Dogeared is building a better world… one hour at a time! As a certified B-Corp, giving back and brining people together is part of what we do. In 2014, the Dogeared team logged in 897 volunteer hours at some of our favorite organizations…
Putting positive energy out there is the ultimate investment into a better world. Our Dogeared staff and community has long been involved in volunteering and giving back to causes that are near and dear to us and genuinely help others. Today, we are celebrating the success and accomplishments as a team by reaching over 700 hours of community and volunteering services since January! To date, the team has reached 744 hours through our involvement in opportunities including Heal the Bay, Locks of Love, Step Up Women’s Network, the American Cancer Society, Baby 2 Baby and the Do Good Bus.
Each event allows us to be a part of something greater. Our events are accessible and exciting, encouraging our entire team team to get involved and give back! Volunteering opportunities are chosen by our amazing “Karma in Action” team. The Karma in Action group meets once a month to determine events and opportunities for the company to be involved in and how to get employees to participate. The spirit of karma resonates through the program reminding staffers that “we are all connected.”
Since January, our Dogeared team has participated in team outings as well as individuals volunteering on their own time by assisting therapeutic riders at the Shadow Hills Riding Club raising funds for the Children’s Hospital on a monthly basis or mentoring and teaching at educational institutions.
Our program and Karma in Action team continue to inspire and encourage us to involve ourselves in causes that help those in need. We believe that everyone can be the change and help us create a better world!
Heal the Bay
Dogeared @ Heal the Bay!
Danielle and Tania from Dogeared were lucky gals who attended the Annual Bring Back the Beach Gala held at the Jonathan Beach Club. The Gala is a fundraising event that helps SoCal keep its beaches clean and family friendly. The organizers raised funds by hosting a silent and live auction with products and gifts donated by high end vendors and retailers in the area.
The blue carpet celeb studded event included a live performance by the famed Ziggy Marley on the beach front property. MC’d by Amy Smart, the event began at sunset and went late into the evening with entertainment, good food and drink! Who wouldn’t want to hang out on the beach with great tunes and good people?!The event was able to raise over $1 million for programs that assist in cleaning the beached in the SoCal area. A total success!
Habitat for Humanity
On Valentine’s Day, five members of Team Dogeared gave something even better than flowers and candy—they volunteered their time at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Gardena! The ReStore sells new and used home furnishings and building materials to the public at great discounts. As volunteers, our team organized and moved merchandise to the sales floor and assisted customers. A big thank you to Francine, Irene, Deanna, Jackie & Markeesa for participating!
