• Win a shout-out from the President for your mom

    Whether or not your mom's on Twitter, here's something guaranteed to make her smile on Sunday: getting a personal shout-out from President Obama.

    From now until Thursday at midnight, you have a chance to win that for your mom or a special mother in your life—just get five or more donations to your grassroots fundraising page to automatically put yourself in the running. (If you don’t have a page, you can set one up here.)

    That's right: If your name is drawn, the President will send your mom a special Mother's Day tweet from @BarackObama. With more than 15 million people following him on Twitter, she'll be honored in front of a pretty wide audience.

    Even if your mom doesn't have an account, she'll still be getting a personal note from the President of the United States, thanking her for doing all the hard work that goes into being a mother.

    I know my mom, Anne, would be thrilled—and it might even inspire her to give the whole Twitter thing a try.

    So give it a shot. Tell everyone you know to pitch in and help get your name in the hat.

    All you need are five donations by Thursday at midnight to be automatically entered, and it could be your mom who has an extra-special Mother's Day this year.

    Good luck (and hi, Mom)!
