Mother’s Day Facts You Didn’t Know

22 Apr

Mothers-Day-Gift-GuideMoms are the embodiment of eternal love and devotion. As inherently selfless creatures, you know that they deserve a day all to themselves, one that celebrates everything that they stand for. Mother’s Day annually observed in many countries around the world on the 2nd Sunday in May is a perfect day to celebrate your mother!

While mom is a good enough reason to celebrate Mother’s Day, there are a lot of things worth knowing about this happy spring holiday. This year, impress your mom with more than just a bouquet of flowers and a heartfelt Mother’s Day gift… tell her one of these interesting facts that she probably didn’t even know.

Mothering Sunday

While the modern  Mother’s Day didn’t evolve until years later in the beginning of the 20th century, the holiday has its roots in the Christian celebration of “Mothering Sunday.” In the UK and parts of Europe, Mothering Sunday fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent, where parishioners would return to their “mother” church.

First Mother’s Day Celebration

Since the dawn of time we have been thankful for our mothers, but it took persistent activists to really get the holiday on the nationally recognized level. After the death of her mother in 1908, Anna Jarvis, an activist and founder of Mother’s Day as we know her today, sought to host a celebration to thank all mothers for all they do. She held the first Mother’s Day celebration in a Methodist Church in West Virginia.

Why The Date Changes

After Jarvis successfully held her first Mother’s Day, she sought out to make it a national celebration. After years of lobbying, she finally got the attention of President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. He proclaimed that the second Sunday in May, no matter what the date, would belong to moms across the nation.

Misc Mother’s Day Facts

  • Anna Jarvis, the founder of the modern concept of Mother’s Day, remained unmarried and childless throughout her entire life.
  • According to National Retail Federation on average people spend $168.94 on gifts for Mother’s Day
  • Over 130 million Mother’s Day cards are exchanged annually making it the third-largest card-sending holiday in the U.S.
  • There are around 2 billion mothers in the world
  • Each second there are 4 babies born in the world

What is Passover?

Passover is a festival of freedom which commemorates the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt.

Jews all over the world celebrate Passover for seven days and, while the date varies from year to year, it’s always the same on the Jewish lunar calendar: the 15th day of Nissan, the first month of the Hebrew monthly calendar year, typically falling in mid-spring.

The main ritual of Passover is the Seder — a festive meal with family which occurs on the first night of the holiday. During the Seder a number of symbolic foods are served including wine, matzah bread, and other all kosher dishes.

 

GBO Launches Gifts Against Breast Cancer for NBCF

14 Apr

GiftBasketsOverseas.com joins National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. to raise money and awareness in the fight to prevent, treat, & cure breast cancer.

ARLINGTON, Mass., April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — GiftBasketsOverseas.com (GBO), the experts in international gift delivery, announced the launch of its Gifts Against Breast Cancer campaign, in cooperation with National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), for Mother’s Day. GBO has selected an exclusive line of Mother’s Day gifts for delivery in the USA, and marked them with NBCF’s pink ribbon. For every one of these gifts sold from April 8 – May 8, 2016, GiftBasketsOverseas.com will donate 10% of the gift’s retail price to NBCF for early breast cancer detection, education, research, and support services.

One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, but when found early, the five year survival rate is 98%. As such, education, prevention, and diagnostic services are the front lines in the battle against breast cancer. NBCF does its part with the National Mammography Program (NMP) – providing free diagnostic breast care services for underserved women; Beyond The Shock® (BTS) – a global, comprehensive online guide to breast cancer; and Early Detection Plan (EDP) – an interactive tool that helps women organize and remember their breast health action plan. NBCF also works with top scientists and hospitals around the world to find the cure.

“Our intention has always been to give back in a meaningful way, but an important question has been where to best focus our efforts,” says Dmitriy Peregudov, GBO’s Chief Gift Officer. “Beating breast cancer stands out as having major impact on women and their families globally, and NBCF has an outstanding record of service. We’re excited to work with them, and to provide customers the opportunity to make their Mother’s Day gifts doubly generous. We hope this campaign leads to more awareness, bigger donations, and an end to breast cancer.”

Customers will find a variety of gifts for Mother’s Day marked with the pink ribbon for delivery to the USA, including gourmet gift assortments, healthy fruit baskets, high-quality spa gifts and more. Additionally, even though 10% of the cost of selected gifts will be donated to NBCF, customers can still use their promotional codes for savings when placing orders. Customers can keep track of the campaign’s success via social media, as the GBO team will be updating Facebook and Twitter with breast cancer facts, Gifts Against Breast Cancer progress, and exclusive promotions for followers.

About National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.

Recognized as one of the leading breast cancer organizations in the world, NBCF’s mission is to help women now by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services. A recipient of Charity Navigator’s highest 4-star rating for 11 years, NBCF provides women Help for Today…Hope for Tomorrow® through its National Mammography Program, Beyond The Shock®, Early Detection Plan, and breast cancer research programs.
