Floward has launched a Mother’s Day campaign called “Gift the mum in your life.” The unique campaign utilizes the anti-ad format where it speaks directly to the audience and it also aims at breaking certain stereotype surrounding mothers and how they are normally always portrayed in the media. The ad portrays different types of mothers and mother figures and encourages people to show their gratitude and appreciation.
Floward CEO Abdulaziz Al Loughani said, “Mother’s Day is a special day for everyone, it’s a day to acknowledge and celebrate our mothers for their endless hard work and sacrifice. This year, we wanted to celebrate not only mothers but also mother figures. Sadly, there are families who have lost their mothers, but we know that there are women in those families who stepped up and took on this role. These are often neglected and taken for granted so we wanted to draw attention to them and thank them as well.
Additionally, with Mother’s Day falling on the same month as International Women’s Day, we wanted to celebrate women as well by having a campaign that was conceptualized and executed by a full-female team, in an effort to empower women and highlight their talents and capabilities.”
Floward also held different activations focused on celebrating women in the different countries it operates in. In Bahrain, it collaborated with Fitness First gym to hold women only classes where it distributed flowers to women participants. Additionally, it collaborated with Baskin Robbins to gift flowers to their visitors on International Women’s Day.
It also highlighted influential and accomplished women from across the GCC on all its social media platform and gifted them beautiful flower bouquets.
