Celebrate Mamas Day 2015
For all the mamas, everywhere. #MamasDay
All mamas deserve to be seen, respected, celebrated & loved, and here is a terrific, innovative way to show you agree! Mamasday.org has created 45 different images of families and their mamas, representing the variety of people who make up diverse families.
For Mother’s Day local drugstores fill their shelves with a wide variety of cookie cutter greeting cards that don’t represent the diverse reality of families. They focus on one image of mothers, excluding mamas based on their sexual orientation, race, class, immigration status and more. It’s not only frustrating and isolating to feel like your family is not recognized or respected – it is inaccurate! Family structures are as diverse as the people in them. And all mamas and families deserve to be seen and respected in all of their forms.
Change the outdated ideals of what makes a family, join us in celebrating recognizing all mamas – particularly those who find it hard to see themselves reflected in mainstream media or in the Hallmark aisle.
