A Truly Inspiring Day

This year, Dogeared made Step Up Women’s Network our non-profit partner…donating time and funds to incredible young girls and women. Step Up Women’s Network is a truly inspiring organization, fulfilling underserved girls’ in local communities to reach their full potential through education, mentoring and confidence building. Each year, SUWN hosts their annual Inspiration Awards Event at The Beverly HIlton Hotel here in Los Angeles. The Dogeared team was ecstatic to be invited to celebrate the successes of the graduating class of 2013 and honorees.

Our team was able to donate jewelry for the silent auction and to the honorary girls from the class of 2013 - (and not to mention, 100% graduation rate and EVERY one of them accepted into college!). Celebrity honorees at the event included Julie Bowen, of ‘Modern Family’ and fashion designer, Trina Turk and Nina Jacobson, producer of “The Hunger Games.”

The day was filled with inspiring, moving and impressive stories of courage and fortitude from the girls of the organization and the hardships they endured to get to where they are now. We were so happy to be a part of these young women’s lives and watch their success flourish! Check out some of their encouraging stories here- http://youtu.be/VmZ2tijiV9c

Step Up Women’s Network, its mentors and sponsors enable progress and education for these young women through after school programs and mentorship opportunities to ensure a brighter future for all. With over 900 attendees at the event, Step Up was able to raise over $400,000 to help the next wave of these amazing young women. For more information on Step Up Women’s Network, visit: www.suwn.org

Disco fever has struck the Dogeared headquarters! It’s like we’re channeling the ’70s, except instead of bellbottoms and butterfly collars, we’re wearing love beads and sparkle bracelets!

Dogeared really fosters the creative spirit in us all! The retail department recently decided to take an ordinary corkboard and vamp it up using the message cards that come with Dogeared pieces. Marcia and Merlin were so inspired they commissioned Mimi to create an inspiration board in their office. She did an amazing job and created one in the shape of a huge peace sign! It’s literally about 4 feet tall!
