Do You Pretend To Like Your Mother's Day Gifts?

New Study: Almost One in Three Moms Confess:
“I Often Pretend to Like Mother’s Day Gifts”

World Vision’s Gift Catalog Meaningful Gifts - Different Way to Honor Mom 
SEATTLE, WA (May 09, 2012) – With more than $16.3 billion expected to be spent on Mother’s Day* this year, a new study reveals almost one third of moms in America (31 percent) say they often pretend to like the Mother’s Day gifts they typically receive from family. According to the study commissioned by international Christian charity World Vision, nearly 2 in 3 (64 percent) say they would prefer to receive a meaningful gift that would help someone else instead of a traditional Mother’s Day gift such as flowers or a card. The survey also says most adults would like to honor mom by giving something that would empower other mothers.

World Vision’s 2012 Spring/Summer Gift Catalog is full of meaningful gifts. “This survey shows what moms really want,” says Traci Coker, World Vision-US Gift Catalog Senior Director. “With all the money spent on Mother’s Day gifts we want those gifts to have impact.”

Last year alone, the World Vision U.S. Gift Catalog raised more than $32 million providing help to more than 800,000 worldwide. This year’s goal: $34 million. World Vision launched the Gift Catalog in 1996. Since then it’s raised over $162 million dollars. A goat ($75) is World Vision’s number one seller but there are more than 100 gifts (many under $35) to choose from.
