With all the shuttling moms do day in and day out, it's no wonder they get burned out from all that running around in the car. Now Chrysler is going to award one lucky mom (or other deserving family member) a chauffeur for the day.
Part of the 30th anniversary celebration of the Chrysler Town & Country, the Mom's Day Off contest allows individuals to post on Twitter, Instagram or Vine, using the hashtags #Chauffeur and #MomsDayOff to give a family member the chance to win a Town & Country minivan and a personal chauffeur for the day to take over the family's driving needs.

"Scheduling family events and getting our children where they need to be on time is a 24/7/365 day job for usually one person in the household," says Bruce Velisek, head of Town & Country marketing, Chrysler Group LLC. "Providing a Town & Country for the day was our way of not just saying 'thank you' to Mom or Dad or whoever that deserving person is in your home, but also to give them the opportunity to spend more time with their families. How often have you wished you could be in the back seat with your child enjoying a movie instead of driving? This is our way our making that possible.”

The winner of the contest will be announced on June 9.

Being a private chauffeur can come with a substantial salary, not to mention some unique perks. Check them out at "5 ways to work for the rich, avoid being poor."
