On the 10th of May, Families For Life will be hosting a series of specially curated content on their Facebook page. These include fun-filled Mother’s Day-themed activities for families such as storytelling, interactive song and dance performances as well as baking activities. The day's programme ends with a special hour-long online show dedicated to Mummies!
Appreciation To Mummies During CB Period
This Mother’s Day will be like no other. With circuit breaker measures in place, mothers have had to take on multiple roles at home. These range from juggling the household and getting used to working at home, to helping children with their home-based learning while caring for elderly parents.
Some mothers, especially the elderly, cannot be with their children who live in separate households on this special day. FFL is rallying families to honour and celebrate mothers in Singapore on this special day through a series of online programmes.
Homemade for Mums
The highlight of the day is “Homemade for Mums”, an online show which will be streamed live at 8pm. The hour-long concert will feature local favourite singers like Liu Ling Ling, Angie Lau, Jason Chung, Kelvin Soo, Aisyah Aziz, Isaac Ong, and Joanna Dong.
Expect a mass-singing segment, when the nation will be asked to sing “Happy Mother’s Day” in unison, to the tune of “Happy Birthday”. Near the end of the show will be “The Mother’s Moment” where families are encouraged to call their own mothers, whether through phone or video calls, to express their personal appreciation for the mothers, and all their mothers do for them.
Contribute Your Dedications

Before the "Homemade for Mums" show, families will be asked to post their dedications to their mothers on Facebook and hashtag them #FFLMothersDay. These dedications could be in the form of short video clips, photographs or short messages.
During the show, there will be special appearances by Kit Chan, Stefanie Sun and JJ Lin who will read out some of the submitted Mother’s Day dedications. Families can also submit videos of themselves singing along to the songs during the online show, and these will be stitched into a tribute video (to be aired on Mediacorp TV channels at 8.30pm and 10.30pm)!
