You guys! I’m so excited about this!

For ages I’ve wanted to create something with some of our favorite messages – to share with moms far and wide – as a visual reminder that what we do daily is so vital.

And this year I got brave. I asked a friend if she’d design one of our favorite messages onto 2 of the items that hundreds of you requested – a staple in any mom’s life:

The basic T-Shirt and the Coffee Mug!

Remember a couple weeks ago when I posted this picture on Instagram? And so many of you asked where you could get one?


Well now I am THRILLED to be able to offer these to all of you in time for Mother’s Day!!

(Just click on the images below to order one for you, your mom, your best friend, and that exhausted mama in your life).

And don’t EVEN get me started on the T-Shirt version – Oh. My. Heart. (Also, how appropriate is it that the model is wearing her “messy mom bun”, eh?)


I Save Lives T Shirt by Lisa-Jo Baker for Mother's Day

Now one of these days I’ll figure out how to create, advertise, and ship these babies by myself and be able to offer them at an even lower price, but for now my wee little Zazzle store handles ALL the behind-the-scenes and makes life SO much easier for me.

And a percentage of every sale will go to our Serve South Africa project!

So, in short, every time you reach for that cuppa or put on that T-Shirt you get to remind yourself that what you do is heroic because you save lives daily. AND a mom in South Africa gets school supplies, meals and cooking fuel for her kids. WIN-WIN!

And the most fun is that you can customize each item – choosing a different style of mug or shirt. For example, do you spend hours at a time in the carpool, the commuter lane, waiting at baseball games for your kids?

Then – voila – what you need is the Travel Mug! (Just check out the Zazzle side bar for all the suggested custom options).

Gah, these make me so, so happy.

And I’m not just saying that. They are SO pretty and every time I reach for mine it makes me smile. I’ve started competing with my daughter for it because she thinks it’s so pretty too. Time to order a few more I guess.

Plus, all mugs are currently 40% off at Zazzle and I have no idea how long that will last. But in the meantime, I’m stocking up!

Because what mom doesn’t need the reminder that she is mighty because she mothers? Spread the word to the women in your lives – encourage them with daily, tangible proof that what they do matters. That they are braver than they think. And that we are all in this together.
