Thanks to our clients, community partners, Tough Warrior Princess on the North Shore of MA, and Safeco Insurance, we had the pleasure of presenting our fellow Tough Warrior Princesses with a big check to put towards all of their efforts in helping families affected by cancer.

We are committed to helping them grow in any way possible, and although a large portion of the thanks belongs to the leadership of Mary Rawson, our Community Outreach Manager, she credits the entire team in their Danvers office for all of their efforts.  As a result, Tough Warrior Princesses will receive a $10,000 donation from Phil Richard Insurance in celebration of the agency earning a 2017 Safeco Insurance® Make More Happen Award for demonstrating extraordinary volunteerism to make positive change happen in their community. The donation will assist with the non-profit’s mission of raising funds for cancer research, educating and enlightening the public on the need to find a cure, and providing support to women and their families impacted by cancer.


Phil Richard Insurance originally received $5,000 for Tough Warrior Princesses through a submission process, and this year, Safeco offered agents an additional opportunity to help the causes they care about most. Jacquelyn Richard, an independent agent for Phil Richard Insurance, and Tough Warrior Princesses had a story about positive community change featured on Safeco.com. Together, they were able to raise an additional $5,000 by their story being shared on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn at least 50 times.


“We appreciate the community support to raise the additional funds and we are honored to be able to provide Tough Warrior Princesses with an even larger donation,” said Cindy Lively, Safeco Insurance Northeast Region territory manager. “Safeco’s Make More Happen Awards recognize agents who are committed to making a difference in their local communities, and we want to encourage them and citizens in their area to directly support local charities.” Read their full story and more about the awards program at www.safeco.com/make-more-happen/winners.


Safeco’s Make More Happen Awards focus on non-profits in the areas of health and safety, education and civil service. Phil Richard Insurance was originally selected for a Make More Happen Award based on a photo and application demonstrating its commitment to Tough Warrior Princesses, which serves the North Shore.


Tough Warrior Princesses will use the awarded funds to assemble fifty additional Survivor Baskets, which include high-value items for cancer patients receiving treatment. Items include gas, acupuncture and restaurant gift cards to skincare products, scented candles, journals, knit caps and more.


Throughout 2017, Safeco will select a total of 23 independent agents for the awards and donate up to $230,000 to the charitable organizations they support. The Make More Happen Awards are a part of Safeco Insurance’s Agent Giving Program.
