When you think of an insurance company, it’s easy to picture people in suits sitting rigidly behind cubicles, focusing on the bottom line. Protect Your Bubble works to be different; we care about the things that you care about, so we work to help you protect them with great coverage and without the typical hassle of fine print and paperwork. One of the big things we care about is the community around us; here are just a few things our team members are working on now to give back:
Climbing for a cause
Stephen Ebbett, former-Brit-turned-Atlanta-resident and the Global Head of Direct Distribution for Protect Your Bubble, underwent major knee surgery earlier this year. As a Rugby player and all around active guy, one of the hardest things for Stephen about his surgery was the recovery and the inability to use his leg. Now, Stephen is putting his rehabilitated knee to good use–He’s climbing 5 mountains in Ecuador to raise money for LimbPower, a group that works to help people who have permanently lost limbs and to offer relief to the physically disabled by aiding rehabilitation and through recreational and competitive sports and arts.
Fighting for the memories
Katherine, one of the newest Protect Your Bubble team members, may not be ready to climb mountains, but this Web Content Manager loves to walk for a cause. Katherine works with Single Volunteers Atlanta on many projects, most recently on their partnership with the “Forget me Nots” in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Atlanta. Katherine also volunteers with Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption, a non-profit no-kill shelter in the Atlanta area (If you’ve adopted a pet recently, look into our pet insurance to help them have a long, healthy, happy life!)
Marketing the future
Kyle Davenport, one of our fantastic Product Managers, works to help others build their education for a future in marketing by volunteering with The University of Georgia’s Executive Marketing Board. Kyle is currently helping to develop a marketing course that will help prepare marketing students for tasks in their future careers. He also is helping to build an internship program to help students get involved with marketing early on in their studies.
Lending a helping hand overseas
As the Director of Product, David Anderson has a big heart for Protect Your Bubble products and for giving our customers the best service and options possible; he also has a big heart for helping out overseas. David volunteers and supports a group calling Helping Hands and their “Village of Eden,” a self sustaining village built to support orphans and widows in Busia, Uganda.
