What domain ending is three letters and perfect for important days? .day of course! Since its launch earlier this year, .day has quickly grown in popularity. The Google Registry team loves this domain because it’s the perfect way to celebrate a birth.day or wedding.day, raise awareness for a cause, and mark special occasions. This May is a great example of the different ways in which people and organizations are using the .day top-level domain: Accessibility.day, NativeNonprofit.day, EndangeredSpecies.day, and, of course, mothers.day.

As a mom of three, I’ve always been a bit struck by the lack of conversation around giving and donating around Mother’s Day. That’s why our team is introducing mothers.day — a resource dedicated to highlighting inequities in maternal health and helping families at different stages of parenthood.

According to the World Health Organization, over 800 people around the globe die daily from pregnancy and childbirth related causes that could have been prevented. The path to parenthood isn’t currently an equitable experience, but you can help make a difference by supporting organizations that are closing these gaps across different stages of parenthood. Giving isn’t the only way to make an impact; you can also participate in research studies.

This May, help spread the word on this important issue by using #mothersdotday on your social media. And if you want to raise awareness around a day that’s meaningful to you, get your own .day domain
