How it works

When you select your gift choose from one of our seven occasion cards, whether it be a Birthday, Anniversary or just a blank card so that you can write your own message.  We will then send you your chosen card along with a keepsake bookmark which can be given to the recipient and tells them all about the ethical gift that you have bought in their name.

By giving an ethical gift you will be supporting the work of Mothers’ Union in over 80 countries of the world, including the UK. Mothers’ Union works through a grassroots membership of over 4 million people providing support to families and communities. We don’t simply give handouts: through our work we empower people by providing the training and encouragement they need to create a better life for themselves and their families. We inspire our beneficiaries by giving them the opportunity to learn to read and write, the knowledge to grow fruit and vegetables, the ability to speak out on issues of social injustice, and the confidence to support each other and build a better life within their families and communities.  A gift, however small, can make a real difference. 

IMPORTANT: We ask that you order your gift at least 7 days before you need it.  If this is not possible please contact us and we will endeavour to get your gift out quickly.

Four easy steps to giving a Mothers' Union ethical gift

Step 1

View the 'Choose a Gift' page and select the card you wish to receive.  Add your gift to your shopping basket by clicking the 'Add to Basket' button. You can choose more than one gift and buy the same gift more than once. You can be assured that each gift represents the amazing work that Mothers' Union is doing with families throughout the world.

Step 2

You can then see the gifts you have added to your Shopping Basket on the 'View Basket' page. If you are happy with your gift selection then you can proceed to the Checkout page where you can enter your details into the order form. Please remember to tick the Gift Aid box if you are a UK tax payer. This will mean that your gift will be worth 25% more at no extra cost to you (see the Help section). After you have completed your order form you will then be taken to a secure page where you can enter your credit/debit card details to pay for your gifts and complete your order. 

Step 3

We will then send you your card and gift bookmark which has details of the gift you have bought.  You will also be sent a confirmation email. 

Step 4

You give the card to the recipient who can read about the lovely gift you have bought in their name and use the bookmark as a special keepsake.
