7 Cause-Related Mother's Day Gift Ideas

I'm constantly searching for cause-related products. Hold on, let me rephrase that. I'm constantly searching for fashionable cause-related products. There. Better.

The idea of having to buy things for the sole purpose of scratching a retail itch doesn't fancy me anymore. Don't get me wrong. I mean, I still buy products which don't have a cause attached to them. But I try as much as I can to purchase products that I know will benefit others.

Why? For one, with all that's been going on around the world, I can't help but be more socially responsible. And two, I feel less guilty about spending when I buy cause-related products.

Since Mother's Day is coming up soon, I've compiled a couple of the cause-related products that I'm yearning for these days.

Dusty Red Kikoy Scarf by Edun 

Edun is a clothing line started by U2's frontman Bono and his wife Ali Hewson. Edun has partnered with fashion giant LVMH to help cotton farmers in Northern Uganda start their own businesses. A percentage of their products are produced in Africa. This scarf below was worn by Bono in an LV ad. 

Hoping that the model's included

Tous (Red) Special Edition Bracelet 

I'm a supporter of RED's fight to eradicate HIV/AIDS by 2015. A percentage of this 18k gold plated bracelet by the Spanish jewelry brand Tous will be donated to that cause. 

OmniPeace Ladies Tee 

Notice the palm? That's right! It is the map of Africa. The number 2025 printed on the lower part is actually the target year of the company founded by Mary Fanaro to end extreme poverty in Africa  .  OmniPeace donates a percentage of its profits to help end violence against women and children in Africa as well.

Miss J Bay by Reef 

These Reef pair is both cause-related and eco-friendly. One percent of the sales will go to environmental and humanitarian groups.  One of the materials used is a low environmental impact leather called ISA-L.I.T.E.

Tory Burch Robinson Zip Coin Case in Blood Orange 

Tory Burch is supporting the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research through the sales of this Robinson Zip Coin Case in Blood Orange. Twenty percent of the proceeds until the end of April (Parkinson’s Awareness Month) will go to the said foundation. There are three other orange Tory Burch-MJFF products to choose from. This is my pick.

Livestrong Dri-Fit Legend Tee 

I bought one like this years ago. Livestrong helps out Cancer survivor programs and services by donating 100% of the product's proceeds after expenses.  

Toms Classic 102 in Tortoise, White, Light Blue 

Toms who is originally known for their shoes with a cause has a new line of eyewear. The proceeds will help a visually-impaired person to get medical treatment, prescription glasses, or a sight-saving surgery. Nice! With that kind of concept, I'll be more than willing to overlook the fact that these sunnies are a copy of the classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer.   

But wait! There's more!

So that's what those stripes are for.  

So, this Mother's Day, why not make two people happy? Your mom and the person you'll be helping out.

In the words of Dr. Seuss, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It's not."
