Second annual Mother's Day Gratitude Project is announced.

"In honor of a woman you know and love, and in solidarity with mothers around the world," the Church of the Brethren's Global Women's Project has announced its 2nd annual Mother's Day Gratitude Project.

"Rather than buying more material gifts for your loved one, express your gratitude with a gift that helps other women around the world," said the announcement. "Your donation allows us to fund projects focused on women's health, education, and employment. In return, your chosen recipient will receive a card indicating that a gift has been made in her honor."

To participate, send a donation to the Global Women's Project, Church of the Brethren General Offices, 1451 Dundee Ave., Elgin, IL 60120. Include your name and the recipient's name and address. Memorial donations also will be received, and will be honored on a special page on the project's website. Gratitude cards will be mailed to honorees in time for Mother's Day on Sunday, May 11.

The Global Women's Project seeks to raise awareness of the poverty, oppression, and injustice suffered by women around the world; to recognize how our overconsumption and misuse of resources contributes to that suffering; to change our way of living; and to support self-help community projects that are led by, empower, and benefit women.
