Helping daughters connect with their mothers through Newsfeed SmartApp for Dettol on Mother's Day

What did you do this Mother’s Day? Some of us might have sent our mothers presents, taken them out for a meal or bought them a nice greeting card. This Mother’s Day, UM Dubai partnered with Newsfeed SmartApps to run a unique GIF creator campaign for Dettol.

Dettol as a brand has always been loved by mothers who always think about protecting their own children from germs. This time, we wanted those children to thank their mothers by telling them what their ‘Happiest moment with their mom was”, and to wish them with a personal message.
