Over the last nine Mother’s Days I’ve received everything from a baby (Wade was born on Mother’s Day.) to flowers to homemade cards. Like most moms, I love anything my family gives me, because I know the gifts come from their hearts.
Met Life has a creative way for you to honor Mom with a charitable donation and a #Moem. What’s a #Moem? It’s poem your write in 135 characters or less to honor the special mom in your life. Then you tell the world how much she means to you by sharing in on your social media channels.
My boys put their heads together and came up with this Moem about me:
We love our mom because she lets us eat pancakes until we have tummy aches.
David and Wade are pretty clever, but if you need help you can give the #Moem Maker a try. Here’s the one they made with that:
Every #moem written to honor your Mom for Mother’s Day will also help raise funds for Mothers in need through a charity called Dress for Success. They’re an organization that helps low-income women achieve economic independence for themselves and their families through supporting their search for professional employment. For every #moem you post before Midnight on Mother’s Day, MetLife will donate $10 toward Dress for Success’ goal of $50,000.
Don’t forget to tell your friends they can write their own #Moem, pay tribute to their moms, and make a difference in other moms’ lives as well.
