A gift for your mother. A gift for all mothers, and for women everywhere
This Mother’s Day, give the gift of prevention.
You might be aware that the modern origins of Mother’s Day have nothing to do with gifts of chocolate truffles, silk scarves and perfume. In fact, Mother’s Day started as a celebration of women’s grassroots activism.
This is why donating to BCAM this Sunday in honour of your mother, or any woman you love, makes the perfect gift.
BCAM is a non-profit activist and advocacy group run by women who understand the trauma of breast cancer. We’re working harder than ever before to raise awareness about prevention and environmental links to this disease. We’re doing this to make the world a safer place for women of all ages, and reduce the risks of cancer through education about prevention.
As activists, we celebrate women everyday; but we also try to protect them. As activists, that’s our job.
Our safe cosmetics campaign and FemmeToxic projects are in full swing. Our interns are busy starting their summer outreach work, booking presentations and workshops into next fall. Our staff are making ties with community groups across the city and Canada so that our educational programs can reach more women and their loved ones.
All this work is exciting. But we need your help.
Sunday is fast approaching, but it isn’t too late! So make a tax-deductible donation in honour of the women you love. A membership is only 25 dollars, but no amount is ever too small.
You can make a donation online right now by going to our website.
This year, make your Mother’s Day meaningful for all women.
