Thank You Mom

by arianne

We sit and watch as Olympians from all countries sweat, compete and give their all.  As I contemplate these amazing athletes I always think of the mamas.  Those ladies waiting in the wings, biting their lip and holding their breath while their precious child gives their all.

I think of Joannie Rochette, the Canadian figure skater who went on to give an amazing performance just two days after finding out her mother had passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.  I imagine the tears shed as dreams are pushed back another 4 years (or permanently) when things fall short, the moms having nothing but a hug and a shoulder to offer…not to mention the tears I’ve shed over the amazing P & G commercials throughout the Olympic Games.

As the 2010 Winter Games come to an incredible conclusion, I wanted to introduce to you an exciting project I’ve been working on, as well as tell you about this incredible chance for you to nominate a mother to cheer on Team USA at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.  What an amazing experience that would be!

First, take a look at the inaugural BlissTV episode highlighting the P&G Thank you Mom Campaign and Contest, and some of the amazing moms we feel are living the core values of the US Olympic Movement: Excellence, Respect and Friendship.  {You may see some friendly faces!  Love you mom!}

Next, nominate a mom you know living those core values of the US Olympic Movement — the winning nomination and mom will receive a 4-day, 3 night all-expense paid trip to the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London to cheer on Team USA.  It’s very easy to enter, so click over and good luck!! {Comments are closed — please nominate a mom you know who would be blessed by this!}
