Why I Choose to Celebrate Mothers Through MADRE

Jane Kavaloski celebrates Mothers Day by donating to MADRE

Jane Kavaloski, a MADRE supporter since 1986, has for many years chosen to honor the mothers in her life through MADRE. Here’s why:

“Mother’s Day became a national holiday in the United States over 100 years ago this May. The wish of founder Anna Jarvis was to set aside a day to remember those who have died in war and to work for peace. For years I have thought that the best way to commemorate Mother’s Day, and to honor my mother, sisters and daughters, was to make a donation to MADRE. MADRE is an organization that supports women and children living in the midst of war and violence around the globe.”

We thank Jane for her longtime support of MADRE and for her commitment and dedication to women’s human rights. Thank you, Jane!
