Vote for your favorite- "Thank You Mom Reunion" contest

We live about 4 hours away from our family, who live in MI. While it's not terribly far, I miss my family so much! I wish my kids could see their grandparents more than once a month, but regardless of distance we are all very close!  My mom and my mother in law are some of my dearest friends, and I appreciate them so much! We talk often on the phone, and my son loves to talk to his grandparents on the phone and share with them his funny stories of the day!

There are some families are not so lucky to be as close, distance wise, to their families. I can't imagine not being able to see my children whenever I wanted, although I know the day will come! There are some mothers who are thousands of miles away from their kids, and may not be able to afford the trip to visit.

Proctor & Gamble continues to celebrate moms beyond Mother's Day everywhere with "Thank You Mom Reunions", a nationwide contest to reunite Moms and their children for milestone family moments like graduations and birthdays they otherwise might have missed.

Thank You Mom Reunions” will bring together 105 moms with their children, who are unable to do so on their own.  (15 per month for a 10 month campaign.)  
Since Mother's Day, participants have been submitting their stories online to be considered for a reunion with their mom or mother figure for the June contest.  Thirty finalists have been selected and consumers will choose the 15 winners.

Winners will receive a $1000 travel voucher and portable digital video camera to capture their reunion and are encouraged to share the video on ThankYouMom.com. 

So what can you, my readers do? Visit the Thank You Mom homepage and vote! Vote once a day if you can! Vote for your favorite story, the one that touches your heart the most.
And while you are there, you can submit your own Thank You Mom story, and be entered in July's contest!

Voting ends for this period 11:59:59 ET June 30, 2010.

I know I have some amazing and generous readers out there, so take the time to vote!
