Carolyn Thomas and Rhondda Morrison for Mothers Day

It comes as no surprise that mothers are the women most often honoured on the Minerva Tribute Tree. Throughout our lives, they inspire us to grow, to lead and to care about the world around us. At Minerva, we are fortunate to be surrounded by many incredible mothers through our extended Minerva family who are a constant source of inspiration, wisdom and support. And to you all, we say thank you.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Here are some of the ways our donors have honoured their mothers on this year’s Tribute Tree:
