Doing Good on Mother’s Day
Gifts. Luncheons. Flowers.
Personally, I’m ready for some new ideas. Since my mom has three children, in addition to me, I bet that she is, too.
This Mother’s Day, we are lucky to have Buy Good. Feel Good., North America’s largest marketplace for social enterprises, open all weekend. Of course, I’m always looking for ways to incorporate that do-good factor into my gift-giving. Add the fun of strolling through a market, and I’m smitten. Is there anything better than making the process of finding the gift a part of giving it?
