Happy Mother's Day!

What to give to the Mom who has everything?  (Besides a trip to Paris, which she always wants)

A trend I started at Father's Day--to honor my father with a donation in his honor to a charity that he would support, I continued this Mother's Day to honor my dear mom.

In honor of my mother, and her lifetime of work as a feminist, I made a donation in her honor to the National Organization for Women (NOW).  She raised a good feminist son, who thought this would be an appropriate way to celebrate all that she had taught him about the fight for equal rights for women.

Meanwhile, I made a second donation to Planned Parenthood, because she taught me that everyone should have a choice when they want to celebrate Mother's Day.
