This Mother's Day honor your mother with a gift that will provide a woman and her baby in crisis tools for their survival. Our goal is to provide $2,000 worth of supplies that will be ready to go for the next response effort. Purchasing a supply kit for a woman in need instead of sending flowers or a card will make a big impression on Mom.
Circle of Health International (COHI) is partnering with Maternova to create a one of a kind supply drive. Maternova is the supplier of products that women need in disaster settings. When a disaster strikes COHI purchases the supplies it needs from Maternova. Your gift will allow COHI to be prepared for the next natural disaster that hits with the supplies it needs to respond quickly.
To let your mom know you've made this life giving supply purchase, we will send her a Mother's Day card on your behalf. Please remember to list her name and address when you are checking out.
Step 1: Choose a Gift Card Amount (see slide show pics on the left side of this screen).
Step 2: Click the "Donate to this Fundraiser" button and enter the amount you wish to give.

Instead of giving flowers or candy, give a gift that will provide life saving supplies for women in crisis. Be the change you want to see! Your Mom will be honored.
