Video tributes to Mothers

Unlike the past two years, there aren't a lot of calls for conspicuous consumption to celebrate the holiday on my YouTube feed today.  Even ABC News promoted non-material gifts for mom in Last Minute Mother's Day Gift Ideas.

Ah, how sweet--and sustainable, too!

Follow over the jump for the other distinctive ways that news organizations are giving tribute to moms.

On Friday, WOOD-TV showed how a mother gave her son the gift of life twice by donating a kidney.

Yesterday, NTDTV showed a Brazilian beauty contest for women over 60 in Sixty Five Year Old Wins Beauty Contest.

Sixty-five-year-old Brazilian Irenilda de Oliveira Meneses proved it's never too late to be a beauty queen as she was crowned Sao Paulo's most beautiful elderly woman on Thursday (May 9).

The finalists, all residents of Sao Paulo over the age of 60, competed in the annual beauty contest organized by Sao Paulo's state health department to coincide with Mother's Day.
May this contest succeed in promoting good health habits as well as honoring mothers and grandmothers.

Today, CNN featured other beautiful and talented women in Spotify's top rock moms.

Finally, this would not be a complete entry without the science about the subject.  Discovery News provided it in a tribute to the best animal moms.
