Give Another Mom the Best Mother’s Day Gift of All: A Ray of Life

Are you wondering what to get your mom for Mother’s Day?

Rather than racing out to get flowers or chocolates or some other store-bought concoction that is lovely, but not necessarily the most meaningful, make a donation that will truly help another mom in need.

Meet Laura

Laura Vickers is a mom with two beautiful little children (Samantha and Gavin), wife to my high school friend, Travis, who is bravely battling cancer. Her friends have put together a 5k race to raise money and help pay down her mounting medical bills and provide opportunities for therapies to help her cope with the traditional treatments she is receiving. The less time she and Travis have to spend worrying about things like mounting medical bills, the more quality time they have as a family.

The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

If you live in Atlanta, sign up with your mom, mother-in-law, or other mom friends today to participate in Ray of Life Race 2010 — A Fund of Hope For Laura Vickers on June 12th at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. The time that you’ll get to spend together training for the race and then again on the day itself is a gift any mom would love (even if you just walk!).

If you’re not in Atlanta, or you can’t make the event, a donation in your mother’s name is a great mother’s day gift for moms who have everything.
