Three Reasons to Give your Mother a Nuclear Weapon-Free World this Year

It’s almost here – that time of year when we struggle to find a gift for the mother who either already seems to have everything, insists she doesn’t want anything, or is just so picky that nothing seems good enough to give her. This year, Ploughshares Fund is offering something special and meaningful for Mom, and it’s something you can’t find in a department store. Give Mom the gift of a nuclear-weapon free world. Still need convincing? Here are a few reasons why a donation to Ploughshares Fund makes an excellent present to the mother in your life.

May 13th is only a few weeks away. Do you really have any ideas of what to get Mom yet? If you’re anything like me, you’ll rush to the mall on May 12th frantically searching through shelves and racks and select something generic, like earrings or some nice lotion, that Mom seems happy to receive but that you aren’t really that excited about giving her. Wouldn’t it be nice to give her something she will remember next year, and maybe even for years to come? A donation to Ploughshares Fund isn’t just another gift. It’s a thoughtful gesture that shows how much you really care about the world that you, Mom, and generations to come call home.

Stroll into any Hallmark store during the month of May and you’ll be overwhelmed with Mother’s Day memorabilia – mugs, boxes of chocolate, picture frames, etc. But does Mom really need any more stuff? Sure, a mug that reads ‘I Love Mom’ is sweet, but wouldn’t you feel better just telling her you love her and using your money to promote peace on earth? That’s one gift that you can rest assured won’t sit in a kitchen cabinet collecting dust.

Mom has taught us many important lessons over the years. She taught us the importance of sharing, being kind, and making the world a better place. What better way to show her what she’s given you than with a gift of peace? Making a donation to Ploughshares Fund is the perfect way to show mom that her years of advice and words of wisdom haven’t fallen on deaf ears. If Mom is the one who taught you to care about making the world a better place, say thanks by making a commitment to do just that. A donation to Ploughshares Fund is a step toward a nuclear-weapon free world.

So if you want to save yourself some grief this year and give Mom something really unique, donate to Ploughshares Fund’s Mother’s Day for Peace Campaign. We’ll send her an e-card letting her know about the important gift you’ve given in her honor. Show Mom how much you care and make the world a better place this year.
