One in a Million!

From the desk of Leah Calnan...

Mother's Day is just around the corner (Sunday 9th May) and what better way to spoil your mum than getting her an unusual gift. Stuck for ideas? Well we have a couple to help you out.

We have found a fabulous website called Red Balloon that offer all sorts of ‘experiences’. Anything from a gourmet cooking class, pedicure, massage and hot ballooning across the Yarra Valley to a V8 race car ride!

Perhaps your mum lives interstate (and is not so much into race car rides)? Why not send her something a bit different than the regular bunch of flowers. Why not send her a bouquet of chocolates!!! Edible Blooms is a great online company that send creative edible bouquets all across Australia. We at Metro have used them many a time and just love the idea.

Are you are planning a family get together and are stuck for an idea of what to do? We have found just the thing to get you all together for a day of laughs and fundraising for a great cause. The ‘Mothers Day Classic’ is a national fun run and events will be held in all capital cities on Mothers day including Melbourne to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research. You can run or walk, groups are welcomed and you can even dress up if you like. To date the ‘Mother's Day Classic’ has raised $5.7 million towards breast cancer research.

Whatever it is that you and your family do, we all hope you enjoy the day. “A mother holds her children's hands for a while...their hearts forever” (Author Unknown).
