“Insure Your Love” Month

By | News | No Comments

February is “Insure Your Love” Month!

Protect the ones you love with life insurance from Polish Falcons of America.

Michael, 32, was a fit and healthy family man. As he left to run a 10K race, he kissed his wife, Traci, good-bye along with newborn Calvin and “big” sister Josie. He never made it home.

As he crossed the finish line, Michael collapsed and died. The Kovacic family would never be the same.

Thankfully, they had life insurance. Even though the young couple had been living paycheck to paycheck, their insurance professional had convinced them to buy an affordable policy.

Traci says the hardest part for her was knowing that the love of her life was never coming home. “But the reality is that everything else stayed the same,” she says. “The paychecks stopped immediately, but I still had to keep the lights on, buy food, pay the mortgage and take care of the kids. Having life insurance meant I didn’t have to make any immediate decisions or sell the house.”

“The life insurance saved us—and it still does today,” she says.

Preserve Our Polish Heritage!

This #GivingTuesday, November 27, support the Polish Falcons Heritage Foundation.

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in.

We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back.

Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar.

Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. #GivingTuesday includes people of all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds. Together, millions of people demonstrate our common capacity to give.

Click here to donate to the Polish Falcons Heritage Foundation.

Your support is greatly appreciated and provides the means necessary for us to continue hosting workshops, sponsoring programs and organizing events that preserve our Polish heritage, and help those of Polish descent discover, explore and understand their heritage.
