Help Celebrate Single Moms This Mother's Day
I just wanted to send you a quick reminder that Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 13th! Most of you are well aware of this, but I know life can get a bit busy, and a few of you may be thankful for the reminder.
As I reflect on Mother's Day this year, I am certainly grateful for my mom and my bride, the mother of my two children, but this year, single moms are also on my heart. Even though many moms will be celebrating their motherhood with brunch and bouquets or beautiful flower baskets, many single moms will be counting down the hours for this Sunday to be over with.
Did you know that there are 15 million single mothers in the United States today? It is likely that you know several single moms in your life.
As Christian men, we are called to stand up and defend the fatherless (Psalm 82:3). Single moms are strong, resilient, and have grit. I cannot think of a more appropriate time to stand up and defend the single moms of this country.
“For in You the fatherless find compassion.”
Uplifting Dads, let's help celebrate single moms this Mother's Day. Through my parent networking over the past couple of years, I have had the honor of connecting with Jennifer Barnes Maggio of The Life of a Single Mom Ministries a few years back. Her story is amazing, but her passion to empower single moms is contagious. I want to honor her ministry by doing a fundraiser.
With Mother's Day just around the corner, what better time to support the 71,000 single mothers Jennifer and her ministry serves. You can donate at https://thelifeofasinglemom.com/donate/ . Be sure to input the code: MASTER in the "special instructions" section under the donation amount. This will help us track your support.
A generous friend of single moms has agreed to match our team's donations up to $200. Every dollar you give, no matter if it is $5, $20, $100, or more, will help support this amazing single moms ministry. Don't forget to type MASTER in the special instructions.
Let's help provide hope for our single mothers and their kids. Donate today!
Happy Mother's Day to ALL Moms from Uplifting Dads!
