What Makes the Mom in Your Life Special? Share Photos, Stories – and Win
We want to see your photos and read your stories of mom, grandma, foster mother or other significant mother figure in your life. You might win her a nice prize!
Your mom was been there to kiss your tears away as a child, and to help you wrestle with life’s tough questions as you grew older. She’s special – and you want her to know it.
We invite you to share her story on Patch. Just upload a photo of your mom or other mother figure in your life – grandma, foster mother, mother-in-law – and tell us in the caption of the photo why the mom in your life rocks. Be sure to tell us what community you and your mom live in, too.
You just might win dinner at The Root Restaurant & Bar in White Lake – the Detroit Free Press' Restaurant of the Year – or a $50 gift card at Metals in Time in Royal Oak that we're giving away to moms who touch the lives of readers in our 29 Michigan Patch communities.
You have until Thursday, May 10, to share her photo and story on Patch. Three prize winners will be selected at random. In addition, each Patch site will choose one special mom to feature, so be sure to include where you live, too. We’ll announce the winners on Mother's Day, May 13.
We know that the special mom in your life just might be your guardian, grandmother, wife or even yourself, so don’t be shy about entering. We love all moms!
So get ready to show Mom why she’s so awesome – share her photo and story on Patch!
