Our mother is the wonderful person who gave us life, nurtured us, and is always there for us. To all the mothers reading these words, we at SavingSpecies honor all that you have done and still do for your loved ones.
And to all the children of mothers, remember this Sunday (May 12) is Mother’s Day — a day to reflect on the nurturing, the joy and the life our mother has given us.
At SavingSpecies, we think of Mother’s Day also as a time to thank our other mother — the mother of all life, the mother of us all: our precious, beautiful planet Earth.
Just like our human mothers, Mother Earth gives us life and joy, nurtures us, and is always there for us. A day that honors our mothers should also be a time to remember Mother Earth and nature’s bounty.
This Mother’s Day, take a moment to feel Mother Earth on the ground you tread, in the life-giving air you breathe, in the fragrant spring flowers you sniff, the refreshing water you drink, and the delicious food you taste. And consider too, across the world, its forests, mountains, fields and seas, the abundance and beauty of life she sustains.
Traditionally we honor our moms on Mother’s Day with bouquets of flowers, so this coming occasion, take a moment to honor Mother Earth too—by contributing to our orchid conservation project in Colombia’s cloud forests.
A gift to SavingSpecies in Mother Earth’s honor This Mother’s Day, will protect, nourish and sustain her — just like she has always done for you. Donate today to help save Mother Earth and her species.
