This Mother's Day, you can honour yours and help someone else's when you scoop up Cause We Care merchandise at Aritzia and Blue Ruby.
The sale of Aritizia's super-trendy La Notte graphic tanks and tees ($25, $35), and Blue Ruby's handcrafted bracelets ($20-$75) will benefit single moms in need, through the Cause We Care Foundation. Proceeds will help to fund after-school and Spring Break programs throughout the Lower Mainland. They'll also support the YWCA Cause We Care House, which - when it opens in 2015 - will have a full-service public library, subsidized housing and program space for single mothers and their kids.
Also participating in the initiative are Vancouver-based retailer Army & Navy, which will hold a May 8 hamper drive, and West Side hair salon Halo, which will donate part proceeds from services May 10.
