Screen Shot 2014-07-15 at 2.53.40 PM took to the streets of Toronto for the “I Appreciate Her” Mother’s Day Project where people were asked to share how their mothers inspired them and what they love most about their mom’s.

“Everyone has a different kind of relationship with their mother’s,” says author and motivational speaker, Pauleanna Reid. “It’s important that people know that just because they have one kind of relationship with their mom, that it’s still a strong relationship and that it’s worth your time and energy to improve or maintain it. Like any relationship, the bond between mother and child is one that requires work and so I wanted to support this project so that others will be encouraged to work on their relationships with their mom’s no matter how good or bad it is.”

All participants received a copy of Reid’s debut fiction novel: Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother which is the story behind one mother/daughter relationship and a coming of age story for any woman who has ever questioned her sexual maturity and readiness, stayed silent at a time when she should have spoken up or accepted treatment that was less than what she deserved.
