#GIFTOFREST Holiday campaign

October 9-December 24, 2017

When you donate for & share A Mother's Rest, you're directly impacting the health of thousands of extra needs parents across the country.  Your donations make our amazing respite retreats possible for these caregivers, as well as providing for the basic operating costs of our foundation.

Gift certificates, heirloom ornaments, coffee mugs and gifts, and sponsorship of our Raising Appalachia program are very personal, meaningful ways to show an extra needs parent you care about them! 

Sponsor A Thanksgiving Meal For Virginia's Special Needs Families

VIA our Raising Appalachia program.  Your tax deductible donation of $100 will provide a fully cooked turkey dinner from Honeybaked Ham, complete with dressing and dessert, for one rural Virginia family in need of blessings and fellowship this Thanksgiving.  Serves 10-12 people, and great for leftovers.   


GOAL: Ten families ($1000)


All funds and nominated eligible families must be recvd prior to November 15!   Meals will be delivered to the families individually.    NOMINATE A FAMILY ABOVE.
