Sure, flowers and candy are nice. But what about a meaningful gift that makes a real impact?

This Mother’s Day, honor all the ways your mom has made a difference in your life by making a difference in the lives of Virginia’s at-risk children.

Today there are more than 1,400 children of all ages in Virginia’s foster care system waiting to be adopted. Children who want someone to tuck them in at night. Children who need someone to help them with their homework. Children who deserve someone to champion their hopes and dreams. Just like your mom did — and still does — for you.

Help CHS fulfill our mission to find all Virginia children the safe, permanent family they deserve by making a Mother’s Day donation.

When you make a donation of $15 or more in honor of your mother, we will mail her a Mother’s Day card and special note acknowledging the honorary gift you’ve made. To view the card, click on the PDF on the previous page under this listing.

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate your mother than by helping a child find someone to call “Mommy.” Can you?

Click the DONATE button at the left of this screen to make an online contribution, or mail a check to CHS at 4200 Fitzhugh Avenue, Richmond, VA 23230. Please include “Mother’s Day” and your mother’s name AND her mailing address in the online notes field or enclosed with your check.

We must receive your donation by Tuesday, May 3, to ensure proper time to process your donation and mail the card to your mother so she receives it in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 8. After May 3, we cannot guarantee the card will arrive by May 8.

Wishing a happy Mother’s Day to every kind of MOM there is: birth mom, adoptive mom, foster mom, stepmom, grandmom, like-a-mom, soon-to-be mom, mom-in-law — ALL moms!
