Each year, the Notre Dame Alumni Association distributes free postcards for students, faculty, and staff to write and send messages to the mother figures in their lives. This year, we asked five students to write and narrate their cards on camera.

Starting Tuesday, visit this page and our FacebookInstagram, and Twitter channels each day in the lead-up to Mother's Day for a new video celebrating Notre Dame moms.
