While Mother's Day is a special celebration for many of us, for other's it is a reminder of the painful loss in their life. The following events aim to support motherless children.
Trees for Mum was founded in 2002 by two women who had recently lost their mother's and wanted a way to honour them on Mother's Day. Each year, Trees for Mum organises tree planting events in Sydney, Brisbane and across Australia.
This year, George Palmer Park (corner Blackstone Road and Sealy Street, Silkstone) will host the official event. It is free to attend but bookings are essential and can be made through the MyIpswich website. If you miss registration or are unable to get there, the Trees for Mum website can help you organise your own.
Motherless Daughter's Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that supports girls and woman whose mother's have died. This year, they will host a Motherless Daughters High Tea on 28 April, a couple of weeks before Mother's Day. This event will give motherless daughter's an opportunity to mourn and celebrate their mother's with like-minded people.
The Motherless Daughter's High Tea will take place 28 April from 12:00pm at Mantra Richmont - Kennigo Social House (28 Kennigo Street, Spring Hill). Tickets are $49, which includes food and champagne.
I never knew these existed. Although I am fortunate to still have my Mum, there comes a day when I will be visiting these organisations as well. Great article and thanks for letting us all know about these organisations. Susan
