Katie Holmes Kicks Off Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, but Katie Holmes had an early start. The actress kicked off her Mother’s Day celebration by participating in “Mom’s Day Off” with the Sunrise Day Camp at the Crocs store in New York City last Monday.

Katie invited children from the Sunrise Day Camp to the store in order to gift them with Crocs and treats as well as provide their mothers with some well-deserved time off. The Sunrise Day Camp plans fun daytime activities for cancer-stricken children and their siblings, completely free of charge to their families. Their goal is to bring back the joys of childhood to kids who often feel lonely and isolated while fighting cancer.

As a single mom, Katie knows how difficult it can be for mothers to take time for themselves while juggling parenting duties and career demands. It can be especially difficult when your child is facing a life-threatening illness. She joined Crocs in encouraging moms to celebrate Mother’s Day this year by taking a day off, whether it be spending time with friends, hitting the day spa for some relaxation, or indulging in a little shopping.

While at the event, Katie spent several hours with the children. They shopped the store, picked out shoes, and decorated footwear. The fashionable 37-year-old star tried on a pair for herself and was overheard saying, “I love Crocs, and I love Sunrise Day Camp. As a working mom, it’s nice to be able to find footwear that’s comfortable without having to sacrifice style.”

It was a busy week for Katie, who also celebrated the 10th birthday of her daughter Suri earlier that day and premiered her directorial debut, All We Had, at the Tribeca Film Festival. Katie posted a sweet tribute to her daughter on Instagram, saying, “Happy Birthday to my sweet angel Suri? ? ?.”

Moms everywhere, heed Katie’s advice and have a little you-time on May 8th.
