Here are some ways to celebrate your favorite Mom, Grammie, Sis, Aunt, cousin, niece or daughter on her special day, with real love but virtual togetherness.
Instead of a real bouquet of flowers, give her a lifetime supply, via a gift in her name to your favorite park.
Each year in Central Park, hundreds of thousands of tulips and daffodils bloom. Donate next year’s plantings in her honor.
With a tax-deductible donation of $50 ($1 per bulb), the Conservancy will plant your tulips or daffodils in Central Park, and she gets a mailed certificate or e-card notifying her of your gift.
Wherever you see tulips or daffodils in Central Park, you and she will know that yours and hers are among them.
Or contact 212.310.6675 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also donate to other NYC parks, which we enjoy year-round.
The High Line offers a monthly membership, so you can donate for the Mother’s Day month of May, or for the month of her birthday.
