By uploading pictures to corresponding stories, participants will not only be setting an example of the positive change people can make in the world, they will also be helping all women: for every image or story uploaded, $1.00 will be donated to a Women’s Mental Health program. Consumers will also be entered into a contest to win an unforgettable getaway to Costa Rica.

My story is about my mom. My parents got divorced when I was little, and I spent a lot of time with my mom and she basically  raised my brother and I herself. She helped me through many things in life like school, even when I decided to leave home for the first time at 20 and go live across the world in Australia and then leave again shortly after I came back to go to S.Korea. She also helped with breakups, getting my first car and much more. She’s always there to help and guide me even when I don’t want any help lol! But that’s what makes an amazing mother and I’m lucky to have her.

    My mom inspires me, more than I realized. My dad recently passed away and although this news has been devastating to all of us, my mom has become our pillar of strength. She lost her best friend, her soul mate, her roommate yet she has put us before herself. As a daddy’s girl, this loss has had an incredible affect on me, yet my mom has baked me cookies and served it with milk every week when I go and visit her. She is my strength and inspiration.

    My mom is the epitome of strength. Her father died when she was young and she had to take care of her family and help raise her siblings. When they immigrated to Canada, no one else in family knew English so she had the extra burden of translating everything. She took two jobs to put herself through college so that she could become a teacher. Her students love her and she is an inspiration for them as well.
