Your mom is the best. She always answers your calls when you need to vent about something and makes you your favorite food when you鈥檙e a #BackHomeBaller, and she started聽basically every cool fashion trend out there. There鈥檚 no question that your fave lady deserves an amazing Mother鈥檚 Day. While there are plenty of non-traditional gifts worthy of your mom, this year, consider donating to a charitable organization on her behalf or purchasing her present from a company that supports great causes 鈥 not only will she love the sentiment, but your gift will give back and make a difference.

Mother and adult daughter

1.聽Every Mother Counts:聽This organization, founded by model and activist Christy Turlington Burns, works to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for women in the US and around the world. While 99 percent of maternal deaths take place in developing countries, Every Mother Counts鈥 website notes that the number of women who lose their lives during childbirth in America has nearly doubled over the past 25 years. The goal of Every Mother Counts is to eradicate these preventable deaths by providing聽better healthcare infrastructure to places that need it most.

2.聽American Association of University Women:聽As a national grassroots organization, AAUW works to promote聽equity and education for women and girls. Through initiatives such as research, public policies, and mentorship for members, AAUW aims to break down economic and educational barriers that women face.

3.聽Central Park NYC:聽If want to give your mom the classic Mother鈥檚 Day gift of flowers but also want to give back, consider donating flowers to Central Park in New York City. For as little as $50, the Central Park Conservancy will plant flowers in your mother鈥檚 honor, and she鈥檒l receive an e-Card or physical certificate noting the donation. It鈥檚 the perfect way to keep the flower tradition alive while brightening聽someone else鈥檚聽day.

4.聽Susan G. Komen:聽Unfortunately, most of us know someone affected by breast cancer. Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in the US, and it鈥檚 estimated that more than 250,000 American women will be diagnosed each year. Breast cancer mortality rates have decreased by 38 percent from 1989 to 2014 as a result of improved breast cancer treatment and early detection, and Susan G. Komen aims to decrease this number even more through early detection and research for the cure.

5.聽The Humane Society:聽If your mom is an animal lover (because who isn鈥檛?!), consider making a donation on her behalf to your local humane society or animal shelter. If you really want to make her Mother鈥檚 Day gift charitable and unforgettable, you might want to think about getting her the ultimate gift: a pet of her own!

6.聽Imperfect Produce:聽Did you know that聽more than 20 percent of the fruits and veggies grown in the US never make it to grocery stores because they鈥檙e deemed too ugly? In 2015, Ben Simon decided to give all fruit a chance by creating Imperfect Produce, a food delivery service that sends fresh, delicious (imperfect) fruits and veggies to you for up to half of grocery store prices 鈥 and helps cut back on food waste. Great cause, great food. What more could mom want?!

7.聽Flowers for Dreams:聽Since the Chicago-based company鈥檚 launch in 2012, Flowers for Dreams has donated more than $262,866 to causes such as the Chicago Women鈥檚 Health Center,聽Mercy Home for Boys and Girls, and聽The Arts of Life. Bouquets cost as little as $35, a portion of proceeds benefit local charities, and delivery is free in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas, making it easy and affordable to give the gift of flowers that have an added special meaning.
