Remembering Moms and Children
Lighting virtual candles in tribute brings healing, raises funds
By: Mary Beth Sammons
Everywhere you look for the weeks leading up to Mother’s Day are gift-lists, advertisements for flowers and presents for Mom, articles about Moms… It’s a lovely holiday, but for those who have lost a mother, and for mothers who have lost a child, Mother’s Day can be a sad and emotional reminder of loss instead of the celebration it is meant to be.
This Mother’s Day and throughout the month of May, Memory-Of.com offers a meaningful way for you to pay tribute to and honor your mother or child and, at the same time, make a difference by helping two charities that make a significant impact on the lives of women and children.
As part of the Mother’s Day of Remembrance campaign, those who want to honor a mother or child who has died can light a virtual candle on the site. Every time a candle is lit for a mother, one dollar will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help raise funds for and awareness of the fight against breast cancer. When a candle is lit on behalf of a son or a daughter, the same amount will be donated to the First Candle Foundation, which generates funds to save babies’ lives.
