Looking for a connection between football and Mothers day, I discovered an organization called the Professional Football Players Mothers Association (PFPMA). Headed by Wilma McNabb, mother of Donovan McNabb, it’s a service organization that seeks to counsel and educate mothers of new NFL players and coordinate community service programs.
From their Web site:
PFPMA is a service organization dedicated to educating and informing moms about the business of professional football as well as supporting charitable causes and the communities where our sons have come from and where they now live.
Our Vision: The Professional Footballs Players Mothers Associations purpose is to educate and inform Mothers about the business of professional football; enhance the public image of professional football players, promote respect and fair play on and off the field, assist our sons in their charitable efforts in the communities from which they came and in which they work, and to support each other.
Looks like they are doing a lot of worthwhile work, so I just wanted to give them some special recognition on Mothers Day. Keep up the good work, Moms!——————
