Four Mother’s Day Gift Ideas that Empower Domestic Violence Survivors

Are you looking for a special way to honor your mother or an important woman in your life? Mother’s Day is just around the corner – Sunday, May 12th.

Consider these four Mother’s Day gift ideas that will make her smile, while empowering domestic violence survivors:


1. Make a donation in her name.

Honor your mother, mother’s memory, or special woman in your life by making a donation to WINGS in her name.

Your donation will empower domestic violence survivors, many of whom are mothers. Double your impact!… All new or increased gifts will be matched up to $20,000 by a generous donor’s matching grant.

Make a donation and download from one of three Mother’s Day cards to print or email to your loved one.

2. Shop Online.

  • AmazonSmile – Are you an avid Amazon shopper? Buy a gift through AmazonSmile (same website and deals as Amazon), select WINGS Program Inc., and a portion of the sale will go towards WINGS’ mission. Shop now at:

All proceeds benefit WINGS housing programs and support services.


3. Shop Resale.

4. Attend an Event.
