October Quotes for a Cause - American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

We are excited to run a monthly Quotes for a Cause campaign. Each month, our agency will be donating $5 per new business quote to a nonprofit or charitable organization, regardless of whether or not the policy is actually purchased.

For the month of October, we partnered alongside the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Each year, suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined. Yet suicide prevention doesn't receive anywhere near the funding as other leading causes of death. We got to support AFSP a month early this year at their annual fundraiser.

The agency participated in the Out of the Darkness Community Walk in September to show support for AFSP. Funds raised from the walk allow the organization to fund research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. Funds from the last two annual walks have been used to sponsor the Crisis Intervention Training program, fund Mental Health First Aid courses and bring suicide prevention programs to area schools. We were proud to be a $1,000 sponsor the walk and walk as a team!
