Kaleo Collective is a community for single mothers to find support and help build a foundation for their families. They provide teaching on healthy habits, how to break unhealthy cycles and help to create opportunities for career and personal development.

“Often single mothers are either doing the work or forgoing the fuss. This event helps kids celebrate their moms with a gift of love and appreciation on this special day,” said Layna Haley, Kaleo Collective Founder “We want to make sure no mom is forgotten this Mother’s Day.”

With the rising cost of living, it is becoming increasingly challenging for single mothers to keep up. This event gives the mothers a chance to feel special and have a worry-free day.

This is a free event but people who want to help with the event are encouraged to make a $50 donation to the event by “adopting-a-mom”.
