As Mother’s Day approaches in the US, brands and agencies are not only offering traditional gifts this year but also crafting innovative campaigns that resonate deeply with the essence of motherhood.

From heartwarming reunions facilitated by DoorDash to MullenLowe planting career opportunities for moms, these initiatives are reshaping the celebration.

Let’s delve into these unique and truly helpful campaigns that celebrate moms in meaningful ways, from Dove Chocolate, MoneyGram and others.

DoorDash closes the distance between mothers and their children

DoorDash campaign

DoorDash isn’t just delivering flowers; it’s delivering heartwarming reunions and unbreakable bonds, whether you’re near or far from your mom. To mend the bittersweet feeling of being away from your mom on Mother’s Day, DoorDash teamed up with Dept, a digital marketing agency that is helping facilitate the remote delivery of both flowers and loved ones to doorsteps.

The campaign is supported through a content series of people reuniting with their moms and even an AR lens that allows people to connect to the moms in their lives, all in an effort to deepen connections between mothers and their children.

MullenLowe ‘Trojan Bouquets’ plant career opportunities for moms

momternship campaign

This year, creative agency MullenLowe partnered with Momternship, an internship program for moms, to tackle the bias mothers face returning to the workforce.

With 73% of moms reporting that they have encountered bias in the hiring process due to their parental status, MullenLowe’s approach involves delivering flowers wrapped in past Momtern resumes to industry recruiters who are also mothers in the form of ‘Trojan Bouquets.’ Visit to learn more.

Dove Chocolate uses AI to bridge the ‘Mommy Gap’ in employment

For Mother’s Day 2024, Dove Chocolate unveiled an AI tool, the ‘Mom Experience Translator,’ to empower mothers re-entering the workforce. Given the challenge of resume gaps from raising children, the technology transforms the skills moms acquire during motherhood into marketable assets for recruiters and hiring managers.

With over 60% of individuals with extended employment gaps being women, Dove’s initiative aims to combat bias and highlight the strengths of motherhood in professional settings. As part of its celebration, Dove Chocolate launches a sweepstakes offering financial support to 10 lucky moms, alongside a charitable contribution to aid women re-entering the workforce. Visit to access the ‘Mom Experience Translator.’

Genentech debuts ‘A Beautiful Sight’ animated short

Genentech, a pharma company, recently released an animated short film for its Vabysmo brand, a medication designed to treat two types of eye problems called wet age-related macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema.

Created in partnership with Grey Health, ‘A Beautiful Sight’ honors mothers and caregivers dedicated to preserving their sight. Inspired by real stories and featuring innovative animation techniques, the short celebrates the bond between a mother and her son, their shared vision for the world and the profound impact of community in the face of vision loss. It narrates the importance of caring for our loved ones, especially when faced with challenges like wet age-related macular degeneration.
