Thank you, Mom: P&G Supports Special Olympics mothers

We all owe who we are to our mother’s devotion. Special Olympics athletes owe a lot to one very special mother as well: Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

As part of P&G’s Thank you, Mom campaign, we’re celebrating mothers of Special Olympics athletes this week. Visit their Facebook page and share the video “The Gift My Mother Gave Me.” Every share equals a $1 donation to Special Olympics, up to $50,000 total. In this video, Maria Shriver recalls the most important gift her mother, Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver, gave her – the gift of possibility.

You can also help boost the donation to Special Olympics through Twitter. Earlier today, @thankyoumom shared a tweet about the Maria video asking fans to retweet. For every retweet of @thankyoumom’s tweet featuring Maria Shriver’s video during the month of May, P&G will donate $1 to Special Olympics, up to $25,000.

It’s also time to kick off this year’s P&GbrandSAVER® program! Keep an eye out for your P&GbrandSAVER® coupon books in your local newspaper on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12, 2013.

This promotion is based on coupon redemption: Special Olympics will receive 2 cents for every coupon used and you must present the coupon upon checkout. There is no limit to the donation from P&G, so the more coupons redeemed, the higher the gift. And don’t forget the savings for you — the P&GbrandSAVER® coupon book includes over$48 in savings! The coupons expire June 30, 2013, so don’t wait too long to start clipping and saving! To find a local newspaper carrying the P&GbrandSAVER® coupon book please click here.

Maria also stopped by the Today show this morning as part of her new role as a special correspondent. You can watch that interview here.

  1. This is so great! I watched Maria Shriver on the Today Show this morning and immediately went to Facebook to watch and share the video! I cried – it was so beautiful. I also wrote a blog asking my followers to share the video as well > http://spreadingtheword4specialolympics.wordpress.com/2013/05/07/thank-you-mom/

    Eunice Kennedy Shriver is my hero. I wish I could have personally thanked her for all she has done. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have anything to be passionate about. I love Special Olympics and everything that it stands for. So, thank you Eunice, for changing the world!
