What Makes A Mom Sharing Kit

Sharing #WhatMakesAMom

Mother's Day is May 10, so we're taking time to ask, "What does 'mom' mean to you?" and inviting you to shop the IJM Gift Catalog. Thanks for using your voice to join the conversation!

From April 27 to May 10, post on your social media feeds what "mom" means to you and invite your friends and followers to purchase from the IJM Gift Catalog.


How does buying from the gift catalog help?

During this time, the most vulnerable are at risk, and buying from the gift catalog helps us to care for the most vulnerable by providing for their basic needs. Your donation will go directly toward the gift category you select. If the amount raised exceeds our needs for any specific gift category, surplus funds will be directed to IJM’s most urgent needs.

What is the order of posting on Instagram stories?

Tile 1 (Instagram Story – Slide 1): “What does "mom" mean to you?”

Tile 2 (Instagram Story – Slide 2): Your video of answering the question [Feel free to overlay your video on top of the template provided in Slide 2]

Tile 3 (Instagram Story – Slide 3): Melissa Russell’s video that ties the question and IJM’s work together

Tile 4 (Instagram Story – Slide 4): Call to action – Swipe up to go to the gift catalog [Link your gift catalog URL here]

Can I create my own posts?
