Help a mother out for Mother's Day

How about giving to those mothers who have little or nothing on this day? Give to the organization "Help A Mother Out (HAMO)." They are dedicated to increasing access to diapers for families in need. Started by two moms (March, 2009) with an initial investment of $100, this one time diaper drive has evolved into a nationally-recognized grassroots organization raising diapers, awareness, and advocating for long term change in the social safety net. Their vision is a day when every baby has an adequate supply of diapers. The testimonials on their website will break your heart.
