One of the things I love about blogging is the opportunity to share with you the things that cross my path and that I hear about. Here is one that may seem a bit odd and out of the ordinary for this blog but it's important and I wanted to share it with you.
LIFE Foundation, a non-profit organization, is conducting an awareness campaign and contest over the next few weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day. The idea is that Valentine’s Day has come to be labeled as a “greeting card holiday,” but this year in particular offers the opportunity for people to get back to the holiday’s roots by rethinking what a genuine gift of love is.
So, LIFE wants to make 2009 the year people take a different approach to Valentine’s Day considering life insurance as one of the truly selfless and enduring gifts they can give. It might sound strange, but if you think about it, you buy life insurance for the same reason you celebrate Valentine’s Day…because you love someone! And what better way to express that love than by ensuring they’ll be taken care of should anything happen. The benefits of life insurance benefit loved ones long after the Valentine’s Day flowers have wilted and the chocolates been eaten.
To encourage people to commit selfless acts of love this Valentine’s Day, LIFE is sponsoring an online contest during the weeks leading up to February 14. Anyone over age 18 is invited to nominate a close friend or family member who has exhibited selfless love for a chance to win a variety of prizes, including $2k towards the Cartier Love Collection!
