All Web Promotion Gives to Local Troops

Oglesby, IL., January 31, 2011 -- In an effort to boost employee morale and to engage in local community efforts, website design company All Web Promotion organized a retreat day benefiting the local men and women of the United States military.

All Web Promotion, Inc. is a website design and Internet marketing company located in Oglesby, Illinois. The company has been in business since 1999 and currently employs 12 design and marketing specialists. All Web Promotion specializes in designing visually pleasing websites for small-to-medium sized businesses, and also in marketing those websites for online success.

All Web Promotion schedules four retreat events each year. The Company uses this time to promote togetherness amongst its employees through a series of morale boosting activities and meetings.

On January 20th, All Web Promotion closed their offices for half of their work day while employees shopped and sorted regularly requested foods, snacks, and toiletries for local military men and women stationed overseas. Items such as shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, sun block, batteries, puzzle books, and playing cards were among those purchased and sorted into individual care packages. All Web Promotion donated 5 large care packages to the Hometown Hugs for Our Heroes organization.

"Collectively, as a company, we decided to do something a little different for our quarterly retreat day. Instead of spending part of our day bowling or scavenger hunting at Starved Rock - two activities we've done in the past - it was decided to donate our time and resources to a local cause." says Karl Ribas, Vice-President of Marketing at All Web Promotion. "We chose to work with the Hometown Hugs for Our Heroes organization because of our own personal affiliations with soldiers in the military and because their efforts directly support the men and woman from right here in the Illinois Valley."

Ribas has been with All Web Promotion since 2003 and has served as the company's Vice President of Marketing since 2008. In addition to his role with All Web Promotion, Ribas is also a website design and marketing consultant and the author of a website design and marketing focused blog.

"Our team had a great time with this project. It's a great feeling knowing we were able to bring local troops a little touch and taste of home while at the same time providing necessities they could not acquire where they are stationed", says Ribas.
