Gerber Life Supports Reading is Fundamental and $25 Snapfish Giveaway!!

Gerber Life Insurance is proud to introduce you to their insurance products and give you information about how they support the Reading is Fundamental (RIF) program. Gerber Life Insurance was started in 1967 to help young families provide insurance for the youngest in their family. Gerber is a name that we all know we can trust.

Gerber recently unfolded their Project Open Door program which is a facebook program that promotes and helps Reading is Fundamental (RIF). Facebook fans can upload a picture of their child to the Gerber life facebook page and be entered to win a $1000 visa gift card. For every photo uploaded Gerber will donate $1.00 to RIF. That's awesome!

Because of Gerber's Grow up and College plans the fit with RIF seemed like a natural blending of two great programs. You can't get to college without literacy. Gerber wants to encourage all youngsters to get involved with reading and parents to get involved with saving for college. Project Open Book begins on January 13 and will continue until February 19 with a goal of $10000 to go to RIF. A randomly chosen winner from the uploaded photos will be picked to win a grand prize: $1000 Visa gift card or two first place winners: $500 Visa gift card.

Gerber found a need and is trying to fill it. In lower income homes there is only one age appropriate book in 300 homes. This is the niche they are trying so hard to reach. Reading is such an important aspect of our life, and I'm not just saying that because I am a former reading teacher either. :) RIF's partnership with Gerber Life's Project Open Book hopes to build a nation of engaged readers. As a teacher and a parent of 3, isn't that what we all want?

Gerber has been kind enough to share a $25 Snapfish giveaway with our friends. Thank you Gerber! You can't win if you don't enter!!
