Rollerblade Lightning II!!!
Rollerblade Lightning II!!!
For the second year in a row, Zappos.com employees got together for the Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) Bowl for Kids’ Sake. This is a major fund raiser for BBBS. Bowlers were required to raise $80 in pledges to participate. Zappos.com once again showed its commitment to the employees and community by pledging $60 to each employee that bowled. 34 employees turned out for the event raising $2,732. A Big shout out to Mi K. for being the top fundraiser with $180.
The day was a success! Professional bowlers and some not-so-professional bowlers alike bowled side by side. But, it wasn’t about the highest score; it was about raising money for the kids and having fun at the same time. While most of us barely broke triple digit scores, we all laughed until it hurt!

Jason is now on his way from our Las Vegas office to our Kentucky Distribution Center. Since he was planning on driving all his personal belongings across the country in his car, he had to downsize a little.
In this special edition of “Things on my desk”, Jason actually gives away all the things on his desk to his co-workers.
The air was cold on our fingertips, the mood was cheerful and uplifting, people from all around were gathering, and the water was absolutely freezing. There were costumed heroes everywhere, from Nerds to Bumble Bees, all there for one cause. Raising money for Special Olympics Kentucky. This being the second year in a row that Zappos has participated, we had 32 Polar Bears take that icy dive this year, and raised a total of $5,785 winning us the Frigid Cup.
Since started in 1999, there have been thousands who have taken the plunge for Special Olympics. It’s an amazing event that helps out so many people each year, giving Special Olympics athletes the chance to prove that they have the drive and passion to do great things. It’s amazing to see how many people come out year around, to show support, and freeze their tails off after jumping into the frigid water. But it’s all worth the outcome. With events taking place in Louisville, Newport, Lake Cumberland, Owensboro, and Lexington, they raised over $510,000.
If you have ever considered supporting, and even joining in on this event, don’t hesitate. The atmosphere is exciting, and dressing up or not, you are are guaranteed to have a blast. Since this years Polar Bear Plunge is already over, you have a whole year to save money, and encourage people to take a gander at how exciting it can be to help out our Special Olympic athletes.
