Make Mom the Star of a Free March of Dimes E-Card
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This Mother's Day give Mom the coolest e-card on the Web - available free and exclusively from the March of Dimes.
The e-card, which can be found at http://www.MomYouRock.com, can be personalized by uploading Mom's photo - or maybe a photo of yourself or her favorite pet - and adding a thoughtful or funny message.
The card portrays Mom in her rightful positions -- star of the show. She is the star of a rock band, playing all the instruments as the crowd chants: "Mom, You Rock!"
Kids of any age, dads, grandchildren or anyone else can send the e-card, designed by MushyGushy, to the most important women in their lives. The e-cards are available now for Mother's Day, but they can be sent any time of year, for Mom's birthday, to celebrate an achievement, or to say thanks for just being mom. But don't stop with Mom, let your - and her - siblings in on the fun by forwarding them the cards, too.
The cards are free, but both the sender and the recipient can choose to make a donation to help support the March of Dimes lifesaving research and educational programs in communities nationwide.
"March of Dimes champions the needs of all babies - those born healthy as well as those who need help to survive and thrive. We want the same thing all moms do - a day when every baby is born healthy," said Patricia Goldman, vice president and chief marketing officer for the March of Dimes. "Just as in her daily routine Mom juggles many different roles - doctor, chef, chauffeur, coach and more - in our e-card, Mom is the star."
The e-cards are just one of several items available from the March of Dimes that can be sent as gifts for Mother's Day.
