CINCINNATI -- May 09, 2013

(NYSE: PG) – With Mother’s Day just around the corner, children often struggle
to come up with the perfect gift to show Mom they are loved. But in a survey
conducted by P&G, moms indicated that every day gestures are more meaningful
than annual fancy gifts. Eighty-seven percent of those surveyed would prefer
to have a little more time to themselves, a family day out, or a little more
unprompted help around the house. Eighty-three percent said this would make
them feel more appreciated and loved, even if it is just a simple ‘Thank you’
for all the things she does for the family.

Tide®, Bounty® and Olay®, shares its fourth video in the Everyday Effect

video, called The Mommy Effect, taps in to the universal truth that seemingly
ordinary, everyday acts have a surprisingly significant impact.

story of how Mom’s everyday acts of kindness help you. Some of these stories
will used in P&G’s first ever piece of consumer created ads, to be showcased
