Mother’s Day is upon us and if you’re like me you find the normal Mother’s Day gifts well, a little too predictable. Sure Mom would love to sleep in, eat breakfast in bed, or enjoy some pretty flowers. What if you could get her something she LOVED that helped others too?
I love featuring brands that give back to deserving women. Because when you give to a woman, chances are she’s using that money to feed her family, buy clothes for her kids, or she’s helping others. While I have partnered with a couple on this post, mostly I just want you to know these AMAZING organizations.

“Elevate is a non-profit that believes in creating sustainable job solutions globally that improve lives and transform communities.”
The purses, wallets, and accessories of Elevate are some of the most beautiful, well made, high quality items I have ever had the opportunity to view. I fell in love with their bags about two years ago when I first saw them in person.The bags and purses are so well made they are worth every penny! The stitching is perfect, designs beautiful, and the leather authentic. However, I fell in love with their mission even more.
Elevate helps to educate men and women to help them create businesses and lead their communities. They do more than just provide sewing jobs–they empower through education, mentorship, micro-financing, and long term sustainability.
Raven + Lily
Empowering over 1,500 women artisans in over 9 countries, Raven + Lily is a fair trade for profit company that is making a positive impact on so many talented women. I love their jewelry especially and am a proud owner of a few different pairs of earrings.
Warby Parker is literally giving sight to the blind. They have given over 5 million pairs of eye glasses to those impoverished around the world. While this type of Mother’s Day gift is unconventional–it gives to an amazing cause! I am a personal customer, owning my eyeglasses from WP. These are amazing quality and have survived a toddler who is obsessed with snatching them off my face. A gift card is always a good idea but they have amazing sunglasses as well–prescription and non.
Much like the rest, 31 Bits gives opportunity and job creation to the makers of their goods. Ethically made, fair wage, and community impact are just a few words to describe the mission of 31 Bits. The company empowers artisans to use their talents to create beautiful jewelry, home decor, and textiles.
Whatever you decide to do for Mother’s Day, make mom proud. Show her you love and appreciate all she has done for you! Believe me, you never realize all the sacrifices she’s made until you’re a mom yourself. For more inspiration be sure to follow along on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest!
