This Mother's Day, Moments with Mother's is proud to partner with Home Start to bring extra thanks & encouragements to Mom's who need it most.
Home Start is a voluntary organization in which volunteers offer regular support, friendship and practical help to families with young children, in their own homes, helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown. Home Start was founded in the UK but is now active in 22 countries across 5 continents.
Home Start offers a free of charge service providing support and friendship to families with at least one child through regular home visiting. Trained volunteers, usually parents themselves from the local community, help parents to grow in confidence, strengthen their relationships with their children and widen their links with the community.
Whatever the issues families face – isolation, finding it difficult to cope with the demands of parenthood and the stresses of life or facing financial hardship, marital problems, domestic violence, ill health and disabilities – Home Start volunteers supervised by professional staff (often called coordinators) offer a non-judgmental hand of friendship ensuring children have the best possible start in life.
Increasingly, additional services are being offered by Home Start schemes to meet the challenges of child rearing in difficult circumstances. These include income generation, reaching out to refugees, psychosocial counseling, nutritional support and prevention of child abuse and neglect.
Moments with Mothers is based in The Netherlands and will partner specifically with Home Start in the Eemland region of the country for a special fundraiser this Mother's Day. With a goal to raise enough funds to send a special, personalized greeting card to each of the mother's currently supported by Home Start Eemland.
For a small 5 Euro donation, Moments with Mothers will be able to contribute a beautiful card illustrated by local artist Natasha Sena from Heartily Art featuring the message 'You Are Not Alone' on the cover - as well as a personalized note written together with Home Start volunteers for each mother in their program. A portion of each purchase also will be donated directly to Home Start Eemland to support their programs supporting parents across the region.
The greeting cards will be delivered to each of the mothers on Mother's Day, celebrated on Sunday, May 9th in The Netherlands.
Moments with Mother's is also currently selling unique Mother's Day Gift Boxes, including handmade products by various female owned small businesses based in the Amsterdam area. Featuring handmade accessories & beauty products by Ikala Fashion, Pompa Ceramics, DIYS Soap, Kind Kind Candles, & NaturalByAdrienne - the gift boxes come in various combinations & color schemes - with a portion of each box sold also contributing to the current fundraiser for Home Start. The boxes can be purchased until April 23rd & ship worldwide.
