The Cause-Conscious Mother’s Day Gift Guide

If you’re looking for a unique Mother’s Day gift, look no further than IJM Canada’s faithful supporters.
In the last year, we’ve interviewed over a dozen of justice champions who went above and beyond to raise money for the cause. Among them are a handful of creative and courageous women who have dedicated their craft to protecting the poor from violence.
We’ve gathered their stories to inspire you to action this Mother’s Day season.
