Here at Indiegogo, we love Mother’s Day. The hard work of being a mother often goes unnoticed, and we relish the chance to honor the world’s moms for the tireless work they put in. In a normal year, this is barely enough. But this year, moms around the world deserve extra recognition for the herculean efforts they’ve put in during the pandemic to care for their families and communities.
In an effort to support the campaigns that help moms thrive, we picked our favorite mom-related campaigns (and one bonus campaign too! If you want to see these campaigns go to market and make them a reality, show your support by backing these campaigns and helping their visions come to life.
Here are our favorite mom-related campaigns of the year:
Letters to My Brown Mother is about the struggles with mental health in the South Asian diaspora. The book details experiences of everyday South Asian immigrants and children of immigrants.
