This Friday’s cartoon is by Grace Farris. Sending a hug to anyone who needs one. Mother’s Day isn’t always easy.
And if you’d like to donate this Mother’s Day, here are three worthy causes:
* National Bail Out reunites families all over the country on Mother’s Day by bailing out as many black mothers and caregivers as possible, providing supportive services and fellowship opportunities, and organizing to transform harmful systems (like money bail and pretrial detention).
* Restore helps raise funds and awareness on challenges faced by sex-trafficking survivors with children.
* Without Mom brings together organizations around the world — like Every Mother Counts and Black Mamas Matter — that help end preventable deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth, and ensure access to high-quality maternal care. xoxo
