for her children - for them to be safe, happy, and free to make their own path in life - that is a universal wish of a Mother.
Every mom wants to give her children a better life - one with access to health care, education, clean drinking water, safe places to live and play, and a promising future of hope and happiness.
That’s why Buy The Change partners with mothers in some of the most impoverished areas of the world. We know the importance of lifting women up to break the cycle of poverty.
Your purchases make sure we can continue to empower women to take control of their own lives and show the next generation of girls a better way - to help them start their own businesses, to go to school, to dream bigger, do more, and believe in themselves.
We also believe that as women, we are connected deep in our souls. As women, we are designed to live in community and support one another in a sisterhood, we truly are all in this together.
Even if you do not have children of your own, you are a mother in the sense of caring for others in the world, all the women of the world and their children. If you are a woman, you are capable of changing the world.
So, to each one of you, happy Mother’s Day, every day.
