Mothers play a crucial role in overcoming the brutal grip of slavery. It’s typically the mothers of a village who begin the process of mobilizing their community to break free. And it’s often mothers who organize village watchdog groups to ensure their neighbors stay free once they’ve escaped.
You can build a bridge between a mother in your life and the mothers on the front lines of slavery by making a Mother’s Day donation to Free the Slaves. Send an e-Card to let your mother know that a gift has been made on her behalf to fight slavery.
When you visit our e-Card gallery, you can select a card and personalize your message. It will go out on the day before Mother’s Day. Or, if you donate by May 3rd, we can send your card by U.S. mail.
This year, Free the Slaves is working in partnership with the Mothers’ Day Movement to stress the importance of rethinking Mother’s Day giving priorities. More than $18 billion is spent annually in the U.S. on flowers, cards and meals for Mother’s Day. You can make Mother’s Day more meaningful by giving a gift that fights slavery.
Also this year, the need to protect mothers and families is especially urgent with the recent earthquake in Nepal and a cyclone in India that struck our sex slavery survivor shelter. Your contributions will help our staffers and partner organizations rebuild their lives and resume their important work to protect vulnerable communities from traffickers.
Thank you for your support.
