Support Life Insurance Awareness Month {LIFE Foundation}



298787_10150282538972617_38983337616_8021430_2500901_nAs a mom I spend so much time trying to provide for my children and make sure their basic needs are cared for and beyond and life insurance is a big part of that. I don’t necessarily bring in the bacon in our household but know that there would be a cost to replace me, especially if for some reason both my husband and I went at or around the same time.

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.


To upload your own pictures just head over to the link here on Facebook like the LIFE Happens page and then click on the Mosaic tab on the left hand side to get started. You can upload up to 20 pictures featuring your loved ones and a caption describing who is in the photo and/or why it’s meaningful to you. All submissions will be reviewed and added to the mosaic with 2-3 business days, if approved. Then share with your friends and family so they can add their own too and help add up those donations for the LIFE Lessons Scholarship Program!

Disclosure: I received a gift card for this posting as a part of this promotional program with the LIFE Foundation and MomSelect.
