Join the LIFE Foundation to Support Life Insurance Awareness Month!

September is Insurance Awareness month.  Do you have insurance?  Is your family covered if a what if happens?  Are you protected? 

As a Mom I know how scary it is to think of what could happen to your family.  I am so thankful each day that I do not have to use our insurance that means we are safe, sound and hopefully happy.  I know first hand that things happen when you least expect them, of course who prepares for an accidental death or injury?  Who wants to think about the worst things that can happen, the devastation the what ifs.  I know I do not!  It's not pleasant to think about what if something happens, but if you have a family it is something you can't afford to ignore.

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.

For every photo uploaded to the mosaic $1.00 be donated to the Life Lessons Scholarship Program.  Simply visit the Life Foundation on Facebook ( ) and upload 1 or even up to 20 photos.  Add a caption describing whose in the photo and what they mean to you. Facebook has a step by step process..  It's easy you will have no complication with it. 

No one thinks let me buy life insurance because I am definitely going to need that soon.  But with life insurance if that unthinkable happens your family is safeguarded.  You can breathe a little bit easier if you know that in the face of tragedy your family will be provided for. 

Help out a good cause and add your photo the life lessons scholarship fund.
