Mother's Day Gifts That Make A Difference

Holidays are wonderful opportunities for giving gifts that make the world better. In fact, 70% of Americans say they would welcome less emphasis on the usual gift giving and spending during holidays. That probably means that a gift that gives back might just be very welcomed by the special woman in your life on Mother's Day.

There are so many charities that offer special Mother's Day promotions, and plenty of retailers who offer merchandise with a cause attached. Here are five possibilities for your Mother's Day Gift.
