'Mum And Dad' Father's Day Card Goes Viral For All The Right Reasons

Father's Day is a day meant to celebrate dads for all they do for us, and finally we're getting a bit more inclusive when it comes to the choice of greeting cards available.

High street retailer Card Factory are celebrating all different types of dads this year, with a card that's quickly gone viral thanks to its unique words.

The front of the card reads: "Thank you for being a mum and dad to me. I know it's Father's Day, but you have been both a mother and a father to me...Like a mum, you've nurtured and comforted me, spent sleepless nights worrying over me and made sure I always had a home and place to belong. Like a dad, you've encouraged me, supported me, advised me and always made me feel safe, protected and confident..."

The card isn't just for the man of the house, it would also make a perfect thank-you for mums and basically anyone else who's played the role of a parent.

A pic of the card was uploaded to Facebook where it soon garnered a lot of attention.

One commenter said: "Aww how lovely this could be for an aunt or relative or foster carer too."

Another commented: "Love this."

More and more retailers are recognising that families come in all different forms.

Last year, Sainsburys was praised for selling same-sex Valentine's Day and Mother's Day cards.

Along with this Father's Day card, Card Factory are also selling cards for people wanting to recognise their two dads.

In partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, purchasing this card also means you're supporting their charity.

It's a win-win!

Card Factory's new Father's Day card is definitely going to get people reaching for the tissues as different types of "dads" get recognition.
