Who matters the most in your life? Since Aidan was born, my initiatives have changed drastically. Of course, he instantly became the most important person in my life. When you have a child, it takes more than one person to raise them. It takes a village, literally. The fly by night friendships that were acquired during my first years of college have thinned out to the people who matter most. My husband, my few close girlfriends and my family were left standing. They were all there, all along. I am blessed to have surrounded myself with such amazing people that want nothing but the very best for my marriage, my health and most importantly, my son. I know how rare it is to have such a solid support system in place, and I couldn’t be more thankful for every one of them.
MassMutual is a supporter and believe in the ideal that love is a gift, and the people that matter most deserve it. They have created a social initiative to help spread this message and to celebrate those who mean the most in our lives. Their Love Is A Gift campaign encourages people to make a statement about the power of love, and how it has transformed you. Every photo that gets shared on your public Instagram page, or on MassMutual’s page, using the hashtag #LoveIsAGift, MassMutual will donate $1 to the Easter Seals, up to $50,000! Not sure who the Easter Seals are? They are a nonprofit who supports children and adults with special needs. While I am not the mother of a special needs child, I am the mother of a child who had a rough start in life. Aidan was born two months early and endured many, many months of therapy and specialists appointments. Over the course of three years, I have met amazing individuals who have shown me that love is blind and unconditional, and a gift, above all.
How To Participate In The Love Is A Gift Campaign:
- Find or take a picture of you and the people you love on your computer or mobile device.
- Upload it to your personal Instagram account with #LoveIsAGift or to LoveIsAGift.com, adding a few words about your loved ones and why they matter most.
- Note your Instagram account must be public for your #LoveIsAGift entry to be recognized and trigger a donation.
- Once the photo is uploaded, participants can share their photo and details of the initiative with their friends on Facebook or Twitter.
- Each upload will trigger a $1 donation from MassMutual to Easter Seals, up to $50,000.
MassMutual further brings the initiative to life with its Love Is A Gift video. This video highlights all love being valuable and unique, and conveys the strong bonds that people share with one another. Take a look below!
You can have even more fun with MassMutual by attending their #LoveIsAGift Twitter party. It’s happening Wednesday, November 5th from 11:00am-Noon. While this is a seperate from the #LoveIsAGift photo story initiative, it is still a fun way to participate in a great cause and have a chance to win great Twitter party prizes!
