Remember how you put off thinking about it last year and then you scrambled to figure something out last minute? Let's not let this year be another statistic.
Emily Kirwan and I are here to help. Emily works for Amani Ya Juu, a company that empowers African women to make and sell their goods at a fair price. Check them out here.
We want to give you a shot at winning some sweet goods for the best lady in your life; it's almost like winning a stuffed animal for your date at the county fair. Almost.
Winner gets to pick something from this page on the Amani site, as well as a personalized card made by yours truly. That's what moms want, right? Someone else's kid to make the card?
To win these jewels, you can either:
1. Tell a sweet or funny little story about your mama. Or perhaps describe her lovable quirks. Write it in the comments or Tweet/Instagram it to @beckycmurphy
2. Post a photo of your mom (with or without you, vintage or recent). Use the hashtag, #ICalledMyMomToday. Or, again, Tweet/Instagram it to @beckycmurphy. We'll find you!
Do so by 11:00 AM Sunday, May 5. We'll randomly pick the winner at that time.
