"What Matters Most to Me" Facebook App and Contest

Just like every month in the life of a mom, September is full of milestones and special moments. From first-day-of-school photos to Labor Day barbecues, these are the moments that we'll cherish forever. September is also Life Insurance Awareness Month (LIAM), which is the perfect time to think about protecting the most important people in our lives.

While life insurance might not be top-of-mind for most moms, we can all agree that it offers peace of mind and helps ensure that the life we've worked so hard to achieve for our loved ones won't disappear if something were to happen to us. The LIFE Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping consumers make smart insurance decisions, recognizes that it's hard to imagine the unimaginable.

That's why they have created the new Facebook Application called "What Matters Most to Me" and are sponsoring a contest around it during September.

The "What Matters Most to Me" App allows us to indulge in our love of sharing photos and memories with our family and friends. In a matter of minutes, the App helps you easily create a multimedia slideshow - pictures, captions and music! - showcasing the important people and things in your life. When you create and post your multimedia masterpiece on Facebook through September 30, you are eligible to win a trip to Aruba, where the winner and one guest will spend five days enjoying the white sands and blue waters in this tropical paradise, and relaxing at the Radisson Resort, Casino & Spa.

And don't forget to show off your slideshow and make a difference in the process! For every friend on Facebook who indicates that they "like" your slideshow, $1 will be donated to Comfort Zone Camp, the nation's largest bereavement camp serving children who've lost a parent, sibling or primary caregiver.

Twitter fun

Since "fun" is on the list of what matters most to us, we'll also be holding weekly Twitter giveaways, sponsored by the LIFE Foundation. Starting today and ending September 23rd, join @MomTalkRadio on Twitter every Thursday from 4-5 p.m. EST, using the #MattersMost hashtag. One winner will be chosen during every session to win a $25 gift card!
