SECURA Insurance launched a unique insurance product for a class of business last year — Tattoos and Body Piercings — which is available to businesses through the company’s independent agency partners. Introducing this special coverage also inspired a charitable giveaway, the “I Heart SECURA Charity Challenge.”
To participate, SECURA’s independent agents submitted photos online sporting temporary tattoos. The company selected three winners at random to receive $5,000 donations for local charities of their choice. The winners were announced on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017.
- Al Torstrick Insurance Agency of Lexington, Ky. donated $5,000 to the Urban League of Lexington-Fayette County
- Insurance Service Center of Marshfield, Wis. donated $4,000 to Cruise for a Cause and $1,000 to Marshfield Area Pet Shelter
- Minnesota Famers Union Insurance Agency donated $5,000 to Minnesota Farmers Union Charity
“The real winners are the nonprofit organizations and the causes they serve,” said Kevin Klestinski, Vice President of Specialty Lines. “The tattoos were temporary, but our commitment to protecting businesses and making charitable investments are permanent.”
Participating agents enjoyed engaging their own associates in the fun. Ali Torstrick Johnson, Operations Manager of Al Torstrick Insurance Agency in Lexington, KY shared, “We have been an independent SECURA agent since 2010, and its Specialty Lines division has given us the ability to write some tougher accounts, with the same care and knowledge as more standard businesses.”
“You don’t usually see insurance, tattoos, and donations in the same sentence, and that was part of the fun,” said Klestinski. “We had a chance to partner with our independent agents and celebrate our shared interest in the communities we serve and highlight our latest Specialty Lines products.”
According to Torstrick Johnson, “This campaign appealed to us because we are always looking for ways to give back to our Central Kentucky community. Being a small business ourselves, we don’t always have large dollar amounts to contribute, so when we see an opportunity to win a donation, we get excited.”
