Hi, a reader asked me to share this information and so I am.
She writes: Your readers may be interested in knowing that there is an easy (yet thoughtful!) way to celebrate the special women in their lives this Mother’s Day. The Women’s Lunch Place – an organization that served a record number of women in need in Boston just last month – is sending out beautiful, handwritten Mother’s Day Cards in exchange for a $25 donation that helps support and provide hope for Boston’s most underserved women. (The deadline to purchase a card is May 6.)
The cards feature a bright watercolor painting by an anonymous artist who was served by The Women’s Lunch Place and can be purchased online through the end of April – see the link below for more details. Volunteers from all over Boston donate hours of their time to handwrite personal notes scripted by those who purchase.
Each year, The Women’s Lunch Place hosts a special Mother’s Day celebration where all of the guests are greeted with a fresh flower and escorted to a room where they celebrate with a sumptuous meal, live entertainment and personal gifts. The Mother’s Day Card program gives the Boston community a way to help ensure that The Women’s Lunch Place can continue to provide nourishment and hope for hundreds of poor and homeless women on Mother’s Day and throughout the year, especially during these difficult financial times.
