Local funeral homes— the professionals who deal with death every day— are encouraging people to “Plan to Live.” Life is short, and one way to make it more enjoyable is to plan for the future now. To help spread that message, Simplicity Plan providers across the country are asking this question: “Life is short. What would make yours sweeter?”
Anyone who answers and shares his or her special dream of a lifetime, whether it’s climbing Mount Everest, seeing the Seven Wonders of the World or going to a Super Bowl, will have the chance to win the one, overall grand prize of $10,000 to help make that dream come true. Also, this nationwide giveaway offers 225 additional prizes.

Here’s how it works: Through March 31, the public can enter the giveaway two ways:
1. Visit any funeral home or cemetery that is a Simplicity Plan provider and fill in and submit a printed entry form.
2. Visit and enter online.

Plan to Live Giveaway Prizes include:
Grand Prize — One Grand-Prize winner will receive $10,000 to help grant his or her dream of a lifetime.
Second Prize — 50 winners will win Simplicity Plan memberships.
Third Prize — 75 winners will get a DVD of The Bucket List movie, starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.
Fourth Prize — 100 winners will receive the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die by Patricia Schultz.
