This past Tuesday was quite an eventful one for us here at the Zappos HQ. To raise money for NCCF (Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation), the Zappos Merchandising, Inc. Culture Club decided to celebrate the lesser known “holiday”: Cinco + Cinco + Siete=17 De Mayo (the 17th of May).  The team served up some non-alcoholic margaritas and a full nacho bar. For a donation, people were able to try their luck cracking one of the ten piñatas they had on hand.

On top of that, Project Culture also had a Flower-gram Sale to benefit NCCF. People were able to purchase beautiful hand-made flowers to give to their friends in the office while helping raise money for a great cause.  

Putting the “fun” back in fundraiser is what it’s all about!

A team of Zapponians came up with the great idea to get some candy and other easter treats and rally the whole office to take a few minutes out of their day to create and personalize Easter bags that will all be given to NCCF.

Who knew we had so many Easter bunnies among us? We hope these colorful Easter bags will bring smiles to the kids’ faces this Easter.

Zappos Gives! pledged to donate 100 backpacks stuffed full of school supplies for the the children of the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. However, with the help of Zappos employees, we were able to pack 266 backpacks with everything a child would need to get through the school year.

We’re very excited to see their faces when they come to pick them up!
