Skype Mother’s Day Greetings

Sure, Mother’s Day cards are something to treasure, especially when you take the time to write something in your own words. You’re putting your own touch on the card which makes it special. Did you know that you can personalize video greetings with Skype and use that as your Mother’s Day card?

Instead of a generic picture on a card, your mom will see your smiling face. You talk and record your own greeting. Add music if you’d like. I bet your Mom will appreciate your effort. Plus she’ll get to see and hear you!

Skype Mother's Day Greeting

Skype’s Mom You Rock Charity Campaign

As a Skype Ambassador with Mom Central, I’ll be learning about the many different ways to use Skype and sharing that information with you. Right now, Skype is celebrating Mother’s Day by offering a free video greeting card through their Mom You Rock Campaign. For each card you make, Skype will donate $1 to the Save the Children’s Global Action Fund.

It’s easy to make a video card. You just need a web cam and the directions that pop up on the screen on the Say It with Skype app on Skype’s Facebook page. (Approve the app first.)

  1. Find your mother or someone else who is like a mom to you by typing in their name. They need to be on Facebook.
  2. You’ll have a choice of 3 songs to include on your video card.
  3. Decide if you want to sing or rock along with the song.
  4. Click on record and smile!
  5. Personalize the message.
  6. Choose when (right away, on Mother’s Day, or another date) and how to send it (via email, posted on their Facebook page).
  7. Wait for a heartfelt thank you.

Why Video Greetings Rock

As a mom, I’d be tickled to get a video greeting. It’s unique and I know that it takes creativity to create one. I can save it on Facebook or with my video files, so I’ll have it for a long time. No gifts are needed with this type of greeting! I’ve never made a video greeting until today, but now that I see how entertaining it is, I’ll give them a try again. There’s a birthday card, so watch out everyone! If you don’t live close to your mother, a video greeting card will make her feel like you’re right there with her. Then hop onto Skype and do a live chat with your mom.

    I just got an idea for a gift for mum this coming mothers day. To add on the gift I have already, a video greeting will be one thing that will make my mum very happy. Thank you so much for sharing, I owe you.
