Mother’s Day is an opportunity to express your fondness and gratitude for the woman who brought you into this world (or, to the woman who’s taken to the role admirably). Mother’s Day is set to be a little bit different this year, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to express those feelings you’ve been carrying around, and to really make the occasion a memorable one.

Make a Charitable Donation
If you really want to do some good in the world, then you might make a charitable donation on behalf of your mother. There are plenty of worthy causes out there; you might pick one that’s particularly close to your mum’s heart. On the other hand, you might make a donation to GiveWell, or a similar organisation, who’ll pick out the most
