This Mother’s Day, Hallmark Channel, America’s premier family-friendly entertainment company, is pulling double duty in not only celebrating the moms we love, but also the soldiers who protect our freedoms every day with the Hallmark Channel in HD Original Movie “Meet My Mom,” premiering Saturday, May 8 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C).
As the film’s premiere approaches, Hallmark Channel is seizing the opportunity to celebrate moms and, in particular, military families, Hallmark Channel’s Facebook page will play host to a unique ‘Meet My Mom Virtual Wall,’ where not only viewers, but soldiers serving in all parts of the world, can submit photos, testimonials and videos as a tribute to their own moms.
Beginning March 17, soldiers can go to and upload photos of them and their moms, 60 second videos or text testimonials. The interactive forum will go live on April 19 for all to see, and is just a small way to connect families who are far apart this Mother’s Day.
