"You ROCK!!"J. G., Owner GoForChange.com
Eco-architect Julie Gabrielli created GOforChange.com to help connect the dots in Baltimore between environment, health, energy, social justice, business, inspiration and more. Julie has long been an advocate, educator, and practitioner of sustainable design. Creative Director and local artist, Alyssa Dennis, brings her design savvy, her interest in repurposed materials, and home-made, do-it-yourself solutions.
Together with high-quality guest writers and photographers, GOforChange bring you profiles of local businesses that are earth- and people-friendly; how-to’s (such as, make your own household cleaners); inspirational musings; and a calendar of events, educational and volunteer opportunities.
GoForChange.com approached us because the original developer had become unresponsive> Julie was eager to grow the site into something more than a run of the mill blog. Already a highly customized WordPress blog, Julie wanted to add a marketplace and other personal touches.
We revamped the right column a bit to separate the action, added some new buttons and implemented a mechanism for certain "callout" text to be highlighted when rolling over an image of a bird in the left column. The marketplace "GOstore" currently houses eBooks for sale through the site via PayPal.
GoForChange has been attending blogging camps and has taken a proactive approach in turning this Baltimore, Maryland green blog into a sustainable environmental issues web site.

First I'll just say it looks...amazing! I'm so excited! I've been playing around on the new site, and it's just fantastic...absolutely everything I had hoped for but so much more. Our ability to even make the smallest little change ourselves is just such a huge bonus and is so different from other website versions we've had, it just makes it that much more useful to me.
