This Mother's Day give a mom in need something worth celebrating: a strong start for her child
You can count on Carter's to help kids, because Carter's believes that childhood should be a celebration. Carter's looks for opportunities to nurture and protect children and to build communities in which children can thrive, focusing on those needs where our strengths and resources are best able to bring about meaningful and positive change. Whether it's providing clean and comfortable clothing, sending volunteers into classrooms, or empowering children to help other children in need, Carter's works to make children's lives better so that they can be free to do what they do best — be kids.
In celebration of Mother's Day, Carter's and Oshkosh B'Gosh support Save the Children's early childhood education program — Early Steps to School Success — which gives U.S. moms the support they need to help their children thrive, right from the start.
From April 17th through May 10th, donate to Save the Children's early childhood education program, Early Steps to School Success, in Carter's and OshKosh B'Gosh retail stores or online at carters.com. The Carter's Charitable Foundation will provide a match for the first $50,000 raised.
Save the Children's Early Steps to School Success program lays a critical foundation of language and literacy skills for children from birth to age 5, so they can enter school ready to succeed. Through home visits, book exchanges, parenting groups, and an emphasis on transition to school, Early Steps staff helps children with language, social and emotional development, and equips parents and caregivers with the skills to successfully support children's growth.

Save the Children works to break the cycle of poverty and improve the lives of children by ensuring they have the resources they need — access to a quality education, healthy foods and opportunities to grow and develop in a nurturing environment. When disasters like hurricanes and wildfires strike, Save the Children is among the first on the ground ensuring the needs of children are being met.
Save the Children's early childhood education, literacy, physical activity and nutrition, and emergency response programs reached more than 240,000 children and families in the United States last year alone. For more information, visit www.savethechildren.org/usa.
