L&G America Can Use a Little Help

Less than a year ago Legal & General America, a MD-based life insurer, announced the launch of a new initiative called ALittleHelp.com, a crowdfunding website, with just transaction fees, dedicated to memorial funds.


That was then:


This is now :


And just like that “A Little Help is no longer accepting new memorial campaigns.” So much for being “sponsored by a company with over 65 years of securing the financial futures of families.”


…Twitter account has been closed:


…Facebook page shut down:


Yet its YouTube channel still offers 39 videos on the topics of community, tragedy and crowdfunding.


Bottom Line: a closed project from the one that hopes to inject life into life insurance via selfies, and a cautionary tale to never create without creative.
