Our Zappos Wishez Fairies granted another wish! This time, the recipient was Rockne H. from our ZCLT team. Rockne loves our Zappos KY family so much, he put in a wish to go to the KY Holiday Party this year.
With a wave of a fairy wand, and a couple of generous Zapponians, Rockne got his wish!
Water changes everything. It certainly changed our perspective here at the Zappos HQ when charity:water founder Scott Harrison spoke at our last All Hands meeting. It inspired tons of Zapponians to do something about the global water crisis. For our 12th birthday this year, Zappos even set up a charity:water fund to raise money and awareness for this wonderful cause.
Two inspired Zapponians, Pua and Rian, were so moved by the charity:water story, they set up their very own Zappos Team Challenge fund the very next day after the All Hands meeting. Much to their surprise, the fund raised over $2,000 within just 24 hours! To date, the Zappos Team Challenge fund has raised over $6,000 from donations and fundraisers; that’s more than halfway to its $10,000 goal, which is enough to build two wells, providing precious clean water to families in less fortunate communities.
