Minute Maid’s #doingood campaign is back with a new digital film featuring U.S. Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin, who surprises her parents during a press conference in a Denver aquatics center by reading a heartfelt thank-you letter.
The #doingood campaign, now in its second year, reminds parents of all the things – big and small – they do every day to make a positive difference in their children’s lives. The creative
Every day is a good day to thank your mother
for all she’s done for you, but busy schedules make it easy to forget. That’s
why Coca-Cola has created a touching video reminding sons and daughters to call
home on Mother’s Day.
“Inseparable” is an interactive video
experience that tugs at the heartstrings of mother and child, celebrates the
emotional journey they share, and ends with a simple message: “This Mother’s

While in Atlanta for a workshop
in 2010, my friend and colleague, Ana Castillo, showed me a black-and-white photo

My mom, Sharyn Perkins, has been working for The Coca-Cola Company for 19 years, so we grew up as a Coca-Cola family. All
of us are Coca-Cola fans to the max, so we sure lived up being ambassadors for
the company. From running Atlanta's Peachtree Road Race every year with our Coke shirts to passing out
Coca-Cola products in fun Halloween gift bags in October, we had Coca-Cola love
going on year-round. I can clearly remember dancing to the “Always
Mother's Day 2014 is right around the corner, but Coca-Cola has been celebrating moms for decades. For this Throwback Thursday, take a look back at some of Coke's classic ads honoring mothers - and get some inspiration from the stories we're publishing today, too!
Many a teenager would deny it, but mom’s influence — particularly
when it comes to food — is far reaching. And it starts as early as three
months after conception.
While still in the womb, babies get a sense of what mom is eating, and they absorb those flavors through amniotic fluid and, later, through mother’s milk.
Even if children go through various stages of pickiness, mom's
preferences persist, at least on some level. Even when
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, it’s time
again to do something special that honors our mothers, who in my opinion are
the most special people on the planet. As we order our Mother’s Day presents

clever conglomeration of florists and greeting card companies, the modern-day
celebration of motherhood was actually introduced by one woman, Anna Jarvis, in the early-1900s. After the death of her own mother, she fought hard to make Mother's Day
a national holiday. It was made official by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914.
Since then, the holiday has spread to many

Elle Oser has made sandwiches for the homeless, sorted canned goods at a food
bank, run in support of breast cancer awareness, and helped create a reading
