Hey CLE, having a great week? While we just celebrated the Easter holiday and happy Earth Day to ya, I am already thinking about the next celebration; Mother’s Day! While I’ve always loved the holiday, being an expectant Mom this year is even more special.
This year while I was at Alt Summit I had the pleasure of hearing Christy Turlington Burns super model and founder of Every Mother Counts and Mariam Naficy of Minted give a luncheon keynote talk. They spoke about the importance of the organization which helps to decrease maternal mortality across the world. I mean I don’t know if it was all the hormones I have rushing through my blood or actually how stunning their film was, but it for sure brought tears to my eyes.
You might ask “why I am telling you about this?” Well, have you ever shopped the indie art prints available on Minted.com? I have a few of them integrated into my local art collection and I just love how they come framed and ready to hang. Plus, you can personalize most prints as gifts for friends, babies and yep…you guessed it MOM’S!
What better holiday to celebrate all Mom’s and to make an impact worldwide than shopping on Minted.com for the gift of art for your Mom. For Mother’s Day 2014, Minted has pledged to donate 20% of all of their art sales to the Every Mother Counts organization, a wonderful partnership and promotion.
What I thought was pretty cool is that they have offered you an exclusive “I Heart Cleveland” donation code (HEARTCLEVELANDEMC) that we can use when we purchase our mom’s some cool artwork (now through 4/28) then, after the holiday we will receive a follow up that will include how much we actually donated through our purchases to Every Mother Counts.
If you use the code from the April 22nd to the 28th you will also receive a downloadable card to let your Mom’s know that a donation to Every Mother Counts was made in her name.
Minted is a great company that promotes independent artists. Every Mother Counts is a wonderful world-wide organization that supports the health of Mom’s. Clevelanders are a passionate group of engaged, creative, givers and doers and I just thought this might be a fun offering/post to share with everyone. Happy shopping everybody!
