We were excited and honored to host the inspiring young ladies from Step Up Women’s Network – a nonprofit membership organization igniting women & girls to fulfill their potential. It was a great day filled with fun, inspiration, brainstorming and a little Dogeared history.
Jennifer from American Red Cross Los Angeles Region stopped by to present a certificate to Dogeared for its ongoing contributions to Disaster Relief through our We Heal Together campaigns. We are so honored to be part of such an important cause. Thank you!!
Dogeared is so touched to have been a part of the third annual 46 Mommas: Shave for the Brave event raising funds for pediatric cancer research. This group of incredibly inspiring women and their families represent the reality that on average 46 families each weekday receive the news that their child has cancer. The 46 Mommas team is on a mission to raise awareness and funds for life-saving childhood cancer research. With the success of their most recent event, the team has surpassed their million dollar goal and have raised over $215,000 in 2013!
Dogeared loves being a B-Corp! We’re held accountable to being good corporate citizens and that means we get fun visits from our friends at B Lab to see how we’re holding up our end of the bargain. B Lab team members, Jessica and Victoria, stopped by our office last week to check things out. They got a first hand look at what we do for our teams, the planet and our communities. We passed! And Jessica and Victoria took advantage of making their own wish before leaving..a Dogeared tradition! Learn more about B Lab and B-Corps and what we’re all about at http://www.bcorporation.net
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.
As a certified B-Corp, Dogeared is always keeping a pulse on really cool ways to serve our local communities and make a difference. We are believers of a healthy and sustainable future, not just for business, but for our planet. So it was no surprise when our co-founder and avid road cyclist, Merlin, jumped on the opportunity to support the Climate Ride. This 6-day, 327 mile journey is an amazing movement that encourages a healthy lifestyle and fitness while promoting a movement towards a more eco-friendly environment for the future. Now that is something we can get on board with!!
A Truly Inspiring Day
