With Mother’s Day just around the corner it’s a time of year we think about our children and appreciate the gift that motherhood is. While Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate us as mothers, it’s always for me a time I really stop to cherish the moments and remember how blessed I am. Not everyone is as lucky. This Mother’s Day while we are getting pampered, other Mother’s around the world will be worried about how they are going to feed their children. It’s a stark contrast in reality.
World Vision is a wonderful organization for supporting kids around the world with programs like their sponsoring a child to feed them. I really like that they give you the opportunity to select a child by age and gender. While this may not matter to some adults, it’s a great way for kids to feel connected to the child the family is sponsoring. If they are the same age and gender they will seem more relatable to them, even though their lives are completely different. They can also send the child pictures and letters.
I know my children take for granted that they have food on their plate every time. Actually my husband and I do too! We tend to forget that a world away people are starving and would give anything for the food we waste. Sponsoring a child is a great opportunity to not only give back and potentially save a life; it also teaches kids some harsh realities of the world and to think of others instead of just themselves.
Other ways to support World Vision involve buying some of their wonderful gifts available in their catalogue in which the profits are used to help children in need as well. One beautiful example is this handmade baby bib.
I love the design, especially since elephants are my absolute favorite! It’s also reversible so looks cute either way.
You can enter to win this bib below. It’s beautifully made as all of their products are.
World hunger is a problem we don’t like to think about but it’s a good reminder for us as well as our children, especially with Mother’s Day approaching and our hearts being extra soft towards the beauty of motherhood!
