Impress Your Mom This Mother's Day!

by Debbie Atwood

Turn to a Maine nonprofit for a memorable Mother’s Day gift or activity.

Enjoy the beauty of Maine

Pack the picnic basket and head out on a trail maintained by one of the amazing land trusts throughout Maine or take Mom to Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, where admission is free on Mother’s Day (Sunday). These outdoor options are especially good if kids or grandchildren will be “helping” you celebrate.

Back in time

Mom may enjoy one of Maine’s incredible museums or historical societies. Make a day of it and find one that she’s never had the chance to visit.

If you can’t be together

If your mom isn’t nearby, or you just can’t get together this weekend, find something unique at a gift shop of your local museum, historical society, or nature center to send.  Memberships and tickets to concert or plays at one of Maine’s amazing theaters are never the wrong size. You’ll please your mom, support essential community organizations, and feel the glow of generosity (plus maybe get invited along), so actually these gifts give thrice!

Make a nonprofit part of your Mother’s Day celebration this year and let us know how your day goes!!
