Help Keep Mom Well This Mother's Day

Help Keep Mom Well This Mother's Day

(NewsUSA): As Mother's Day approaches, thoughts turn to flowers, chocolates and pastel greeting cards. But why not give Mom a gift that gives back?
Charitable gifts seem all the rage. Some mothers like their offspring to make Mother's Day donations to worthwhile causes. For other moms, nothing beats spending the day with their children and family.
Mother-loving families can also buy gifts from companies that donate part of their proceeds to charity. Many products now benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which promises to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
Breast cancer affects many American families -; women living in North America develop breast cancer more often than anyplace else in the world. Each woman -; each mother -; has a one in 33 chance that breast cancer will cause her death.
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Web site, www.komen.org, lists products whose sales will help fund breast cancer research. Many prove typical Mother's Day gifts, like scarves and jewelry. Other products appeal to more unique-minded mothers.
Some products benefiting Susan G. Komen don't just keep moms safe from breast cancer, they just plain help keep moms safe.
The Consumer Electrics Show awarded one available product, the Viper Responder LE, 2-Way Vehicle Security & Remote Start, its 2008 Best of Innovations Award for cutting-edge technology like the hidden GhostLight LEDs located on the remote.
The two-way remote, which can be fitted to most cars, alerts mothers to attempted car break-ins from up to 2,000 feet away.
The system can also keep mothers driving happy. Without entering their car, mothers can set their cabin temperature to warm up in the winter or cool down in the summer. The remote can start vehicles with both automatic and manual transmissions.
For each special-edition pink Responder LE sold, its maker, Directed Electronics, will donate $13.39 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The company will donate a minimum of $25,000.
