Mother’s Day is almost here & many of us are making new traditions.
WBUR’s newest tradition is letting our listeners send heartfelt audio cards from some of NPR & WBUR’s most beloved personalities. WBUR isn’t offering Mother’s Day flowers this year due to limited resources nationwide, but we value our partnership with Winston Flowers and look forward to working with them in the future.
Instead, our Membership team worked hard to create this completely unique experience that anyone can enjoy from the comfort and safety of their own home. Hosts and personalities from our station and from across the nation have shared heartfelt, personal stories that celebrate mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends.
Each audio card is different in tone and tenor, but they are all perfect for sharing love & appreciation — especially since many of our loved ones aren’t as nearby as we might like.
Do something meaningful by sending a heartfelt audio card that supports public radio. These messages from your favorite public radio personalities are perfect for sharing love & appreciation. Donate any amount, choose and customize your card, and we’ll send it to your loved one on the day of your choice.
Here are a few examples of what you'll find:
Marie Louise shares the gratitude she feels for all the things her mother taught her—how to travel, how to love adventure, and how to be kind—while passing along those warm feelings to your loved one.
Ray’s signature warmth and authenticity shines through as he shares little memories about his own mother Lizzy, and how she made him who he is today. This card is the right choice for Car Talk fans and for people who make us better over time.
Bob’s mom was full of wisdom; his message in this card is full of happy memories and gratitude. If you’ve got a plant-lover who appreciates the kind of good company that only public radio can provide, you’ll want to send them this card.
There’s something for everyone. Check out wbur.org/mom to listen to the actual audio and to send a card!
