P&G Honors Olympians And Their Moms: Get The Tissues Out

The Thank You Mom campaign is one that I literally cannot watch without bawling my eyes out. I rarely talk about advertisement campaigns – but these just hit home and hit home so hard for obvious reasons.

P&G Kicks-Off The 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games 'Thank You, Mom' Campaign With A Screening Of Their 'Raising An Olympian' Films

The Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games are just about 100 days away and to celebrate some of this year’s top athletes have joined the P&G Family to help support their Thank You, Mom campaign. Why? Simply because they no that no athlete gets to the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games alone, and the campaign celebrates the Moms who helped get them there.

Earlier this week, P&G hosted an event where they honored Olympians Lindsey Vonn, Evan Lysacek, Julie Chu and Taylor Lipsett – and their moms – and celebrated the hardest, but most rewarding job: Being Mom. 

Part of the campaign pays tribute to Moms around the world through the Raising an Olympian film series.

Who: Lindsey Vonn (Alpine Ski Racer) and mom Lindy Lund

Evan Lysacek (Figure Skater) and mom Tanya Lysacek

Julie Chu (Ice Hockey) and mom Miriam Chu

Taylor Lipsett (Sled Hockey) and mom Cheryl Lipsett
