E-mail we received from the Girls Educational & Mentoring Service (GEMS):
As an annual celebration of the women and girls in our lives, GEMS invites you to upload your favorite photos of you and your mother, daughters, or other amazing, influential women and girls in your life. Share your photos and stories with us as we honor women this holiday! We set up a special Shutterfly page so that supporters can easily upload your photos: http://gemsmothersday.shutterfly.com.
We will be making a supporter-generated music video with the inspiring song "This Is To Mother You," which features Martha B, Mary J. Blige, and Sinead O'Connor. The video will be released in time for Mother's Day! Check out the story behind the song here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV7dRs3KYU0&feature=player_embedded.
Supporters who participate in the photo contest will also have a chance to win a free, signed copy of Girls Like Us from GEMS executive director and founder Rachel Lloyd!
So, if you're thinking of a way to celebrate a woman in your life, send us your photos before May 5th!
