Personal shopper: Mother knows best

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.
