For Mothers Day: The Gift that Keeps on Giving
May 8, 2007
For many mothers (and lots of others), coffee is what gets them up and going in the morning. Now coffee can also jumpstart policies and programs that support moms and their families. And that coffee is available just in time for Mother’s Day.
MomsRising, the year-old online grassroots organization that champions family-friendly issues like paid leave, expanding afterschool programs, educational television and health care coverage for all children, has teamed up with Farley’s Coffee to offer a special MomsRising blend in regular and decaf. Priced at just $14.99 a pound and available for purchase online, the sales of this special blend help support MomsRising’s work. Farley’s Coffee, Inc. is an independent, minority-run small business.
MomsRising blend comes in regular and decaf and can be purchased by the pound, with or without a copy of The Motherhood Manifesto, a book by MomsRising co-founders Joan Blades and Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner.

Launched just last May, MomsRising now has more than 90,000 members who are working together for common sense solutions to the profound challenges facing American families today. The dynamic and fast-growing new organization is working for paid family leave, flexible work options, excellent childcare and healthcare for all children, and to stop the wage and hiring biases that penalize so many mothers.
MomsRising is building a massive grassroots online resource to put motherhood and family issues on the nation’s radar screen, and to provide grassroots political capital to advance leaders and policies that support families. More information is available at www.momsrising.org
