Why I Love my Mom (and a chance to win a $250 FTD gift card)



Did you know that Mother's Day has been around for 100 years? I had no idea. I guess Mother's Day has been celebrated for even longer than that, but in 1914 Woodrow Wilson signed a bill recognizing Mother's Day as a national holiday in the United States. On May 11, Mother’s Day will celebrate its 100-year anniversary. In honor of the centennial and moms everywhere, FTD is looking for 100 Stories of Mom and will honor 100 Moms with a special bouquet of flowers. What’s the best advice she’s given you? How has she raised you? Is she the funniest person you know? Every mom is a standout. Share a story with us about your mom!



Want to surprise Mom with some beautiful flowers? It's easy!

1.  Go to the FTD site.
2.  Submit your own video, or a photograph with a story (200 words or less)

The top 100 stories will receive a $50 FTD gift card.

Want a second chance to win flowers for Mom? After submitting your video or story on the FTD site, come back here and leave me a comment, letting me know that you submitted your story and you'll be entered to win a $250 FTD gift card!

I'll choose a random winner on Tuesday, May 6!

200 words is not near enough to tell my story, but I entered! If I win they are going to my sister who helped raise me. My Mom would have liked that!

I entered my mother in law. She raised my husband as a single mother. I am so grateful, because the sacrifices that she made when he was a child allowed him to become the man he is today.
