Please note: MCCL's 2020 Mother's Day Project will be significantly altered because of the coronavirus outbreak. We will not offer flowers, but will still make available a variety of "Thanks Mom for Life" buttons that churches and chapters may order. In addition, our 2020 Mother's Day ad is still available to run in your church bulletin or local publication. Contact MCCL for more information about these options. Our regular Mother's Day Project will return in 2021.
Mother's Day is a time to celebrate and honor mothers. Besides the many other reasons to thank them, it is important to thank mothers for the most precious gift they could ever give their child—life.
Mother's Day Project
MCCL's Mother's Day Project is an annual event to honor mothers with flowers and raise funds for pro-life activities. MCCL offers a variety of options that your group, chapter, or church can choose for your fundraiser. These include orchid corsages, carnation corsages, African violet plants, single long-stem carnations, and "Thanks Mom for Life" buttons. Proceeds can be sent to MCCL or used for your own local MCCL chapter or group.
Order forms are sent to chapters in March or early April; they will also be make available online or by contacting MCCL. The deadline for placing orders is in mid-April. Contact MCCL to learn more about the Mother's Day Project.
'Thanks Mom for Life' Buttons
MCCL's "Thanks Mom for Life" buttons can be acquired as part of the Mother's Day Project or ordered separately. They can be given away at churches, festivals, fairs, and other events. MCCL typically offers a new design each year (see top of page for a recent design).
Mother's Day Ads
MCCL creates a new Mother's Day print ad each year (see top of page for the 2020 ad). These ads salute mothers for the gift of life and for all that they do for their children. They are available in both color and black and white and can be placed in church bulletins or newsletters and local newspapers. Contact MCCL if you would like to run the MCCL Mother's Day ad.
“We distributed corsages with the 'Thanks Mom for Life' buttons to 33 churches in our area and received enough donations to fund our major pro-life educational projects for the coming year. Thank you for the hard work you put into this project—it's a wonderful message!”
