Mum2Mum2021 - a virtual hug this Mother's Day

We want to let every Mum which we are supporting this Mother's Day know that they're doing a fantastic job and their community cares – local families helping local families.

Mum to Mum.

This is our eighth Mum2Mum campaign and its reach grows every year. It resonates with so many of you and we receive great feedback from those who donate, as well as those who receive. 

Many of the Mums that we help won’t receive a gift on 14th March this year. Mums without partners, friends or family to recognise the difficult but amazing job they’re doing. Mums who go without all year round to provide for their children. It’s our way of sending a virtual hug, through a pamper gift set and bespoke designed handwritten card, so they are remembered on what should be a day celebrating how wonderful they really are.  

Here’s how you can support Mum2Mum this year – buy a toiletry gift set from our campaign’s Amazon wish list or donate to our Appeal and let us do the buying

The Soapy Zebra - local business supporting Mum2Mum

This year we are excited to be teaming up with The Soapy Zebra – a fantastic new venture launched by Kerry, one of our lovely and talented volunteers. We are so proud of her new business and forever grateful that she’s chosen to support Mum2Mum in this way. Kerry knows what receiving a Mum2Mum pack means to the Mums we support, which is why she’s created a limited edition Mum2Mum bar – a way of giving a virtual hug through her beautiful products. 

Each Mum2Mum bar is lovingly handmade, contains Mango and Shea butter, has a variety of captivating fragrances and a beautiful floral swirl design. Bars are £6 (+p&p) and ALL sales proceeds will be donated to Mum2Mum. Bars are available for pre-order now and if it’s a gift then you can specify their delivery address and add your own message. In these times, where we can’t give the hugs we’d like, a virtual hug through this special gift will be so appreciated. They also make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift for your own Mum, Mum-in-law, Grandma or Aunty. A beautiful way to spread the love, show kindness and support local.  

I was quite tearful to receive such an amazing gift. As my daughter is only 3, I had come to the conclusion any Mother’s Day gifts I received would be ones I paid for. This just changed it all! Knowing there are people empathising with your struggles and offering kindness and support is just so uplifting and heart warming.

We supported 565 Mums who would otherwise not have received any acknowledgement.

Please pass on my thanks, it was such a joy opening the bag and seeing all the things. There were mini size creams of a brand I love which I can’t afford to buy. It was all absolutely lovely and I really appreciated it.

The gift that keeps on giving...

Subject to availability, any gift packs leftover after Mother’s Day will be distributed in the weeks following. If we are lucky enough to have even more left after this period, then we will be including them with our ‘care packages’ sent throughout the year to local families in need – as a gift to Mum if it’s felt that it will be a well-received boost. Likewise, any funds leftover will also be used to support our general work throughout the year.

Thank you for your support.
