The campaign takes the approach of using music, which is universally used to express love towards others in any language, as a way to empower consumers during the Mother’s Day season. The cards being utilized for the giveaway are available on the Western Union Website in amounts up to $100 and include a customizable printed greeting card and a personalized voice message.
Consumers had the chance to upload videos where they creatively expressed their love. That contest is now over, but Western Union wants to continue to help you give the perfect Mother's Day Gift.
Here are some survey stats from a survey that was conducted by Western Union with Wakefield Research.
-It’s not so easy to find mom that perfect Mother’s Day gift. 52% of Americans report their top gripe for gifting to mom is they don’t know what she wants, and 43% say they can’t afford what they really want to purchase. This May, give a gift mom wants and stay within your budget by giving cash.
-Sometimes the most traditional Mother’s day gift can fall short. A recent survey by Western Union found that 74% of adults admit their mother would rather receive $50 cash than a $50 bouquet of flowers.
