Thank You Mom Reunion Voting

Remember when I posted about the Thank You Mom Reunion? Well, it's voting time!

Here's some information about Thank You Mom Reunions:
*Proctor & Gamble continues to celebrate moms everywhere with "Thank You Mom Reunions", a nationwide contest to reunite moms and their children for milestone family moments like graduations and birthdays they otherwise might have missed.

*“Thank You Mom Reunions” will bring together 105 moms with their children, who are unable to do so on their own. (15 per month for a 10 month campaign.)

*Since Mother's Day, participants have been submitting their stories online to be considered for a reunion with their mom or mother figure for the June contest. Thirty finalists have been selected and consumers will choose the 15 winners.

*Winners will receive a $1000 travel voucher and portable digital video camera to capture their reunion and are encouraged to share the video on

Please visit and vote for your favorite entry, or submit one of your own for the next round of voting in July.

Voting is limited to once a day, so keep going back daily to vote for your favorite. Voting ends for this period 11:59:59 ET June 30, 2010.

I think that this is truly amazing what Proctor & Gamble are doing. My mom is my best friend and I am thankful that we live very close to each other. I can not imagine living far away from her, let alone not seeing her for years. I am so glad she is here to share in all our special moments. For those that need / want a Mom Reunion, I truly hope you get that. I hope that you can spend time with your mom and make some special memories like I have!
