Mothers’ Day Movement (MDM) was founded by a small group of women who believe in making a difference for women around the globe.
“Americans are expected to spend $25 billion this Mother’s Day on flowers, earrings and meals. Go ahead: These women are worth it and more!

The Mothers’ Day Movement is a worthy effort to honor mothers in part by saving mothers’ lives.”
