NEW YORK — Looking for flowers for Mother’s Day? Well, this pop-up shop is no everyday florist.

Reshma Saujauni, activist and CEO of Girls Who Code, is on a mission to help moms.

She explained the Marshall Plan for Mothers, a plan to pay our mothers for the unseen and unpaid labor. 

Saujani launched the “Moms Deserve More Flower Store,” an online flower shop highlighting the true value of mothers’ work and the true cost of adequately thanking them. The shop features bouquets like “The Unpaid Work Bouquet,” “The Lack of Childcare Bouquet” and “The Paid Leave Bouquet,” all priced according to data showing the unpaid work and broken policies impacting moms, ranging in prices from $9,500 to $800 billion.
