  State Auto’s “Invest a Day” Facebook App Promotes Community Service

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- November 15, 2012

The State Auto Insurance Companies’ 91-year legacy of caring and community
service continues through the launch of an “Invest a Day” Facebook app at
www.facebook.com/StateAuto.

Throughout its history, State Auto’s associates and independent agents have
given time, talents and financial resources to support their local
communities. From the Great Depression, when State Auto’s founder gave away
eggs from the front steps of the company’s headquarters, to this year’s
record-breaking contribution to the United Way, State Auto remains committed
to helping its neighbors in need.

In 2008, the company created the Invest a Day program, which offers associates
one paid day per year to volunteer for a charitable organization. State Auto
is now taking Invest a Day to a global audience through a Facebook app. The
app offers people the opportunity to share their own stories of community
service, and then encourage their own Facebook friends to give back by sharing
the story on their Facebook Timeline.

“Invest a Day is a concept that is close to the hearts of State Auto
associates. We feel driven to spread our spirit of giving back beyond our
company to others in the community,” said President, Chairman and CEO Bob
Restrepo. “By asking people to share their stories, we’re hoping to inspire a
broader commitment to community service.”

To help spread the stories shared through the Invest a Day campaign, State
Auto has created @InvestaDay on Twitter and uses the #InvestaDay hashtag.A
video featured within the app features State Auto associates telling their
stories of giving back through the Invest a Day program.
