Moms have been working double-time lately—with an extra dose of anxiety!
Some moms are juggling their full-time careers from home while also keeping their kids busy at home. Others are on the front lines of the pandemic, working in healthcare and other essential roles in the community. All moms are doing their best to lead their families through unprecedented uncertainty.

Make Life Easier on Mom
Take a few things off mom’s to-do list by doing all the chores (without being asked!) yourself. Or let the professionals handle the laundry, disinfecting the house, or shopping for fresh produce. This gift would be especially thoughtful for moms who are essential workers and could use a little extra peace of mind.
