This year, in honor of Mother’s Day, ds-connex invites moms to send us a letter you might write to your children, sharing with them how special it is to be their mom. Like most everything, motherhood has its ups and downs. One moment we’re bragging about our kids on a local Facebook group for moms, the next we’re texting our best friends about the latest shenanigans our kids have thrown our way. No matter what the level of chaos, one thing is for certain: we are moms because of our kids and we wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.
Beginning April 20th, submit your letters and an accompanying photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will collect submissions through May 11th and share your stories and photos on the ds-connex social media channels. All entries will be posted to an album on the ds-connex Facebook page on May 12th. Four winners will be randomly selected to receive their choice of a $50 Amazon e-gift card or a $50 donation to their Down syndrome fundraising team.
Contest entries should be submitted via email to email@example.com, beginning 4/20/23. All submissions will require a photo with their letter, which should be 6-10 sentences max, and the entry should include the mother’s name and email address. Four winners will be randomly drawn on 5/12/23 and winners will be notified via email. Winners will have their choice of a $50 Amazon e-gift card or a donation to their Down syndrome fundraising team. By submitting an entry, you are granting ds-connex permission to share your photo and story on our social media channels and website. Please note that ds-connex may edit your entry for grammar or length.
