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 mother 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 1,300 children of all ages in Virginia’s foster care system waiting to be adopted. Children who need someone to tuck them in at night. Children who want someone to help them with their homework. Children who deserve someone to champion their hopes and dreams. Just like your mom did 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 your donation in honor of your mother, we will mail her a special note at the address you provide acknowledging the honorary gift you’ve made. You can also immediately download a special certificate to print out or email to your mom to let her know you’ve made a gift in her honor. Choose from a certificate for an individual or a group. Just click on VIEW PDF on this page and choose which certificate you want to use — it is a 2-page file.

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 here  or at left on the DONATE button 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 mailing address in the online notes field or enclosed with your check.

Happy Mother’s Day!
