#SLEEPMATTERS Cruise for Moms, 2021
AMR's signature #SLEEPMATTERS Cruise is exclusively for moms and other adult female caregivers of children, adults, and spouses with extra needs. Wounded Warrior spouses and special educators are also welcome. Those caring for their elderly parents, and ALL adoptive/foster moms welcome.
The greatest factor that keeps parents from seeking the health respite they need is cost. Through private, foundation, and corporate donations, A Mother's Rest can eliminate that barrier for them and provide them with a respite experience they will never forget. Are you a church who would like to sponsor a specific mom or family? Maybe you're a small business owner who'd like some marketing visibility on board a ship of 5000+? Maybe you're a foundation, also committed to the proactive health of caregivers. Maybe you're a private philanthropist who believes, as we do, that taking care of these parents is the most powerful way to ensure great care for their disabled children and spouses. You're changing lives and offering hope for these most precious caregivers.
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE. A MOTHER'S REST IS A REGISTERED 501C3 CHARITY. 95% of your gift will support THIS event, 5% supports AMR general fund.
Give online with any major credit card through Paypal, or help us save on fees and send a check to AMR, PO Box 13,1 Monrovia, MD 21770
General Cruise Sponsorship, $500-$10,000. Sponsor logos will be prominently displayed on the back of our amazing beach tote bag & beach towel, as well as our home page, event page, and continuous social media marketing throughout the year.
Stateroom Grants, $1000-$25,000. AMR's purpose is to minimize or eliminate the financial barrier to respite for special needs parents. The vast majority of extra needs families live on one income. Respite such as this is often financially impossible for them living paycheck to paycheck. We are seeking financial support to enable parents & caregivers to participate in this extended, therapeutic trip. The average cost of an interior or ocean view lower deck stateroom is $800 for this cruise, not including airfare to Miami. This is a 4 night cruise, with 2 port stops. Our goal is to offer grants of $750 to (20) moms/caregivers for this 2019 sailing. Imagine the blessing your financial gift can be! Nothing would feel better than to be able to advertise that we have secured funding for ALL of these parents!
T-Shirts, Tote Bags, Beach Towels & Luggage tags, $7500. Funds to offer AMR #SLEEPMATTERS t-shirts, tote bags, beach towels, coffee mugs, luggage tags, and other gift items to each of our traveling caregivers.
Massages, $100-$4000. Offer $100 grants to one or more moms to have an hour-long massage on board the Mariner of the Seas.
Shore Excursions, $100-4000. Offer $100 grants to caregivers to participate in their choice of shore excursions. This sailing has two ports of call.
