Embracing the holiday spirit!

By Kaitlyn Dotson

Our customers help drive our product and we want them to continue to share input on where our giving goes this holiday season. Last year, we made a donation on behalf of our customers to the organizations near and dear to us based on their feedback. So, we took 

The Organizations!

Each cause has a special meaning to one of us at CalcuQuote.
