Last week, Timberland announced its call for entries for their inaugural Timberland Serv-a-Palooza Challenge in partnership with innovative digital fundraising platform CrowdRise.com.  The six-week Challenge encourages consumers to volunteer for a cause of their choice for opportunities to win amazing prizes as well as big donations for the non-profit organization they choose to support. A real win-win for everyone!

For 17 years, Timberland has celebrated its commitment to volunteerism through its annual Serv-a-Palooza events. In April 2014, Timberland surpassed the one million hours served milestone. Now, through their Serv-a-Palooza Challenge, Timberland wants to get started on its next million hours and motivate the public to get out and volunteer.

Anyone who wants to volunteer can sign up at crowdrise.com/timberland to earn rewards for the hours they serve, donors they recruit, and money they raise. The Timberlan Serv-a-Palooza Challenge will begin Monday, August 11 and continue through Thursday, September 18th.

Timberland’s partnership with CrowdRise (founded by actor and philanthropist Edward Norton) brings the brand’s love of volunteerism to consumers for the first time with prize and donation incentives. "I'm a big fan of Timberland. I wear their shoes all the time and I also admire their longstanding commitment to environmental sustainability and community service," said Norton. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to work with a company that's got such great priorities to leverage their volunteer efforts in exciting new ways."

 

“Volunteerism is an integral part of Timberland’s heritage,” said Atlanta McIlwraith, Senior Manager Community Engagement. “Partnering with a socially innovative platform like CrowdRise gives us the opportunity to engage with our consumers in an exciting way; and it reinvigorates our own commitment to giving back.  It’s inspiring to imagine the impact this partnership could have in communities around the country.” 

 

At the end of the Serv-a-Palooza Challenge, Timberland will award grand prizes to the Top Recruiter, Top Volunteer and Top Fundraiser. Each winner will receive a $10,000 grant for the cause he/she supports.  They will also receive a $5,000 Timberland shopping spree OR an all-expense-paid trip to the Horquin Desert to help plant Timberland’s two-millionth tree in China, a custom pair of Timberland® boots, and have their “Impact Maker” story shared on an online Timberland campaign. Additionally, the top volunteer will have his/her hours matched by Timberland employees in New England!

 

For full rules and details, visit crowdrise.com/timberland. Volunteers who set up their fundraising page by August 10 at 11:59 p.m. ET will be entered to win one of 50 pairs of Timberland® boots to wear while they complete their service hours.

Inspired By: Pop Brights

If the saying rings true and fortune really does befriend the bold, then it’s in our good fortune that this season’s brightest and boldest hues are the hottest thing on the block!

There are so many ways to wear bright colors, even if you’re not as forward or bold in your sartorial tastes.  Adding in pops of bold hues through your accessories allows you to indulge in the “Neo Rio” trend without fear of going overboard.

Today’s street style inspiration, however, is all about embracing bold, bright colors while tempering them with a couple of well-chosen basics (in this case, a denim jacket). See our take on this vivid outfit below!

New Brand Spotlight: bernie mev.

bernie mev, woven footwear, woven shoes, bernie mev shoes, bernie mev footwear, bernie mev women's footwear, Itamar Carmi, new brand spotlight,  The name Bernie Mev is known for being the master of woven footwear. Bernie Mev started out in the 1960s with his original factory located in the Bronx. At that time he was making shoes for all the big department stores and major retailers.

In 2000, Bernie met his match, a man named Itamar Carmi who was as fresh and energetic as Bernie. Itamar owned Medici Shoe Stores, a privately owned retail business with five locations in the New York area that specialized in imported Italian labels. When Bernie and Itamar came together they soon produced shoes in accordance with their shared high standards of excellence.

Itamar quickly brought a vision of his to life; it was a groundbreaking technology in the form of an expandable, handwoven memory foam footbed. It included innovative color combinations and patterns in a wide array of shoe styles from high wedges to ballerina flats.

Bernie Mev footwear is taking the shoe industry by storm with its unique designs and extremely comfortable shoes. Itamar and his wife personally choose all of the fabrics and design all of the patterns. The rest of the recipe includes a hands-on management style, a great office staff, and a crackerjack team of sales associates. “We have designed a whole new line for our 2014 collection,” said Rachel Carmi. “It's definitely Bernie Mev at its best.” Every woman needs a pair of Mevs in her closet!

Zappos Installs Solar Panels

Here comes the sun! - and Zappos is taking full advantage of the more than 300 sunny days a year in Las Vegas to generate clean electricity using new photovoltaic solar panels. For the first time in company history, Zappos installed 66 280-Watt solar panels creating an 18.48 kW solar array on the roof of our Z-Bistro

Las Vegas is known as a solar hot spot with excellent solar radiation. The deserts around Las Vegas are home to some of the world’s largest solar arrays including the 64 MW Nevada Solar One power plant and the 390 MW Ivanpah Solar Power Facility. Additionally, many Las Vegas residents are adding small solar photovoltaic and solar thermal systems to the rooftops of their homes. That rocks!

The 18.48 kW Zappos Bistro solar project might be small in comparison to the ones mentioned above, but it’s our first step towards clean, renewable energy while our sustainability team researches larger solar installations. We certainly are proud parents!

Check out this sweet time-lapse video of the installation filmed by the awesomely talented Zappos A/V team.
