Celebrating Wonderful Women
Our deadline for card deliveries has now passed. While we are still accepting donations to send Mother's Day cards on your behalf, please be aware that we cannot guarantee that your cards will arrive in time for Mother's Day this year.
Celebrate your loved ones this Mother's Day
YWCA Edmonton and Edmonton-based designer Justine Ma have teamed up for Mother’s Day again for 2021. This year’s card is a unique collaboration piece that is only available through YWCA Edmonton.
Honour your mother or another special woman in your life by making a donation in her name to YWCA Edmonton. We will mail your recipient this year’s limited edition card just in time for Mother’s Day. In order to ensure timely delivery, please have your orders in by Monday, May 3.
Proceeds from these card sales support YWCA Edmonton’s ongoing mission to help women, girls and families in the capital region. Women have been disproportionately affected by the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and as we look towards recovery efforts, it is critical that women and gender-diverse people are represented. Your generous support allows us to continue our mission of advocating for equity through a woman’s perspective, educating, empowering and inspiring those we serve.
YWCA Edmonton is the province’s oldest and largest women’s organization, operating since 1907. To this day, we remain a community leader in advocacy, counselling services, disability services, sexual health and wellness services, youth programming, and outdoor experiences. Thank you for helping build a stronger, healthier community that is equitable for all.
