WHY SINGLE MOMS?
We get asked this often: "Why the focus on single moms?" It's a valid question, and the answer lies very dear to our heart. We'll let Sean Brown, founder of Nashville Giving Tree, explain it:
"Statistically speaking more than 50% of us, at some point in our lives, have been raised by a single mom. I grew up with a single mom and know firsthand the financial hardship it is to just provide food, much less Christmas, for your children.
When I was 7 years old, my mother pulled me aside with tears in her eyes and told me she could not afford to do Christmas that year. On Christmas Eve, a total stranger gave my mother some money and told her to fix a great meal and buy us a present.
On Christmas morning, I woke up to presents under the tree and the smell of sausage balls cooking in the oven! It is still the single greatest memory of God loving me in a very tangible way.
So, why single moms? Because it's personal. And because the statistics are so high, we bet it is for you, too."
