The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Weekdays 5:00am - 10:00am

Sunday is Mother’s Day.  And while many of us will be celebrating with mom and the family, not everyone has that option, because our moms are no longer with us.  It’s a tough day for me, as it is for many.

Here are five different, “outside of the box” ways to celebrate mom this weekend, that can be very rewarding, fulfilling, and heart-warming!

  • Help mothers around the world

    Beasley Best Community of Caring

    Help mothers around the world.  The war in Ukraine has affected millions of women and children.  Consider donating to an organization that provides for women around the world who are in need.

  • Donate items

    Donation items

    Donate items.  Maybe it will help your mom around her house while doing some spring cleaning.  Maybe it will help you finally part with some items that you’ve been holding onto for too long.  But whatever you donate will help someone else.

  • Write a senior a letter, and make their day

    Write letter to elderly

    Write a stranger a letter.  There’s a program called Love For Our Elders that lets you write letters to seniors around the world.  And Mother’s Day is an important time to show someone how much they’re loved.

  • Celebrate your mom

    Celebrate your mom

    Celebrate, or memorialize your mom. If spending time with your mom isn’t possible, keep her memory alive somehow.  Whether that’s by dedicating a post to her on social media, watching her favorite movie or TV show, going through photos, cheering her with a toast (Baileys for my mom), or just doing something she loved to do.
