GREENVILLE, S.C. (April 26, 2011) – Gerber Childrenswear’s campaign, “Many Faces of Mom” is in full swing for the members of its Real Mom Community on Facebook. The campaign enables moms to recognize and be recognized by other moms, participate in our opinion poll, receive valuable money-saving coupons, win mommy-indulgent giveaways and talk to moms with similar interests. Prizes will be awarded through Mother’s Day, May 8, 2011 with the full campaign ending May 31, 2011.
Gerber Childrenswear knows that all moms are not the same. The reality of being a mom is that she wears many different faces. The “Many Faces of Mom” campaign celebrates this and gives moms a way to connect by sharing experiences and engaging with other moms; moms who understand exactly what they’re going through.

Campaign Promotions and Products: To introduce “Many Faces of Mom” and get the opinions of the Real Mom Community, we launched a lighthearted poll on the Facebook page. The polling tool allows moms to see what other moms think with regards to “What Type of Real Mom Are You?”, “What face are you wearing today?” and other mom-related questions. All participants receive a $2 off coupon just for participating in our poll.
To add to the fun on the page, moms can also choose from a series of badges. These can be sent to friends as well as being posted on her own Facebook wall.
“The excitement and engagement that our Real Mom Community has shown in response to the “Many Faces of Mom” campaign just reinforces that moms need a place to go, share and be recognized for doing the most important job there is,” said Jeanne Dullea, Vice President of Business Development for Gerber Childrenswear LLC, a leading marketer of children’s apparel and related products.
Gerber Childrenswear launched the Real Mom Community in 2010 as a place for moms to connect with each other. “The Gerber brand has been trusted for more than 80 years, and we are proud that our reach has extended to our Real Mom Community on Facebook. Our Real Mom members have embraced the community where like-minded moms can share ideas on swaddling a baby, offer potty training tips or just show off photos of their little ones,” said Dullea. Joining gives moms access to exclusive Gerber Childrenswear promotions and coupons, plus the chance to enter into Gerber Childrenswear’s sweepstakes.
