ReasonsMySonIsCrying is for mothers who want to sit back, relax, and have a good laugh watching kids cry for the silliest of reasons. The account started off as a fun project for a mum who wanted to record all the cute and absurd things that makes her little boy cry. Now, the Twitter account gets submissions from moms all over the world. The reasons that make kids cry aren’t always logical, and that’s exactly the reason why the pictures are funny. Find the picture of the kid who cried just because he can’t fit all of his crayons in his hand. So cute!
Cradles to Crayons
Maternal instincts kick in whenever moms see a suffering child. This account is for moms who want to extend their parental support to the homeless children in America. The Cradles to Crayons charity is like the North American version of the Monaco-based Unakids, which provides warm clothes, food, and school supplies to low-income families. The only difference is that Unakids operates in war-torn countries in the Middle East. Cradles to Crayons supports thousands of children every year, and they keep their supporters updated with their missions via Twitter. If you have extra school supplies or clothes and want to know how and where to donate them, you can visit the group’s twitter account here.
