2016 Mother's Day Campaign

Give a gift that lasts a lifetime!

Children are made readers on the laps of their parents. – Emilie Buchwald

Many of us learned our first lessons on our mother’s lap, sharing books and learning how to navigate the world around us through stories. Among so many special childhood moments, cuddling up with a book is a beloved routine cherished by parent and child alike.

This Mother’s Day, honor a mother in your life by giving that same special ritual of bonding over books to another mother and child in need. In doing so, you will change both their lives for the better – bringing a family closer, instilling a love of reading and learning, and laying a foundation for a child’s school and future success.

Make a gift of high-quality, multilingual children's books to Tandem™ in honor of a mother you love and admire, and we will send her a special message notifying her of your gift. Choose the gift amount that is most meaningful to you. Whether you want to honor one mom or several - you’ll be giving a Bay Area family a gift full of joy and opportunity that will last a lifetime.

How it Works:

  1. Choose your gift amount and click the button to donate.
  2. Enter your information to make your donation. You will see an option to enter information for your dedication within the donation widget. You may choose to enter all your dedication information here, or...
  3. Check your inbox for our donation receipt! You'll find a link to fill out a form for each mother you honor with a donation. Please note: it will take up to 10 minutes to receive your receipt to your email inbox. 
  4. We'll send your honored mom(s) a card -- e-card or handwritten depending on donation level -- notifying her of your generous gift!
