Honor Mom This Mother’s Day

Nana and I travel to Amish Country almost every year.  One of the things we love to do is browse the stores with homemade quilts– the squares and patterns tell a story to the quilter and they are made out of love for others.  Some quilts are new fabric, cut into pieces and arranged into art.  Others are bits of clothing and fabrics that mean something to the individual quilting.  What would you put on your quilt to tell your story?

This Mother’s Day, honor an influential woman in your life with a digital quilt square from Opportunity International! For $5, you can choose one of 20 digital quilt patch designs or you can create your own square.  No matter which design-type you choose, you can share it electronically with your honoree and include a special message.

The best part?  With Opportunity International’s generous donors, your $5 donation will be matched dollar for dollar! Your $5 donation will be $10 to help give other women the opportunity to thrive!

Opportunity International launched the Invest in One, Honor Mom campaign to celebrate Mother’s Day around the world.  The campaign is to celebrate the strength and resilience of all moms and women everywhere.

Women are three times more likely to reinvest in their children and their communities.

So, what happens to your investment?

  • A woman is given a loan to start a business
  • She receives vital business information, leadership, and training to help her succeed
  • Her trust group supports and empowers her for success
  • Her business grows and she repays her loan
  • The money from the loan repayment is used to assist other women with loans to start their own businesses.

Check out the quilt here!  And, check back tomorrow to see my patch for my Mom and Mother-in-Laws, as well as my haiku for Newborn Health!
