What a Life!

For the past 15 years, the LIFE Foundation ("a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping consumers make smart insurance decisions to safeguard their families’ financial futures") and Newsweek (the magazine) have co-sponsored a campaign to highlight how life insurance has helped to make a difference in the lives of real people.

Last year, FoIB Nick Perry shared his own family's moving story with us. Perhaps you have a similar experience. Agents can submit their entry for this year's award:

"Agents have until March 31, 2010 to submit a short essay describing how the benefits of insurance, along with their advice and assistance, made a big difference in a client's life at a time of great financial need. An independent panel of judges will select four stories to be featured in a September 2010 special advertising section in Newsweek magazine, seen by nearly 13 million readers. In addition to the Newsweek special feature, each of the award recipients and their clients, along with a guest, will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Seattle, Wash., Sept. 11-14, 2010."

I've asked the folks running this if a consumer can "nominate" his or her agent for services "above and beyond;" we'll let you know if that's an option.
