Happy Mother's Day!
In honor of moms everywhere, we bring you the powerful story of a resilient American mom on a mission for her children, plus the results of our groundbreaking survey revealing the hopes and fears of moms just like you.
You're invited to be inspired and informed, then share with all the special moms in your life today!
What Keeps America's Moms Up at Night?
This Mother's Day, consider the hopes and fears of today's American mothers.
The modern mom is resilient and optimistic, but deeply concerned about the complexities of modern life and the challenges of raising her children, according to our survey of more than 1,000 mothers across the U.S. An overwhelming number believe that education is the single most important issue for our leaders, communities and families to address. We couldn't agree more!
Full results from The Shriver Report Snapshot: Insight into the Resilient American Mother,* a collaboration between Save the Children teamed with Shriver Media, are available here.
How do you feel about motherhood in America today?
Honor a Mom
America's children can realize the dreams of their mothers, with your help. Honor a mom today by giving the gift of early childhood education to a U.S. child in need, making dreams come true.
Speak Up for Moms
Every mother wants to give her child the best education possible. Help her put an end to educational inequities - ask Congress to invest in early childhood education today.

"We can't underestimate the power of a mother. As a mom myself, I want to continue to help support mothers, because if we support the moms, then we help to create stronger families, communities and our country."
– Carolyn Miles, President and CEO of Save the Children
"As a mother of four and an advocate for women's empowerment, I am thrilled to partner with Save the Children and the Save the Children Action Network to share this Snapshot on the modern American mom."
