To Mama With Love supports Epic Change's mission to amplify the visibility & impact of grassroots changemakers. Funds raised will be invested to expand the efforts of these four extraordinary women.
In the US alone, $14.6B is spent annually on Mother's Day for "stuff" that could just never say what's in our hearts. What if instead, we all just unleashed that love on the world? How would it impact our world if we stopped using stuff as a surrogate for love? What if we invested that love to make the world a better place for Mamas & children everywhere?
To Mama With Love is a collaborative online art project that honors moms across the globe and raises funds to invest in remarkable women who are transforming our world. Scheduled for May 3-8, 2011, the site invites participants to create socially shareable "heartspaces" that include words, videos, photos & investments in honor of mamas they love.
Originally launched in 2010 by US nonprofit Epic Change, To Mama With Love appeared at the top of Mashable's 2010 lists of 4 Innovative Social Good Campaigns for Education and 9 Creative Social Good Campaigns Worth Recognizing. In less than a week leading up to Mother's Day, the site raised nearly $17,000, which was invested to build a children's home in Arusha, Tanzania. Construction is already complete, and children have now become residents of this home built from love.
