This Mother’s Day, Coca-Cola is launching a special microsite on May 6th where you can register to call your mom for free, anywhere, for three minutes. It’s just another way that Coca-Cola supports Latino families in staying connected and sharing important moments together. Ever since I was a little girl in Spain, Coca-Cola has always been a beloved brand in Latino households so it warms my heart to see them paying homage to Latino Culture and the importance of motherhood and family within our culture.
Coca-Cola believes every day should be a day to call and thank your mother for everything she’s done for you, but understands it may not always be possible for a variety of reasons. That’s why they want to give you a moment to connect with your mamá and tell her how much you love her!
Make sure you RSVP to JOIN US WEDNESDAY May 6th from 9-10 pm EST (6 – 7 PM PST)! on Twitter via the hashtag #INSEPARABLE because Coca-Cola wants to help you stay connected to Mami this Mother’s Day!
Let’s Discuss: What will you tell Mami if you can speak to her for three minutes this Mother’s Day?
