Western Union honours all moms

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 14 - it is one of the most popular days for brunches, lunches, dinners, and activities that are as varied as the mothers who love them.
It’s a time when Canadians, no matter where they’re from, make special efforts to honour their moms.

Kids in schools across the country craft amazing art, write touching poems or notes, or find other creative ways to show their moms how much they mean to them. Adults, meanwhile, often shop for something their moms will love, like new kit for her favourite hobby or sport, the latest bestselling book or DVD, or the perennial favourites – flowers and chocolate.

Moms love hugs and kisses most
But nothing means more to moms than the hugs and kisses they get from their loved ones. Spending time with them is usually what moms all over Canada love most.

And since 2017 is the year Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary, when we share amazing holidays and customs from all over the world, why not celebrate your own traditions for honouring mom this Mother’s Day with the family and friends who love her best? It could mean cooking her a meal, sharing tea and sweets, getting her outdoors with the grandkids for a picnic, or just gathering together on her favourite couch, watching her most beloved movie. 

For moms back home or far away
For mothers who are living back home or far away, you can call or video chat her to light up her day, mail a package of home-made cookies to make her smile, or send her a money transfer so she can choose something special for herself, wherever she is.

And Western Union wants to celebrate Mother’s Day with you. When you send money with Western Union between May 1 and October 15, you can enter a draw to win $10,000 cash and other instant prizes like $100 prepaid MasterCards, $25 Metro cards, $250 Sears cards and $500 in cash.
