We all love a great Mother’s Day gift, I know I do. Over the years my teen daughter has delighted me in creating some amazing art pieces, craft pieces, a hand bag, and even jewelry. I am definitely surprised every Mother’s Day. Now that she has an allowance she has even started buying me gifts. Now what better way to choose a gift that comes from Mamas themselves, a gift for moms that helps moms this Mother’s Day: the Neno Mom bracelet.
This Mother’s Day, DHL Express Canada and Me to We Artisans, a line of original accessories handcrafted by Maasai mama artisans in Kenya, have teamed up to celebrate mothers around the world with Me to We Artisans’ Neno Mom Bracelet. Sustainably produced using locally sourced materials, this unique Mother’s Day gift provides a personal connection between the consumer and a working artisan and helps support these mothers in raising healthy children. With every bracelet purchased DHL will donate $5 to provide a mother and child in a Free The Children community overseas with one health clinic visit.
“Having worked side by side with these talented women through Me to We Artisans since 2010, I’ve seen that every dollar earned by a mother directly impacts her home, her children and her community. However, there is still a large part of the population that doesn’t have access to basic needs, like health care. In Kenya, less than 30% of the population has access to basic maternal and child health services,” said Roxanne Joyal, CEO of Me to We, founder of Me to We Artisans. “Through DHL’s generosity this Mother’s Day, consumers can make a direct impact in a mama’s life overseas while at the same time give a gift their mothers can cherish and enjoy.”
“It is our philosophy to be a socially conscious company, and we are proud to be part of this new Mother’s Day initiative,” said Greg Hewitt, President of DHL Express Canada. “The new program will enable us to continue to help the Me to We Artisans and make a significant impact on children and families across the globe, which includes basic healthcare and education to those who need it most.”
The Neno Mom Bracelet features a hand-cast brass pendant inscribed with the word “Mom”. The pendant is hand-knotted on a nylon cord and accented with two brass pieces. The bracelet also features a genuine pearl attached to the pendant with brass wire. The bracelet retails at $24.99 and is available for purchase at www.metowe.com or at the Me to We store located at 233 Carlton Street, Toronto, Ontario.
One of the reasons I love this gift idea this Mother’s Day is the direct connection it gives us with these Maasai mamas as well as helping fund important health clinic visits. I know I can’t wait to get mine and this is one mom who will be definitely wearing it with pride.
