Stafford Springs, CT (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
Paradiso Insurance, an independent insurance agency in Stafford, Connecticut, is proud to announce a new partnership with the Children's Hospital in Hartford, CT. They are joining together in a program called Miles for Smiles, which began October 1 and will run through December 1, 2009.
President of Paradiso Insurance, Chris Paradiso, will be going to the children's hospital on Dec. 1 with hopes of delivering a gift basket for each child staying in the hospital. The gift baskets will contain Legos, Play-Doh, crayons, coloring books, and a CD of kid's stories. This will be made possible by Paradiso's ongoing efforts to raise money for the children in his community and as well as the children staying in the hospital.
The goal of Miles for Smiles is to give the children a reason to smile and forget about their illnesses. Paradiso, and his staff, are motivated to make this program a success across the country, recruiting other insurance agencies to participate in the program. Paul T. Murphy Insurance Agency Inc., of Malden, Massachusetts, has jumped onboard in support of Paradiso's efforts.
Paradiso and Murphy are both e-agents of the digital marketing company Astonish Results. Paradiso will target other Astonish agents in his pursuit of taking Miles for Smiles nationwide.
Donations of money, the items listed above, and other toys, are very much appreciated and can be dropped off at Paradiso Insurance at 8 East Main St. Stafford, CT 06076. Visit their website at http://www.paradisoinsurance.com.
