I’m excited to announce that I have been selected as a Skype Ambassador. This is going to be a fun campaign and I’m excited to share with you my experience and the benefits of using Skype to communicate with your family and friends. Just recently for Mother’s Day I created a fun video to send to my mother using the Skype “Mom You Rock” video creation. It was actually rather fun. I was able to select between three different bands, I then had the option of recording myself to be part of the video. I had planned on doing just that with my daughter but she became camera shy so we settled for a photo. We also had the option of editing the note in the final seconds of the film.
Just because Mother’s Day is over doesn’t mean you should shy away from creating a video for that special woman in your life. You also have the option to send a birthday video but I highly recommend surprising your mom.
For every ‘Mom you Rock’ video you send $1 goes to Save the Children’s Global Action Fund in support of the new MomsTheWord.org campaign.
Check out my own video:
A video chat or greeting is so much more fun then a traditional card, or phone call. What better way to connect with your mother or other family members by letting them see you in person. When my mother-in-law moved back up north the children turned to Skype to video chat with her so she could see them and they could see her. This made their conversations much more personal. My daughter was also able to show her grandmother all the new clothes she got for Christmas. The kids were constantly running into their bedroom to grab something to show their grandmother. Definitely something they couldn’t have done if they were confined to a simple phone call.
