CHAMP INTERNET SOLUTIONS PARTNERS WITH METTA STUDENTS FOUNDATION TO DESIGN & DEVELOP NEW WEBSITE
NEWTON, MA (September 29, 2015) Champ Internet Solutions (www.champinternet.com), a full-service marketing agency specializing in web design and development, digital marketing and brand strategy, announced the launch of a new website designed and developed for the Metta Students Foundation, a Providence, RI based 501c non-profit organization that promotes and rewards acts of kindness performed by high school students. The word “metta” means love and kindness.
The new website (www.mettastudents.org) is completely re-designed and optimized for SEO, has a responsive design for optimal performance on any type of device, and clearly communicates the Metta story and mission, while showcasing the program’s monthly $1,000 grant winners. A highlight of the new website is a section that invites visitors to submit their “Metta Moment” in the form of a video. The new site also includes the nomination form, and promotes the use of the #sharemetta and #mettamoment hashtags to relay acts of student kindness through Facebook and Twitter.
The Metta Students Foundation was started in October 2012 when organization founder, Norm Kelly, heard of one teen’s act of kindness to another, taking a wheelchair-bound classmate with cerebral palsy to the senior prom. Kelly was so moved by this teen’s compassion that he wanted to do more to reward other teens who go out of their way to #sharemetta. Today this non-profit organiza- tion is in its third year and has awarded more than $26,000 in grants to high school students in Rhode Island. This fall, the Metta Students Foundation expands to award grants in Massachusetts.
“The team at Champ has been a pleasure to work with on our new website and all the projects they’ve helped us with,” said Kelly. “We have been extremely impressed with their professionalism, creativity and enthusiasm. They have completely immersed themselves in our cause, to the point where their CEO and founder, Seth Worby, sits on our Board of Directors.”
Seth Worby, Champ’s CEO and founder said, “It is a privilege to be deeply involved with the Metta Students Foundation as an agency partner and a member of the Board of Directors. The concept of giving back to others and rewarding kindness is much needed in today’s society. We are looking forward to helping the foundation grow exponentially as they expand the #sharemetta movement into Massachusetts this fall.”
