Show Mom You Were Really Listening This Mother's Day With a Gift That Gives BackMyInchofTheEarth.com Helps People Capture Life's Meaningful Places, Share Stories and Create Memorials, All While Supporting Global Causes and Nonprofit Organizations (May 04, 2012)
MADISON HEIGHTS, MI -- (Marketwire) -- 05/04/12 -- Mother's Day is the one time of year when children of all ages honor their mothers and other significant women in their lives; the ones who show them how to love and enjoy life, and who teach the importance of sharing, giving back, doing good deeds and helping others. This Mother's Day, MyInchofTheEarth.com invites people to show their mothers that they were really listening by giving a gift that gives back in a variety of ways.
At MyInchofTheEarth.com, anyone can claim a virtual piece of the earth or ocean that has significant meaning to them and the women in their lives. Using stories and images, they can share why the location is important to them. The pictures and memories are preserved on the MyInchofTheEarth.com map, creating an interactive, global quilt of fun and fond memories for the world to share. The gift is affordable -- inches can be claimed for $1 a month per inch (paid annually) -- and proceeds support one of several causes or organizations, including The Pink Fund, which provides short-term financial aid to individuals who are in active treatment for and recovery from breast cancer. Those claiming the inches can print and give a personalized GoodDEED, with a special design choice just in time for Mother's Day.
"Every memory is associated with a place," said Michele Favoretto, president of TerraYebo and creator of MyInchofTheEarth.com. "Remember the park where mom took you to play? Remember where grandma took you for ice cream? Remember the long walks on the beach talking and collecting seashells? Or any crazy family story that makes you laugh no matter how often it's told? Now, you can claim these places; preserve and share the memories; and give a personalized gift while supporting organizations that are changing the world; a gift that is fun for you and good for everyone."
