P&G Thank You Mom Reunion Contest
I haven't seen my mom in over 15 years....yes, that's FIFTEEN YEARS! She has never seen my 11 year old daughter or seen our son since he was a baby - such a tremendous bridge to cross...she's a good person with some heavy baggage. We've stayed in touch by phone and mail, but it's never as good as being together for a real visit.
We have overcome many obstacles in our lives, and I think the time is ripe for a wonderful reunion - soon. I recently learned about an amazing contest hosted by Proctor & Gamble "Thank You Mom Reunion". I submitted my entry last night, and I'm praying for a miracle to see Mom and tell her in person what a powerful force she has been in my life - even from a distance. Here's the details:
Thank You Mom Reunion Contest
You could win $1,000 and a video camera for a special reunion with your mom or mother-figure!!!
Proctor & Gamble is kicking off the "Thank You Mom Reunions" contest to reunite Moms and their children for milestone family moments they otherwise might have missed.
“Thank You Mom Reunions” will bring together 105 moms with their children, who are unable to do so on their own. (15 per month for a 10 month campaign.)
You are invited to log onto www.thankyoumom.com and enter to win a travel voucher to help cover the cost of a special reunion with their mom or mom figure in their life.
How Someone Can Win a Thank You Mom Reunion:
Entrants must submit a 100 word essay describing why they’d like to be united with their mom.
Consumers vote for their favorite entries.
15 winners will be chosen every month through November.
Winners will also receive a portable digital video camera to capture their reunion and are encouraged to share the video on www.ThankYouMom.com.
WISHING YOU THE BEST OF LUCK IN YOUR ENTRY - WE ALL LOVE OUR SPECIAL MOMS!
