Thank You Thursday – 8.22.13

Last year, Heal the Bay speakers reached more than 40,000 Angelenos across Los Angeles with our message about solutions to pollution.

How the heck did we do that? No cloning was involved, just hours of time donated by our Speakers Bureau volunteers, Heal the Bay’s elite pollution fighting team!

We thank our longtime cadre of dedicated speakers who fan out to schools, clubs, cleanups and all kinds of events to help us raise awareness about how to protect the ocean. This week we “graduated” and trained 21 new Speakers Bureau volunteers – a record number for Melissa, our Speakers Bureau coordinator.Thanks  to our new class! We look forward to partnering with you in the months and years to come.

Thank you also to Buca di Beppo, which donated food to fuel our new speakers.

We also thank our neighbors Jersey Mike’s and Fresh Brothers, as well as Just Chill for providing refreshments to our Corporate Healers, volunteers and staff these past few weeks.
