For over fifty years, Mother's Day was about women working together for a better world.
Give a gift to Inter Pares today, and send an e-card or print card as a tribute to the mothers in your life.
Mother's Day was born from the dream of a devoted activist and mother who first organized women into public health brigades, and then founded "Mothers Friendship Day" to reconcile communities torn apart by the U.S. Civil War.
A few years later, a new "Mothers' Day for Peace" began with a call for women to unite across national boundaries to end war.
Celebrate Mother's Day the way her-story intended: with a little peace and justice.
This year, reclaim the original meaning of Mother's Day!
Give to Inter Pares – a Canadian organization working with women internationally to promote peace and justice – and send tribute cards to the women making a difference in your life.
Pay homage to your mother, remember your grandmother, or recognize any person important to you.
Take back the day by supporting women around the world working for better futures – for themselves, their communities, and their societies.
