This Mother's Day forgo the Stuff!

As Mother’s Day approaches, Canadians are scouring the mall for unwanted and likely anticipated gifts; handheld vacuums, scented candles, flowers and kitchen supplies.

This Mother’s Day, War Child Canada is encouraging Canadians to forgo the typical closet bound junk and instead donate to others in need on behalf of their mother.

As part of the Mother’s Day Sacrifice campaign, mothers can visit and pledge to sacrifice their gift and instead, ask their families to make a donation to War Child on their behalf.

To help drive home the point that no gift is the best gift, funny and light gift cards are available to send to families to encourage them to donate.
