I received the following email from Kelly, one of our employees… It’s great to see the Zappos core values going beyond just our customers!
Last night I took my 7-year-old daughter (Hannah) to go see the preview
of Disney’s “College Road Trip” movie… at the movie, several radio
stations and Disney reps were handing out gifts.. well, the Disney rep
must have not planned on having many kids attend, since she ran out of
the much-coveted kid’s gifts… my daughter was lucky enough to get
one… while many other children were running around showing theirs off,
some of the kids were sad that they did not get one… one little girl
in particular was in tears… My daughter walked up to her and said “my
mommy works at Zappos and her company believes that we should treat
everyone kindly and try to spread happiness. I would like you to have
my gift if it will make you smile. I don’t need it. Now smile and have
fun at the movie.” and she gave her a hug.
Next generation of Zappos ???
