  • (1888PressRelease) March 23, 2011 - Last Tuesday (March 15), Janie Thomas, Senior Project Manager at Doremus, the business communications specialist, decided to bake a batch of the famous organic cookies she markets through her business amazing j's cookies.

    Moved by the devastation in Japan, Janie decided to sell her cookies for donations to send to the Red Cross for Japan disaster relief.

    Doremus employees, no strangers to Janie's cookies, bought out her supply within minutes, raising over $130.00 for the Red Cross. This led to another idea to sweeten the pot…hold a Doremus bake sale.

    The following Monday, March 21, Doremus employees brought in baked goods from home and sold them in the lobby of 200 Varick Street. The cookies quickly sold out, raising the total contributions to the Red Cross to $1680. "Keep the change" was heard often at the make-shift booth manned by Doremus employees.

    "People want to do something to help," Janie said, "but many are stretched financially. It's tough these days to write a check, but buying a treat is a simple way to give to others and give yourself a pick-me-up at the same time. In the end, everyone wins."

    Janie hopes what Doremus did will inspire other agencies to do something to help the Japanese people, "in whatever way works for them."
