National Wildlife Foundation to Receive Aid from Auto Insurance Co.

Body of waterElephant, a Virginia-based auto insurance company, is doing its part to help the efforts to clean up the gulf oil spill with its Give for the Gulf program. The company announced that it will be donating $10 to the National Wildlife Foundation, which has been helping to restore the gulf since April 20, for every  insurance quote the company generates until the end of July.

Elephant CEO Andrew Rose says that, as a former Louisiana resident, the cause hits home for him.

“This is one small way that our auto insurance company can create an opportunity for consumers to help us give back,” Rose stated. “There is no cost or obligation to the consumer — we’d love to save them money on their auto insurance online, but even if we don’t we still want to give to cleanup efforts.”

Large amounts of resources have been directed to cleaning up the areas affected by the gulf oil spill. In addition to the National Wildlife Foundation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has been working tirelessly to test water and air quality in the affected areas to ensure human, plant and animal safety.
