5 Day Giveaway - Western Union Love In Any Language - $50 Prepaid Gift Cards(TWO WINNERS)

Do you know that Mother's Day is just over a week away! Don't have that perfect gift yet? That's OK, because Western Union has a campaign called Love In Any Language. It is designed to help express their love for mothers, family, friends and loved ones, who have all provided so much throughout the years.


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.

The perfect Mother's day gift is something homemade. My favorite gift is the flowers made out of Allie's handprints her and Matt made me a few years ago.

The perfect Mother's Day gift this year would be just five minutes more with my precious daughter.

I'd never ask for another thing.

*Except maybe another five minutes again and again.

I think the perfect Mother's Day gift really depends on the person. For my mom, it would be something that gets her more time with the grandbabies (I'm thinking about a movie gift pack so she has something to watch with them when we visit, and maybe a blanket to snuggle under with them!)

The perfect Mother's Day gift is showing your mother how much you love her by a beautiful day beginning with a corsage to wear to Church, spending quality time to make the day special and to either take her out or cook her the meal of her choice.
