  • Support Your Local Women’s Shelter

Women’s shelters support mothers and children who are without homes for a range of reasons. Whether facing financial hardships, rebuilding after natural disasters, or seeking refuge from domestic abuse, women from all walks of life rely on the resources that shelters provide.

  • Support Compassion for Animal Moms

This is a special holiday to celebrate mothers of all species. Sadly, most mother cows, pigs, and chickens spend their lives suffering on factory farms. Awareness of the cruelty of animal agriculture is growing, and more and more people are choosing a more compassionate vegan lifestyle. Compassion Over Killing works tirelessly to bring the truth to light through undercover investigations on factory farms, corporate campaigns that make vegan options more easily accessible, and helpful resources — like TryVeg.com — that make vegan living simple and delicious. Donate today to help create a kinder world for all mothers.
