Show Your Mumsie, She’s the Onesie This Mother’s Day

Don’t be sheepish; tell your mum she’s your only ‘Onesie’ this Mother’s Day with a gift that won’t require any wrapping paper, sticky tape and a last minute dash to the shops. The You’re the Onesieor Don’t Be Sheepish gifts from TEAR Fund’s Gift for Life catalogue will not only bless her, but also a mother living in poverty.

While many Kiwi mums will be showered with gifts and pampered on Mother’s Day, other mothers around the world are struggling to make ends meet and provide for their loved ones. TEAR Fund, offers a practical way for New Zealanders to honour their own mums whilst helping poor mums overseas through meaningful and life-changing gifts.

Achidate from Niger says, “I have four children. We had no milk to make porridge, and we used grass to make sauce. Only the men had animals, but now we have animals and I can support my family.”

The gift will be sure to score you some brownie points and your mum will love that you have shown your sensitive side by thinking of those less fortunate.

TEAR Fund’s marketing manager, Sheena Duffy says, “We encourage Kiwis to do something a little different this Mother’s Day. You could be the greatest kid to two mums: your mother and another mother on the other side of the world. “

TEAR Fund will send all Gift for Life buyers a special card explaining the gift and how it will benefit the recipient. TEAR Fund’s Gift for life Mother’s Day initiatives can be bought online throughwww.giftforlife.co.nz or by phoning 0800 800 777.
