Mother’s Day is May 11th (I have a great gift if you order by April 30)

Are you ready for Mother’s Day? Need some ideas? Relax, I’ve got you covered.

I always say (and I mean it) that all I want is a card. My favorite cards are handmade by my children, but since I am somewhat north of 40, maybe my own mother wishes I’d dial it up a notch. Just a guess. (Mom? I’ll use markers instead of crayons this year).

Recently this ad campaign (Mullen advertising agency for American Greetings) went viral and the comments are all over the place. What do you think? I think it was a great campaign and did what any ad campaign sets out to do. Click here to see the video #WorldsToughestJob

I would have made it funnier (well, I think it would be funnier – “Associate may or may not have difficulty transitioning between activities” and “Occasionally (or frequently), the associate will spew bodily fluids randomly and without warning, what is your action plan?”

Here’s a great way to send a fantastic card to your mom, support a great organization and it’s even tax deductible. Win-win-win.

Mother’s Day: Honor a Special Woman and Support the League of Women Voters!

Card Cover / Inside

For a $25 donation, the LWVMA will send a card to a special woman in your life, wishing her a Happy Mother’s Day and letting her know that a donation to the League has been made in her name.  This is a great opportunity for you to recognize a mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt, niece, cousin, friend…or anyone else!  Donations will go to the Citizen Education Fund to support voter service and education programs and are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.  Simply include the name and address of the recipient(s) and they will mail the card directly to her. Orders must be received by April 30 to be delivered by Mother’s Day (May 11). 

Spoiler alert for my mom – I already ordered your card and it will be nicer than anything I could make. xo
