This Mother’s Day, the TTM team is excited to honor all of the wonderful parental figures in our lives. Motherhood can take many shapes and forms in life, and it’s not always in the ways we expect. Parental love can come from moms, but it can also come from aunts, sisters, grandparents, community leaders, dads, cousins, and so many others.
As we take time this Mother’s Day to honor the parental figures who mean the most to us, we’re reminded of why we do what we do here at TTM. Providing moms with the agency and care to dictate the course of their own lives - and their children’s lives - means providing access to means of freedom. That means safe workspaces, where they are paid fairly and treated with respect. It means healthcare for moms and their children, especially maternity care so they can bring their kids into the world as safely as possible.
While no one person can transform the entire planet overnight, we can all take small steps to make our world safer, happier, and more equitable for all parents. That’s why today we’d like to share some of our favorite brands and products for making the world a better place with our purchasing power. With gifts made sustainably and with portions of proceeds directed towards great causes, these are gifts the parental figures in your life will enjoy all season long - today and every day.

As our founder, Jane Mosbacher Morris, mentions in her book, coffee is such an easy way to make a difference with your dollars.

If the parents in your life are coffee lovers, nothing hits better than a gifted supply of delicious ethically sourced java. One of our favorite brands? The legendary Porto Rico Importing Co.
