Mother’s day is nearly here, 22nd March is the day we get to celebrate our fabulous Mums and also be celebrated as Mums ourselves of course.

It goes without saying that being a Mum is one of the toughest, most rewarding jobs out there and not a day goes by that we don’t recognise the hard work and sacrifices that all you Mums across the world make for your families. So much so, every year the country sets aside a whole day to honour and celebrate the women who raised us and of course so your kids can celebrate you too, the best Mum in the world.

But not all Mums will be spoilt this Mother's day or be recognised for all their hard work they do day in and day out. There are some Mums who do not have partners, family or a support system around them to remind them that they are doing an amazing job and keep them feeling appreciated! These brilliant Mums may be facing difficult situations, running from someone who is trying to hurt them or are simply in need of a little support and taking on the role of Mum all by themselves. They love unconditionally, sacrifice their own basic essentials to make sure their children do not go without, and are facing adversely difficult situations every day. Their little ones love them unconditionally but may be too young to get them a gift or write a card to truly show their appreciation this Mother's day.

We believe every Mum should be recognised and loved, especially on this special day. So, we have teamed up with Stripey Stork to help them in their 2020 #Mum2Mum Mother’s day campaign to let all Mums know they are doing a fantastic job and give them a token of appreciation.

Give back this mothers day



The whole idea behind Stripey Stork's #Mum2Mum campaign is to recognise Mum’s who don’t normally feel loved by sending them a personalised card, these can either be blank so their little one can write a personal message to their Mum or Stripey Stork will hand write an encouraging note if their child is too young. That’s not all, Stripey Stork want to also give these Mum’s a special gift. With each card they send out they also provide small gift sets or pamper pack for them to open.

Now in it’s seventh year, Stripey Stork’s #Mum2Mum campaign is going from strength to strength. Last year they provided 529 gifts and cards for Mums in need, and this year we are aiming to do even more, but we need your help!

To make sure every Mum gets the all important recognition they deserve we just had to get involved and we hope you will too. From donating money, buying one of their exclusively designed cards or donating a gift, you can all do your bit to show every Mum some love.

Share the love on Mother's Day


Buy one of Stripey Stork Exclusive cards

This year Stripey Stork have teamed up with Nicola B studio  the gorgeous exclusive #Mum2Mum Mother’s day cards. We just love their funky colourful design, and we know your Mum would too.

These cards are on sale in our Surrey store with all proceeds going directly to support this amazing campaign. You can buy these designs for your Mum for £2.50, with the additional option to add an additional £2.50 to go towards a gift for a Mum in need. You will receive a gift card saying “a gift has been donated on your behalf to a Mum in need” with their card. There is no better gift than the gift of giving. We know your Mum/Mum-in-Law will appreciate that you were thinking of others on this special day.

We’d love to see the cards standing proud on your mantelpiece so please share on social media using the hashtag #Mum2Mum2020 (and tagging @naturalbabyshower + @StripeyStork).

If you are super organised and already have your Mother’s day cards sorted, don’t worry you can still help! There is also a donation pot in store for you to donate towards this amazing campaign.

The more you shop the more we will donate

As well as the exclusive cards in store, we will be donating a proportion of Natural Baby Shower's sales from Mother’s Day to Stripey Stork to support the #Mum2Mum campaign. On Mother’s Day, 22nd March, we will donate 1% of all sales online and in store to Stripey Stork so they can continue supporting Mother’s and offering invaluable aid to families experiencing hardship.

The more you shop the more we will donate to this amazing cause, it's the perfect excuse for guilt free shopping. Happy shopping!

Donate online

If none of these takes your fancy, you can always simply donate online to do your bit for this amazing cause. Show a Mum you care by donating to the campaign fund via Localgiving. For just £5 we will arrange a mini pamper pack to be sent to each Mum referred to Stripey Stork. You can make your donation here at any time until Mother’s Day (Sunday 22nd March). And not forgetting that all important 25% gift aid if you’re a UK tax payer. 

Or you can buy a gift set from their Amazon wish list to then be donated to a Mum in need. It couldn't get simpler to do your bit, purchasing from their Amazon wish list means the chosen gift set will then be delivered direct to Stripey Stork's warehouse, ready to then be donated on Mother's Day to a deserving Mum.

These ways of getting involved are the perfect combination to treat your own Mum whilst supporting an amazing cause at the same time and make another Mother feel special. Motherhood is hard at the best of times, let alone when you are doing it alone or under difficult circumstances. Let's spread the love this Mother's Day.
