I don’t know about you, but I have the world’s best mom! She’s always been my biggest cheerleader, always interested in what I’m doing, thinking and feeling. She still makes me feel like everything I do is the greatest. It’s because of her that I have the courage to tackle new and scary things (like starting a blog). It’s because of her that I am who I am today.
I always feel awkward expressing myself on a card. I so sincerely want to express my gratitude and don’t mean to be sarcastic, but it somehow comes out sound patronizing or trite. This year, I’ve found the perfectly fun way to let my mom know how much I appreciate her – with a Mom-Poem, a #Moem.
A #moem is a tribute poem for your mom. It’s 135 characters or less, preferably rhyming and perfect for sharing on social channels so that your mom and everyone knows exactly how you feel about her.
And no worries if you’re not a natural poet, MetLife has made it easy to create a #moem for your mom with their Moem Maker. It helps you create your own rhyming #moem. I used it to create this Tweet for my mom. It was so fun that I may be making quite a few more tribute #moems for my wonderful mom.
The great thing about creating a #Moem for your mom (or anyone you want to recognize on Mother’s Day) is that for every #moem posted, MetLife will donate $10 to Dress for Success to help mothers in need. Dress for Success Worldwide is an organization that helps low-income women achieve independence for themselves and their families by supporting their search for professional employment.
So pop over to #Moem now to write a tribute to your own mom and help Dress for Success reach their $50,000 goal (donations are made for #moems posted between now and midnight on Mother’s Day).
