Mothers sacrifice so much for their children and family. But sadly, even with a national holiday, there are far too many mothers who’s efforts go unnoticed and unappreciated.
That’s all about to change.
The Mothers Month Movement unveiled their plans today to celebrate mothers for the entire month of November to fight cancer and raise awareness for the charity, Cancer for College. With the ultimate goal of involving the world in a massive social tribute to mothers. During the month of November followers are encouraged to make a tribute to their mother via e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, or by creating a video tribute on Youtube.
An initial goal of ONE MILLION TRIBUTES are targeted for this year’s celebration.
“I almost lost my mother to cancer, that experience changed my life,” said Ced Funches, founder of The Mothers Month Movement. “That inspired me to write a children’s book, and try to teach the world to love and appreciate their mothers before it is too late.”
“The goal is simple. Encourage the world to honor and celebrate their mothers for 30 days and give them an easy platform to do it. You can simply go to our site and make an instant tribute to your mom.” said Ced Funches. “We take our mothers for granted and sometimes forget to let them know how much they mean to us. A sincere ‘thank-you’ or ‘I love you’ can have huge impact on mothers who go some days without hearing either one.”
Followers are also encouraged to call, visit, and email their mothers. With the focus not on spending money, but spending time with their mothers and expressing just how much they love and appreciate them.
You can celebrate Mothers Month in three easy ways via the tribute site:
Make a tribute on Facebook.
Create a tribute video on YouTube. Title it: Mother Month -“YOUR TITLE”
Make a tribute to your mom via Twitter. Insert #mothersmonth.
These options are made into easy one-click steps on the Mothers Month tribute site found at http://mothersmonth.com/tribute/.
