jme Thomas' Motley Zoo

Name: jme Thomas

What is your job? Full time volunteer executive director of Motley Zoo Animal Rescue

What social causes are most important to you? Animal welfare, primarily finding homes for pets in need.

What charity do you support – and how? Motley Zoo primarily, but I also started “Cancer is a Jerk” in honor of my best friend who is losing her battle to aggressive and advanced breast cancer. I have always been a person dedicated to service. I used to design clothing (came VERY close to being on Project Runway three times!) and my goal with the clothing line was to donate the proceeds to charity. Eventually I decided that instead of trying to get from A to Z by selling the clothes, I could instead just do the work myself instead, directly to the causes I cared about. So I have now funded 2 charities, though Motley Zoo is my full time priority.
