Debenhams Mothers Day

British retailer Debenhams this year ran a Mother’s Day promotion, calling on viewers to make their mums feel special on Mother’s Day, celebrated on April 3 in the UK. A television commercial presents children and adults calling out to their mothers in their time of need. The ad finishes with the line, “Make whats-her-name feel special this Mother’s Day”, and takes viewers to a Feel Special microsite where they can send the film as a personalised movie e-card. Debenhams donated 5% of the price of online orders to the charity Breast Cancer Campaign when purchases were placed via the e-card page.
