Help spread the love this Mother's day
Mother’s day is nearly here, 31st 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. 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! 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 basic essentials to make sure their children do not go without, and are facing adversely difficult situations. 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 #Mum2Mum Mother’s day campaign mission to let all Mums know they are doing a fantastic job.
The whole idea behind #Mum2Mum 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 sixth year, Stripey Stork’s #Mum2Mum campaign is going from strength to strength. Last year they provided 227 gifts and cards for Mums in need, and this year we are aiming for 300 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 purchasing unique pieces of jewellery you can all do your bit to show every Mum some love.
Buy one of Stripey Stork Exclusive cards
This year Stripey Stork have teamed up with Emily, a Surrey illustrator behind the company Doodlemoo to design these 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.
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, 31st 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!

The extremely talented Surrey based jeweller Becky Pearce is also helping to support the charity. She is offering two of her beautifully handcrafted necklaces for sale this Mother’s Day, with 20% of all these sales going towards #Mum2Mum.

If none of these takes your fancy, you can always 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 31st March). And not forgetting that all important 25% gift aid if you’re a UK tax payer.
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.
