3x TIMES the MONEY that CALFEE raises will go to 'ONE FUND'
So here's the scoop-
The Arthur D. Calfee Insurance Agency, Inc. is proud to join the business community to support those most affected by the tragic events at the Boston Marathon.
The Arthur D. Calfee Insurance Agency, with offices located in the Homeport Office Complex at 336 Gifford Street in Falmouth and across the street of the North Falmouth Ball Field at 121 County Road will be raising money for the Boston Strong - 'One Fund.'
From now, April 29th to June 1st, 2013, the Arthur D. Calfee Insurance Agency will be raising 'One Fund' to turn in to 'One' large supporter who has agreed to match 3x TIMES the amount raised by Calfee Insurance, meaning they will match donations on a $3 to $1 basis up to $1,000 in total from the supporter.
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino have announced the formation of 'The One Fund Boston, Inc.' to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.

Cost of amputating a leg? At least $20,000. Cost of an artificial leg? More than $50,000 for the most high-tech models. Cost of an amputee's rehab? Often tens of thousands of dollars more.
These are just a fraction of the medical expenses victims of the Boston Marathon bombing will face.
The mammoth price tag is probably not what patients are focusing on as they begin the long healing process. But friends and strangers are already setting up fundraisers and online crowd-funding sites, and a huge Boston city fund has already collected more than $23 million in individual and corporate donations.
No one knows yet if those donations – plus health insurance, hospital charity funds and other sources – will be enough to cover the bills. Few will even hazard a guess as to what the total medical bill will be for a tragedy that killed three people and wounded more than 260. At least 15 people lost limbs, and other wounds include head injuries and tissue torn apart by shrapnel.

Hurricane 2012 Update

All interests from Louisiana to Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle should rush preparations to completion.
If peak storm surge occurs at high tide, peak water levels above ground could reach the following depths as Isaac moves by:
- Southeast Louisiana, Miss., Ala. coasts: 6-12 feet
- South-central Louisiana: 3-6 feet
- Florida Panhandle: 3-6 feet
- Florida west coast from Apalachicola to south of Naples: 1-3 feet
Even as Isaac's center of circulation moves by, locally heavy rainbands can be expected. Another 1-3" of rain is possible in central and south Florida with locally higher amounts. Isolated storm total rainfalls of 15" are possible in central and South Florida. Rainfall amounts over 10" are likely as Isaac slows down immediately prior to, and after landfall, in southeast Louisiana, southern Alabama, Mississippi and the western Florida Panhandle. Isolated 20" amounts are possible.

In the span of 13 months between August 2004 and September 2005, eight major hurricanes ravaged Florida and the U.S. Gulf Coast. And right in the midst of all of it were Don Cronin and his staff at United Property & Casualty Insurance Co.
“We had never dealt with a hurricane,” says Cronin, president and CEO of the St. Petersburg-based company, which generated $155 million in gross written premiums in 2009 and more than $88 million in revenue. “The company was founded in 1999, and the first hurricane we dealt with was in August 2004. The departments all had to come together. It wasn’t just on the claims side. It was finance, marketing, underwriting, all the different areas basically reaching out to help each other. Whether it was answering the phone, stuffing envelopes, delivering checks to people who had lost their properties, they did it all, and without any complaints. And we just went from one storm to the next. It was seven days a week.”
As the Atlantic and Caribbean delivered blow after blow, leaving untold dollars in ruined property and untold numbers of ruined lives behind, Cronin saw a ray of hope in how his own company bonded together, embracing a culture of teamwork in an effort to serve affected customers and communities.
“Insurance is a piece of paper with a lot of promises on it,” he says. “There aren’t a lot of opportunities to fulfill those promises. But eight times when we needed to, we filled those promises in a very short period.”
Through the challenging times, Cronin says he learned a lot about how a company can band together to serve a greater cause than the bottom line. And it reinforced to him the importance of creating and sustaining a culture of teamwork and collaboration.
It’s a culture rooted in communication from the top of the company, communication between departments and locations, and a willingness from all parties to listen as much as they talk.
