The Thomas Collective Launches 'TTC Ten' to Mark a Decade of Business

Integrated Communications Agency Celebrates Milestone With Initiative Supporting Nonprofit Organizations

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 30, 2015) - The Thomas Collective (TTC), a marketing-communications firm based in New York City, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this month. To mark a decade of award-winning programs, TTC is initiating the "TTC Ten," a program that uses the agency's expertise in brand strategy, public relations and social media to support 10 U.S. nonprofit organizations over the next five years.

The agency, whose work has garnered some of the industry's top awards, was created with a set of values that included a commitment to community, often creating a bridge between high-profile nonprofit organizations and their client base. The TTC Ten initiative will offer assistance to two nonprofit partners annually, with services to support an integrated communications project that best serves the needs of the identified partner organization.

"Supporting like-minded nonprofits has always been a priority, as it allows us to work with passionate people who -- like us -- love what they do," says Pamela Thomas, agency president. "And this milestone allows us to formalize our commitment to groups that benefit from our expertise, providing TTC with the opportunity to do work that will make us proud -- both professionally and personally." TTC has a long history of working with nonprofit organizations that specialize in environmental, health, hunger and community-related causes.

In this inaugural year of the giveback program, the agency has identified Career Gear and the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) as the first two groups to receive pro bono communications support. Career Gear assists disadvantaged men in finding and retaining employment through workshops and wardrobe donations and the American Foundation for the Blind is an organization that provides support, via multiple programs, for those with vision loss and their families.

The Thomas Collective was founded in 2005 by Pamela Thomas and has since created and executed programs for national and international brands in a broad range of lifestyle, health and wellness categories. "I founded The Thomas Collective because I wanted to work with people from a variety of backgrounds and specializations who were enthusiastic, curious, smart and community-centric," says Thomas. "So programs like the TTC Ten allow us to feed the passions of our team members -- helping us to retain the best talent and do work that benefits those with needs beyond ours."
