Hot on the heels of the release of their latest single “You Told Me” which debuted at a New York City Mother’s Day gala celebration benefitting Dress for Success and hosted by Jenny McCarthy, the all-female rock band The Mrs. continue to honor moms everywhere. The Mrs. is launching the #YouToldMe Mother’s Day Contest today to give participants across the U.S. a chance to win $50,000 for sharing their mother’s life lessons and words of wisdom. One lucky winner will be selected today, Mother’s Day.
By having entrants write about their mother’s words of wisdom, the band hopes to continue to draw attention to the incredible work moms do in caring for their families every day. Recently, The Mrs. commissioned a survey of 5,000 mothers, and found that nearly 95% of them feel inadequate – and 90% agree that feeling like they’re not “enough” is a universal pattern among mothers. The Mrs. is on a mission to help change that!
“We all have worries, fears, and times when we feel we are not enough,” said The Mrs. founder and drummer, Andra Liemandt. “We want to empower women to believe they are enough just as they are.”
As part of their growing female empowerment movement and to help support the financial security of women, The Mrs. is aligning with Rising Tide Capital, a non-profit organization that will provide financial advisement to the contest recipient.
The Mrs. #YouToldMe Mother’s Day contest is designed to draw attention to the value of all the little things moms do and say every single day. The Mrs. became known across the country for their powerful message of self-acceptance. Their first single “Enough” inspired the #ImEnough movement that is resonating with women from all walks of life, empowering them to love themselves just as they are. To bring this message to life, they created a talking “magic mirror” and have been successfully convincing women everywhere that they are, indeed, Enough!
