NORTHBROOK, Ill., July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To help shine a spotlight on the remarkable stories of good that often go unnoticed, Allstate Insurance Company is launching the "Give It Up For Good" campaign. Through "Give It Up For Good," Allstate will recognize the unsung heroes who are dedicated to bettering their communities and enriching the lives of others.
At the center of the "Give It Up For Good" campaign is an online platform that highlights user-generated stories, tweets, videos and photos, as well as news articles that focus on all the good things happening within the community every day. Individuals can visit Allstate.com/GiveItUpForGood to share their stories of service and learn about others contributing to the greater good.

'Give It Up For Good' is part of Allstate's commitment to supporting and giving back to our communities," said Lisa Cochrane, senior vice president of marketing for Allstate. "Through this initiative, we're able to recognize individuals who are leading their communities through service and are an inspiration to all."
