Mother's Day.

Mother's day is Sunday, May 8th. A day when we celebrate the wonder of a woman's capacity to create life and to love it to distinction. And in that spirit of celebrating love and life and all things feminine, let us remember, that around the world, woman and girls are trapped in the horror of sex-trafficking and slave labor. So on this Mother's day why not send Mom a card telling her that you love her times infinity and that you have donated on her behalf to a cause
you knew she would love, like helping International Justice Mission in stopping the sexual exploitation and forced labor of women and girls, and My Refuge House in restoring the lives of girls who have been trafficked into the illegal sex trade.

This mother was freed from slavery in a South Asian rock quarry by International Justice Mission.

And if you still wanna get her flowers please use 1-800-Flowers or FTD who now offer Fair Trade flowers. “Fair Trade” assures consumers that workers, many of them mothers themselves, receive decent wages in safe conditions.

And if Mom likes beautiful hand-made local jewelry, hairbands, hair clips and more, you can buy them at our lovely friend Rebekah's Etsy store called Beetlebutton. All proceeds go to stop human trafficking!

One of Rebekah's hairclips. All her creations are one-of-a-kind, made from vintage and recycled materials.

From all of us at COH. Thank you for being a voice for the voiceless! Happy Mother's day!
