Dogeared Founder Marcia Maizel-Clarke cleaned out her closet for a cause donating a covetable collection of designer duds to Fashion Project. This amazing retailer uses fashion as a force for good making giving back glamorous. Marcia’s swoon-worthy selection includes styles from Vince, Rebecca Taylor, Diane Von Furstenberg and, of course, Dogeared… and all profits go to One Voice, a Los Angeles nonprofit she is so passionate about and been working with for over 20 years.
‘Tis the season to give back! Every year, Dogeared co-founders Marcia & Merlin head up one of the giveaway centers for the One Voice Holiday Program in Los Angeles – a non profit organization helping families living at poverty level within our community. Many of the staff and family and friends of Dogeared join hundreds of volunteers to participate in this amazing event that provides Christmas food baskets, toys and books to 2,500 families.
As part of Dogeared’s social responsibility, we are always looking to involve our staff in our giving efforts. This year, we had a wonderful opportunity with the Maryvale Orphanage to create gifts for the kids to open at their holiday party!
Dogeared teamed up with The American Red Cross “Holiday Mail for Heroes” program. Today, our staff sent lots of love and gratitude to active service members around the world. This year, American Red Cross is doing something really cool by expanding their program to social media users, creating a easy way to participate:
Dogeared was proud to be the corporate sponsor of Step Up Women’s Network College Connections Conference here in LA on Saturday. The event was hosted at Mt. St. Mary’s College in Brentwood. Over 60 Step Up high school teens were paired with mentors from various professional industries to spend the day learning everything about the college admissions process, take a tour of campus and gain valuable career insights from professionals.
“Once you choose hope, anything is possible”
They did it!!! And Dogeared was honored to follow along Pink Links’ journey as they successfully completed 40 miles for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in NYC last weekend! Congratulations to such an inspiring and joyful group of women who raised over $71,000, making Pink Links the 4th largest fundraising team. Truly an incredible accomplishment! The ladies were bonded by strength in numbers. Their motivation for this year’s walk was fellow Pink Link and recently diagnosed friend, Hillary Kaplan in addition to other special women in their lives.
Meet Pink Links – a group of 20 incredible women on a mission to raise awareness about breast cancer and the importance of self-exams.
