A BIG Thank You
Lorrie Thomas Ross believes in giving back to the community. Since 2007, she has donated 1% of her company’s gross annual sales to environmental non-profits. “I remember when I first saw Art From Scrap/Explore Ecology listed on 1% For The Planet’s website.” Thomas Ross says. “After years of giving to organizations outside of Santa Barbara, my team and I wanted to donate locally. Supporting an organization as dedicated to education as we are, who is also in Santa Barbara was the perfect fit!”
Thomas Ross and Web Marketing Therapy, Inc. (WMT) contacted Explore Ecology at a crucial moment. Explore Ecology’s Executive Director Cay Sanchez explains, “We were in the very beginning stage of our name change from Art From Scrap to Explore Ecology. When we received Lorrie’s call it was perfect timing. Not only did Lorrie generously donate $5,000 to our environmental education program, she also offered to assist us in our re-branding process. That’s how WMT became our Marketing Support Team and so far has donated over 227 hours of marketing genius.”
WMT’s team has provided Explore Ecology with a new website and web development, a blog, design of promotional materials, staff training, strategy and PR for the annual One Night Stand fundraiser. WMT also created new social media pages on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter for Explore Ecology.
Thomas Ross says, “We like to make a difference and believe tremendously in what Explore Ecology is doing. It’s something that our whole staff has been supportive on.”
