During Earth Day this year we launched a text donation campaign to raise money for the Earth Day Festival. Each person who texted a donation was entered into a drawing for a stylin’ beach cruiser. In fact, if you were one of the 38,000 people who had a blast at the festival this year you can still text a donation to support it for next year – text “Earth” to 50555 to make a $10 donation.
Now that the Earth Day dust has settled, we randomly drew our lucky winner. Congratulations to Kelly Cote from Montecito! Not only did he support CEC with a text donation but Kelly was also one of our hard-working volunteers at Earth Day this year.
Plus, he is a student at Santa Barbara High School and loves to refill his reusable water bottle at the refilling stations there. Those refilling stations are part of a CEC project called “Rethink the Drink” which aims to reduce consumption of plastic water bottles by 75% during this school year.
Kelly is certainly doing his part – keep it up and enjoy your new cruiser!
Many thanks go out to Isla Vista Bike Boutique who generously donated a bike from their shop.
And most of all, many many thanks go out to all of you who texted a donation this year. The Earth Day Festival would certainly not be possible year after year without your support – Powered by the People!
