Idea: Gift some sparkle from Kendra Scott
Perfect for: Those special ladies in your life
Beautiful jewelry that gives back to the causes we love most is the very heart of Kendra Scott. Gift special ladies in your life with a piece she will cherish. On December 4 and 5, Mommies In Need receives 20 percent of proceeds when you use the code GIVEBACK-0LQ9.
“We make a choice to see the good in every day – in the mirror, in each other, and in our communities. When we see the good that’s possible, together, we can create it.” - Kendra Scott
Idea: Give the Gift that Gives Back
Perfect for: That thoughtful person you adore, a mom or grandmother, or even corporate holiday gifting
The gift to give this year is one that acknowledges our many blessings and helps others in need. With a gift to the Mommies In Need Holiday Giving Campaign, you can provide childcare for a parent battling a health crisis and take at least one big worry off their minds.
Donations of any size are acknowledged with a dedicated bowwith their name on it on the giving wall at Annie’s Place. Donations of $100 or more, or sign-ups for monthly donations, are acknowledged with a special bell featuring their name on our giving wall. Mommies In Need Founder and CEO Natalie Boyle will be reading off names on special Facebook Lives throughout the month of December, so tune in to hear yours!
Additionally, donors who give $25 or more may request a new Mommies In Need gift card to be sent to the person they are honoring with their donation (or we can send it to you and you can tuck it inside a Christmas package as an added surprise!). Your recipient can keep the card as a special memento of your gift to them, while your thoughtfulness provides a day of care for a family in need.
Donations are tax-deductible and any dollar amount helps. (Did you know that $25 provides a day of care at Annie’s Place?) To learn more or to make a gift, click here.
Idea: Gift Beautiful Notecards
Perfect for: Teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, or for anyone who loves to write beautiful notes
Send your sweetest thoughts on beautiful notecards from Mommies In Need, or gift these to that hostess or teacher. Available in packs of 10 for only $25 (plus shipping), these beautiful notecards each feature a piece of art in the very first Mommies In Need Art Collection. Ten North Texas artists—all talented women—have contributed their art to benefit our mission to provide childcare, community and compassion to parents battling a health crisis. This pack of 10 notecards has 10 different beautiful pieces of art to admire, making this a perfect gift for yourself or someone special in your life. Gift cards are available here.
Idea: Gift a Virtual Visit with Santa
Perfect for: The littles in your life – children, grandchildren, neighborhood friends
Don’t miss this: The Big Guy in Red will make an appearance at Annie’s Place on Sunday, December 13, live from the Mommies In Need Facebook page. Sponsored by Comerica Bank, Santa will read a holiday story for all of the good little boys and girls at 1 p.m.
Then, from 1:30 to 4 p.m. on December 13, Santa will be doing individual live virtual visits with the kiddos in your life. Parents will even receive a keepsake photo of the visit. Advance registration is required (click here). And because Comerica Bank covered Santa's travel expenses from the North Pole, the suggested donation of $20 goes directly to the Mommies In Need mission of caring for the children of parents battling a health crisis!
The staff and volunteers of Mommies In Need wishes everyone a happy, healthy holiday season.
