Give the Gift of Tech This Mother's day

Project Administrator, Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI)

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Don’t have a special gift lined-up for Mom yet? Don’t panic.

We have some virtual present ideas that are sure to connect you:

Give some Good. The Platform for Good team created downloadable, printable coupons for you to give to Mom – from two hours of computer setup time to a tech-free afternoon spent with you, they are sure to put a smile on mom’s face.

Create an online scrapbook. Make a virtual scrapbook with baby pictures or old family photos and unveil it on Sunday for some fun time reminiscing.

Send an e-card. Maybe you’ve got a lot going on this week. Sending an e-card is an easy way to let Mom know you care.

Build a profile. Make her a profile on social media if she doesn’t have one already. It’s a great way to stay connected with relatives. We created a coupon for that, too!

Celebrate online. Does Mom live too far away for a get-together on Sunday? Meet up online instead. Skype, Google Hangouts, FaceTime are all great options!

Make a donation. Does she have a cause she cares about? Make an online donation in her name then email her the receipt or include it in her card. It’s a great way to make her feel special and to spread a little goodness in her honor.
