WASHINGTON, D.C. — April 28, 2008 This Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 11) you can show every one of the moms in your life how much you care with a gift from World Wildlife Fund’s Online Gift Center. WWF Mother’s Day gifts are not only perfect for any mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, daughter, or mother to be, but also provide a way to help Mother Earth.
Choose from 80 different symbolic animal adoptions, as well as sustainable handicrafts, WWF apparel and more at www.worldwildlife.org. When you make a symbolic adoption with a donation of $50 or $100, your mother will receive a soft plush version of the adopted species in WWF’s exclusive Happy Mother’s Day bag, plus an adoption certificate, a color photo and a species fact-sheet – all shipped free via priority mail. Be sure to select the Mother’s Day bag during checkout to receive this free gift.
You can also select from a range of other environmentally friendly gifts, including jute shopping bags, 100% organic cotton t-shirts, one-of-a-kind accessories made from recycled flip flops, handmade acai bracelet sets, handwoven table runners and endangered species earrings – all responsibly produced and packaged. WWF’s sustainably produced handicraft selections promote alternative, sustainable sources of income for indigenous people, delivering economic benefits for local artisans and discouraging deforestation and species decline.
Not sure what to pick? Donate to WWF by selecting a gift adoption card and let your mom pick her favorite animal. A free WWF key chain will be included with every donation of $75 or more. Orders received by 11:59 p.m. ET on May 1 will arrive in time for Mother’s Day. No matter what gift you choose, your donation will help protect animals and their habitats for decades to come by supporting WWF’s conservation work around the world.
