Vegan & Fair Trade Mother's Day Gifts
Show your mother, or that extraordinary woman in your life, a little extra appreciation on Mothers Day. Vegan, organic and fair trade gifts for Mom are a nice addition to special favors and time spent together. Celebrate her unique qualities and thank Mom for her endless kindnesses on Mother's Day.
Mother's Day was celebrated in ancient cultures around the world honoring motherhood, often portrayed as a goddess. In the US, original attempts at establishing a Mother's Day for Peace were undertaken by Julia Ward Howe. Deeply distressed by the effects of war, she worked with soldiers and their widows and orphans on both sides of the Civil War. She witnessed the devastation it caused and the economic crisis that followed and determined that two of the most important causes in the world were peace and equality. In 1870, at the beginning of the Franco-Prussian war, she called for women everywhere to join together and oppose war in all its forms and pledge to seek peaceful resolutions instead. While she was unsuccessful in achieving formal recognition for a Mother's Day for Peace, her work was carried on by the daughter of Anna Jarvis. Jarvis worked to found a memorial day for women, the first of which was celebrated in West Virginia in 1907. The custom spread to most of the US and in 1914  President Wilson declared the first national Mother's Day. Read Julia Ward Howe's inspiring Mother's Day Proclamation
