InsuranceBusters.net has made a commitment of giving back to the community. We have accomplished this goal by creating our new pilot program, “Bustin4Relief”. We will donate 100% of the profits, up to $5,000.00, of every 15th claim we adjust. Now, you have to remember, we are new, so at first, this number may not look that appealing, but let’s take a look back one year from the licensing date, and check our totals, you’ll be surprised, we will have given a lot of people our time, resources, and money in effort to try and make our world a better place to live. Our staff firmly believes in giving and have raised our children to do the same. Below are just a few of the charities that have benefited from us.
If you have a charity you would like to suggest to us, then please take a moment and complete the form below:
Boys & Girls Clubs of America had its beginnings in 1860 with several women in Hartford, Conn. Believing that boys who roamed the streets should have a positive alternative, they organized the first Club. A cause was born.
In 1906, several Boys Clubs decided to affiliate. The Federated Boys Clubs in Boston was formed with 53 member organizations – this marked the start of a nationwide Movement.
In 1931, the Boys Club Federation of America became Boys Clubs of America.
In 1956, Boys Clubs of America celebrated its 50th anniversary and received a U.S. Congressional Charter.
To recognize the fact that girls are a part of our cause, the national organization’s name was changed to Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 1990. Accordingly, Congress amended and renewed our charter.
2006 marked the Centennial year of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, as we celebrated 100 years of providing hope and opportunity to young people across the country.
Character development has been the cornerstone of the Boys & Girls Club experience since the first Club opened in 1860. The first Club professional, John Collins, devised a system of informal guidance to attract boys into the Club, capture their interest, improve their behavior and increase their personal expectations and goals.
The procedures Collins used constituted a clearly planned, socially scientific system of taking boys off the street and promoting their development towards a successful, productive future. This system formed the basis of the Boys & Girls Club environment. It is still in use today with proven results.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America believes that character development, the basic building block in personal development, should be an integral aspect of every Club program and activity. In support of this conviction, Aaron Fahringer, a regional director for the west coast in the 1950s, scripted the Boys & Girls Club Code as part of the celebration of the golden anniversary of the Movement. The code was adopted as official by the National Council in 1955, and was used extensively in the 50s and 60s. The Code is still displayed in many Clubs today.
The Boys & Girls Club Code
I believe in God and the right to worship according to my own faith and religion.
I believe in America and the American way of life…in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
I believe in fair play, honesty and sportsmanship.
I believe in my Boys & Girls Club, which stands for these things.
Children’s Miracle Network is a charity that raises funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals. Donations to Children’s Miracle Network are used to provide charitable care, purchase life-saving equipment, and fund research and education programs that save and improve the lives of 17 million children each year.
Founded in 1983 by Marie Osmond, John Schneider, Mick Shannon and Joe Lake, Children’s Miracle Network entered the scene as a nationally televised Telethon. The organization has since evolved into a worldwide force in fundraising, raising nearly $4 billion over the past 27 years.
Every child deserves the hope and healing of children’s hospitals. With the help of a Children’s Miracle Network hospital in their community, children of all ages and backgrounds can receive treatment for every imaginable disease and injury—from asthma and broken bones to cancer and heart defects. Children’s hospitals are also on the front lines of research, education and outreach programs that keep millions of kids out of the hospital each year.
This year alone, Children’s Miracle Network hospitals will provide charity care worth billions, yet these children’s hospitals depend on community support to help fund their vital services.
To ensure children’s hospitals have the resources they need, Children’s Miracle Network’s partners conduct thousands of special events and grassroots fundraisers year-round. Corporate partners sell Miracle Balloons, radio and television stations broadcast stories of medical miracles, and college students hold Dance Marathons—just a few of the programs generating millions of dollars each year to provide the life-saving care and crucial services kids need.
On May 26, 1961, President Kennedy set a rather ambitious goal for our country. He announced that his vision was for us to send an American safely to the Moon and return safely back to Earth before the end of the decade. Not an easy thing to do. To some of us, it seemed impossible, right? But by 1969, we got there. The President’s vision became a reality. And ending senior hunger in America by 2020 can become our reality. All we need is the leadership and will power to get it done.
You can be a leader in this national movement by volunteering for a local Meals On Wheels program, generating awareness about the problem of senior hunger in America, making a donation, supporting Meals On Wheels programs in their fundraising efforts, sharing your thoughts on how we can end senior hunger together by 2020 and by doing anything else that you can to provide The Next Meal “so no senior goes hungry.”®
This is our movement,
President and CEO
