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!

Meet honorary momma, Crystal. She shaved in honor of her brother, Cole, who passed away from a brain tumor. She is 18 and off to college in the fall. Dogeared was more than honored to give Sparkle Heart Necklaces to these brave women, helping bring out the beauty of their new look. We are so inspired by their courage and their goal to find a cure for pediatric cancer.

Today marks a day for love…

Today marks a day for love…

Our AMAZING Dogeared Dads weighed in on what it means to be a father and the best parts of fatherhood. For their special day this year, we asked them to share their answers with us. Let’s see what they had to say!

Our Dogeared Dad: Jesus, Facilities ManagerBelinda, 6  & Belly, 2 

“I love to see my daughters improve each day!” FUN FACT- “We get ice cream every Sunday at Belinda’s favorite place named ‘La Cascada!”

Our Dogeared Dad:  Chris, Quality Control Nathan, 3 

“Being a father for the first time is the best thing ever!  Now I have my little buddy and one day my BBQ grilling assistant!”

Our Dogeared Dad: Merlin, Co-FounderJordan, 18  & Grace, 15

“There are challenges to being a responsible Dad. While I still possess the same childlike sense of wonder they enjoy, this tends to blur the line between being a fun Dad and an embarrassing one.”

Our Dogeared Dad: Garr, Managing DirectorPriya, 24 & Rory, 22 

“Each day as a Dad just gets better and better!”

Our Dogeared Dad: Omar, AccountingJaime, 10  & Angel, 8 

“The fun part of being a dad is that on Saturdays and Sundays there is always a trip to the park or hiking.The kids are two years apart and they both like different sports…so every time we are at the park I have to transform myself into “super dad!” I’m playing football with one but playing soccer with the other. Greatest feeling after every time we spend time together is to hear their little voice tell me ‘THANK YOU DADDY!”

Our NEWEST Soon-To-Be Dogeared Dad: Lewis, Graphic DesignBaby “bean”

“I feel I was born to be a father… I can’t wait to be able to love and teach our “bean” to be the best person he or she can be!”

To our amazing Dogeared Dads and to yours, Happy Father’s Day!

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!

Today is National Siblings Day! Celebrate your siblings, whether near or far, by reaching out to them and letting them know how much you love them! From our Dogeared families to yours!
