Lock Your Mom 2023 is Open!Find out Why
Maybe one day we will have an Oscars for single moms…
But till then, here’s how we try and make Lock Your Mom bigger and better every year…
Here’s how it works:
We will, as always (since 2015), invite you to nominate a single mom you know and we will send her a heartlock with a “!” engraved on it for the “!” of motherhood.
This is our way of thanking single moms for all they do, and this thank you is especially poignant when children are too small to say thank you or “Happy Mother’s Day” themselves, which is coincidentally the most intense time of parenting.
This is not a contest, and we send them on a first come, first serve basis. Once they are gone, they’re gone, so….
2023 is going to be big (!)
This year, in addition to giving away heartlocks, we are once again partnering with the Henry Street Settlement to throw a lunch in honor of single moms.
We are over-the-moon to be partnering with Bobbi Brown, who will be donating beauty products; and Material for the Arts, who will be providing handbags and an artist-led workshop helping children make vases in which they can put the bouquets from the flower market.
Giving the locks is a small thing in the grand scheme of things but we have found that they make the recipients happy. It is that simple. To date we have given away thousands of locks to single moms all over the country.
