Pack-A-Pocket

Make another mum's day today and report back to us, secret agent style. Then see if they can find you here...

                  

All you have to do is slip a treat into an unsuspecting mum's pocket. It could be your own mum, grandmum, another mum you know, or maybe a friend you spot having a horrible day. What gift would really cheer them up or show them how valued they really are? (Some Pack-A-Pocket treats from our launch are pictured above to give you some ideas...)

instructions

Click on 'join in' above and enter the mum's first name, location, what you plan to give them, and why they deserve it. All this in only 128 characters, so be concise!

Then, hide your treat in the lucky mum's pocket without being found out. Make sure that somewhere on your gift you include a clue: this page address "www.storyofmum.com/pocket" so that they can solve the mystery and find your words about them here. You could write it on the gift, attach a tag, or even text it to them as you make your escape... 

You can join in and treat other mums as many times as you like. Because we're worth it!

And if you've chosen your own mum (you don't have to - you can treat any mum at all) and would like to tell us more about what she means to you and the treat you've shared, you can also join in with I Love You Mum.
