Happy Mothers Day to the Professional Football Players Mothers Association

ALLGBP.com All Green Bay Packers All the Time

First, a very Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms out there. I hope everyone will take the time to show their appreciation to their Moms in some way today or honor their memories if no longer with us.

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 Mission: To identify and implement programs that advance the organizations vision by providing yearly educational seminars and programs designed to inform and assist players and their mothers in their transition to the NFL. To provide financial and moral support to charities for at-risk-youth and disadvantaged communities with revenue generated yearly in fund-raising events and organizational sponsorships and to also provide volunteer representation in events in local communities to promote education by sharing the success of our sons and PFPMA.

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.

The group was deeply involved with helping Hurricane katrina victims and has assisted various other charities, including:

Education is Freedom
Habitat for Humanity
Feed the Children
Sheridan House
Bright Beginnings
Aspira of Illinois Alternative High School Program
Harvey Colts “Pop Warner” Football Organization
St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital
America Heart Association
American Red Cross – Haiti Relief
Read Across America
Arizona Cardinals Christmas Charity

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!
