Give to Mom, While Giving Back : The Edna Adan Print

It’s Sunday evening and I am working on Sunday Supper. I would like to make this more of a tradition for our little family. However, this will not be the week we all sit down together. My husband is busy recaulking our bathroom and the girls are being treated to a rare Redbox movie (Angelina Ballerina Mousling Mysteries, if you were wondering.)

So I am getting in some needed computer time. Usually I have the week planned out by now but due to my own dithering and Sunday laziness, I am just now finalizing appointments and planning our week. It’s hard to believe that it will be May in just a few short days. With it comes the end of school, and of course Mother’s Day. Since we are saving for a vacation this summer, my wish for Mother’s Day is to spend time in bed reading, without tiny munchkins staring at me.

Our own mothers are being sent little gifts and I hope to treat my girlfriends to a day at Les Bourgeois thanks to an AddSheet coupon I scored.

If you are still looking, I have the perfect gift…
The beautiful print at the top of this post.

Not only is it a lovely sentiment and picture, half of all proceeds will be donated to the Edna Adan University Hospital.

About Enda Adan:

“The health of the people of Somaliland is among the worst in Africa, with one of the highest Maternal and Infant Mortality rates in the world. Every year, one baby in eight dies in infancy while nearly 4000 Somali women die in childbirth. This tragedy can be attributed in large part to the long civil war which brought about the death or departure of nearly all of the country’s trained health care professionals.” The good news is that this hospital is working to change these statistics and improve maternal health. From educating midwives and fighting female genital mutilation, the Edna Adan University Hospital is making big changes for the people of Somaliland.

These limited edition Mother’s Day prints are for sale on Storenvy (link above.) Prints are $30 with free US shipping. They will ship in 3-5 business days of order. To ensure delivery by Mother’s Day, order by May 3rd.
