On Friday, May 11 and Saturday, May 12, local volunteers will be in downtown Seattle gathering signatures to ‘Give Mom a Monday,’ the petition to make Mother’s Day a three day weekend. Volunteers will be outside 607 Pine Street in downtown Seattle, and will be asking people to show their appreciation for moms everywhere by signing a petition that proposes a new holiday to be observed the Monday immediately following Mother’s Day.
Beginning on Saturday April 7, local volunteers collected over 1,000 signatures in downtown Seattle to launch the 'Give Mom a Monday' campaign. This campaign encourages people to show their appreciation for moms everywhere by signing a petition that proposes a new holiday to be observed the Monday immediately following Mother's Day. The campaign has gained momentum online and in Gene Juarez Salon and Spas locations, garnering more than 5,000 signatures so far.
Volunteers are at it again this upcoming weekend for the final push to 'Give Mom a Monday.' The goal by Mother's Day Sunday is 10,000 signatures to take to local and state officials in hopes of officially naming May 14th 'Mother's Day Monday.'
