The flowers and financial literacy materials that you help us send to battered women's shelters each Mother's Day DO make a difference! 

“Gifts of this kind raise the spirits of women who are trying to move forward towards a second chance at a better life.” 
- Beth Burns, Director, Chelsea House, Tallahassee, FL

“Our clients know that someone was thinking of them and sending their best wishes and for that moment they feel special and cared for – something that hasn’t always happened in their lives!”
- Laura, Sojourner Project, Minnetonka, MN

“I wish you could have been here to see the pure joy on the faces of the ladies in our Family Violence Center when they received the long stemmed roses that you sent them for Mother’s Day. At a time in their lives when there is not much to smile about, their eyes twinkled and they broke into beautiful smiles as they received the roses…At a time in their lives when they are stressed about many things, and on a day that for many is bittersweet, these ladies are reassured that somebody cares about them. Just – them. Somebody thinks they are worthy to be pampered and somebody gives them gifts. That somebody is you – Jewish Women International.”
- Suzanne Durham, Family Violence Center, Birmingham, AL

“Every year between 150-200 women spend Mother’s Day with us. Every year, their Mother’s Day is special and beautiful because of your flowers and support. Thank you for believing in our families.”
- DeAndre Esteen, The Shade Tree, Las Vegas, NV

“The flowers are breathtaking and our ladies couldn’t have been happier when we announced that they were for all of them. We graciously thank you for keeping us in your thoughts! Bless you all!”
- Hope Center for Women, Lexington, KY

“The flowers bring color into our home. They make the women feel so special and appreciated. For some women, they have never received flowers so this is very special to them.”
- Safe Embrace, Sparks, NV

“It is amazing what something as simple as a flower can do to the expression on a woman’s face.”
- Kathleen Higgins, Executive Director, Rainbow House, Chicago, IL

“This was such a beautiful and generous gift, you can't believe how this Mother's Day program improves women’s outlook on life. They just beam with those beautiful nail colors.”
- Ida Petkus, Domestic Violence Advocacy Center, Medford, NJ

“I cannot tell you how much this means to the ladies when they receive the flowers for Mother's Day. It is such a difficult time for the ladies to be in a shelter and especially during Mother's Day. All too often women make sacrifices for their children; to stay or to leave. We always inform the ladies where the flowers come from and the enormous amount of gratitude is overwhelming. For them to know there are others who recognize the challenges they face and to lift them up in spirit, we are thankful.”
- Pam Gillenwater, Resolve Family Abuse Program Director, Charleston YWCA, Charleston, WV

“We are very blessed and honored to receive your generous gifts for the women who stay here at our shelter. Mother's Day can be a very lonely time when you're parenting alone. We appreciate Jewish Women International for making their Mother's Day feel special and also your continued support over the years.”
- Karen Newman, Women of Nations, St. Paul, MN
