CatholicMom Day of Giving
Over 19 years ago, when Lisa Hendey founded CatholicMom.com as a young mom who simply loved her family and loved her faith, she could not have imagined the enormous blessing CatholicMom would grow to become for so many. Through Lisa’s dedication, hard work, and generosity, and the ensuing work and generosity of hundreds of contributors here, CatholicMom has grown into an online family that serves the needs of so many in so many ways — thousands of moms at home, moms in the workplace, moms of kids with special needs, single moms, grandmothers, catechists in the classroom, and even dads visit CatholicMom and use our free resources every day.
Changes and Growth
A little over two years ago, CatholicMom was acquired by Holy Cross Family Ministries, and this change has brought new opportunities for growth and expansion of the services we provide. From daily blog posts and personal prayer support, from Sunday Gospel Activities to weekly CatholicMom Hangouts, CatholicMom books, and our popular Catholic Momcast — everything we do is with you in mind. It is a privilege and a joy to support and encourage our listeners and readers in the important work they do in the hearts of their homes.
Catholic Mom Day of Giving
Tomorrow, October 24, we will be hosting our second annual CatholicMom Day of Giving, asking subscribers and friends of CatholicMom.com to support the vitally important, free resources we offer. 100% of proceeds from this special one-day event will go directly to our critical programs. And there will be fun too! All donors will be entered into a giveaway to win exciting prizes, including CatholicMom books from Holy Cross Family Ministries, Ave Maria Press, and Ascension. More information about the giveaways and our sponsors will be shared throughout the day on October 24, at CatholicMom.com and through our social media channels.
To reach our goal of raising $5,000 for our CatholicMom Day of Giving, we will need your word of mouth, prayer support, and financial support. I hope that you will consider sharing our campaign with your friends and family, and linking to it on social media. Even now, before our official CatholicMom Giving Day starts, you can share our donate page with friends and family and participate in this event yourself.
Thank you for being a part of the CatholicMom community. Your presence and participation are truly a gift to us and you are a vitally important part of all we do. We here at CatholicMom are keeping you in prayer as we continue our work in service to God and families.
God bless you, and thank you for your support!
