700 Strong- Building a Better World, One Hour at a Time


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!

Our very own Elsa (along with over 200 other participants) donated 10 inches of hair to Locks of Love during a UCLA event last week! Elsa learned of the event thanks to her sister, who works at the campus.

Elsa, who grew her hair for one year in preparation, decided to donate simply because she wants to make the children who have lost their hair due to a illness happy. Prior to the event, she was a bit nervous but even more excited. Now she’s enjoying her new look… she feels great that she was able to help someone in need!

We think she looks beautiful before AND after! You rock, Elsa! :)
