The happiest Mother’s Day card from Oxfam

| 0 comments

Do you want to do something special for your mother this weekend? If you’re fed up with the usual shop displays of mugs, chocolates, picture frames and flowers, maybe you could try something doing different? And best of all, it helps out a charity! So what have I done for my mum this Mother’s Day? I’ve dedicated a square on the world’s biggest Mother’s Day card, thanks to Oxfam.

The card was made up of lots of little squares to be filled with dedications to mums. Once a message was added, the amazing Oxfam artist Lizzie Cullen brought that square to life with beautiful art. Oxfam say “The Happiest Mother’s Day Card was created at a live art event held in London Westfield Shopping Centre, where every time someone celebrated an amazing mum, the painting on our giant card grew and blossomed.”

Dedicating a square to your mother is free, but its nice to include a small donation to Oxfam’s Mother Appeal, helping improve the lives of mums in some of the world’s poorest communities. Plus every message helps Oxfam get one step closer to breaking the Guinness World Record for the most ever messages in a card! There are already over 4000 messages written on the card so it is certainly heading in the right direction! There are 4 days left of this live event so get your message to your mum onto the website quickly! Here’s the link to the Oxfam card website where you can see the card and read all the dedications, then add your own: http://happiestmothersdaycard.org/

Plus if you’d like to give to Oxfam’s Mother Appeal anyway, you can make a £3 SMS donation by texting MOTHER to 70013. Or if you’d rather, you can donate an amount of your choice via their online donation form.
