We do everything we can to protect our kids, but as parents, are you ready for the unexpected? Will your family and kids be able to manage without you? Although it is a difficult topic to discuss with your spouse, but I am a believe that it is better to be prepared than not. September is Life Insurance Awareness Month, making it the perfect time to think about protecting the most important people in our lives.
The nonprofit LIFE Foundation sponsors Life Insurance Awareness Month in response to the growing problem of too many families not having adequate life insurance protection. According to the industry research group LIMRA, 11 million U.S. households with children under age 18 have no coverage. Those families are just one illness or accident away from a financial crisis, and something needs to be done about it. That's why LIFE has created the "Insure Your Love Picture Mosaic" in support of Life Insurance Awareness Month.
The "Insure Your Love Picture Mosaic" is designed to recognize and celebrate those who have made the responsible decision to protect their loved ones by owning life insurance, while also introducing them to a larger community of others who have made the same choice. People are encouraged to upload up to 20 photos of their loved ones, whose financial future has been safeguarded by their decision to purchase life insurance.
By adding your photos to the mosaic, you will also be helping out a great cause. For each photo uploaded, $1 will be donated to the LIFE Lessons Scholarship Program, which provides tuition assistance to students who have lost a parent and are struggling to achieve their dream of a college education.
Uploading a photo is very easy. Simply visit Life Happens Facebook Wall. First, "like" Life Happens, then click on "Mosaic" on the left, then click on "Click to get Started." You will then be taken to a page where you can upload your photos. Remember that for each photo you upload, $1 will be donated to a scholarship program for a child in pursuit of higher education. Just a few click and you can contribute to a great cause. Be sure to visit Life Happens Facebook today!
