Celebrate Mom This Mother’s Day with a #Moem

Mother’s Day is coming up tomorrow and it’s time to honor the moms in our life. MetLife wants to help honor moms with a charitable donation. But how you ask? With a #Moem.
Now that I have your attention, you’re probably wondering what a #Moem is? A #Moem is a tribute poem written and posted on social channels, preferably rhyming, in 135 characters or less. Here are some great examples:
– Of all the special joys in life, the big ones and the small. Spending today with my Mom, is the greatest of them all. #moem
– “I forget around this time, almost every year, I owe it to her to say thank you, to my beautiful Mother dear. #moem”
So, why would you do this? Every #moem written to honor your Mom for Mother’s Day will also help raise funds for Mothers in need through a charity called Dress for Success Worldwide. They’re an organization that helps low-income women achieve economic independence for themselves and their families through supporting their search for professional employment.
For every #moem posted, MetLife will donate $10 toward Dress for Success’ goal of $50,000 (Note: While you can make Moems after Mother’s Day the donation ends at Midnight on Mother’s Day).
Here's the #Moem I created for my mom for Mother's Day:
What #moem did you create for your mom for Mother's Day?
