I donated in honor of my mother...

I donate to the breastcancer.org folks in honor of my mother. My mother didn't have breast cancer. I did. But I could not have made it through as well as I did without her unending love and support. I know there are many women out there who battle this disease that don't have the support I did (emotionally and financially). So wanted to give something back!

    I got something in the mail from BCO today.  It was a letter suggesting making a donation in honor of mother's day.  I think that is a great idea and I plan to do so.  I don't know about the rest of you, but my mother doesn't need another candle, sweater, or bottle of perfume.  Making a donation to an organization that helps people is a wonderful gift.  For her birthday in January, I made a donation to globalgiving.org.  to be used to help supply clean water for places that do not have it.  For my father's birthday in March, I made a donation to globalgiving.org to be used for the Tsunami relief for Japan.  They were both very appreciative and thought the gifts were a wonderful idea.  This breast cancer forum helps so many women, me included and a donation to help keep this forum in operation to help other women would be a beautiful tribute to my mother who has always been there for me.  Just a thought as many people are pondering how to honor their mothers next week.
