NESTLÉ Family Mother’s Day Giveaway

Through May 23rd, NESTLÉ Family is celebrating the sisterhood of motherhood with a special Facebook program.  This Facebook program helps consumers honor the special moms in their lives while simultaneously raising donations and awareness for Mercy Housing, a national organization that is working to create a more humane world where poverty is alleviated, communities are healthy and all people can develop their full potential through affordable housing and supportive programs.

You can honor a mom on Facebook in 3 simple steps:

Create:  Use the Facebook app to create a personal photo tribute for the special Mom in your life and show her how much she is appreciated.

Give:  They’ll donate $1 to help mothers in need and their families through Mercy Housing. The goal is to raise $50,000* and NESTLÉ Family needs your help to get there.

Share:  They’ve made it easy to share your photo tribute with your favorite Mom, friends, family, and help raise awareness for the cause.

As part of the campaign, I will be provided with a $50 gift card to donate to Mercy Housing or a charity of my choice.  I have also been provided with a $50 charitable gift card to honor a mom who’s special to me.  There are so many moms out there whom I admire, but I was only able to choose one.  I have chosen to honor Tanya Gordon from Mommy Goggles.  She has been an amazing friend and has helped me through some difficult times.  She is the mom I have chosen to honor on The Mommy-Files.  I also have the opportunity to give away one $50 charitable gift card to one of my readers on The Mommy-Files!


1 lucky reader on The Mommy-Files will receive a $50 charitable gift card to donate to Mercy Housing or a charity of choice!

    My Mom has passed, but she was a sweet, easy going and giving woman.
    I admire her the joy she took from life and would like to donate to the local animal shelter where she volunteered until she was no longer able or to PAWS another worthwhile charity she donated to herself. Thanks.

    My favorite mom is my friend Jodi, who has 6 boys and the patience of a saint! All the boys are involved in hockey – which makes for LONG hours and weekend trips away. Her house is always clean (altho maybe a bit chaotic), she always has meals made, helps with homework/projects, volunteers at the school. She does it all…and has fun with it!
