“We at Zappos consider ourselves a family and, by extension, Las Vegas is a part of that family. We saw there was a need that our current efforts weren’t filling so we acted on it. We’ll continue to collect donations at www.Zappos.com/support but we encourage anyone who lost a loved one in this tragedy to reach out to [email protected] for more information on how we might be able to help with immediate funeral costs. It’s hard to tell just how big the need is right now but we’ll be there for our city, and those affected by this tragedy, in whatever way we can.”
This is not the first time Zappos was this generous as they have collaborated with various homeless organizations and charity foundations in the past.
In fact, the Zappos employees themselves are driving a lot of the company’s charitable efforts, including a Kid’s Farmers Market, “Home for the Pawlidayz”, and “Promapalooza”, according to Footwear News.
“Our team members are constantly coming up with ideas for how we can give back to the communities in which we live and work,” Zappos Karma Kommando Steven Bautista added.
Over the years, Zappos has donated thousands of items to youth foundations, helped cover the costs of pet adoptions in local shelters, and even gave the less fortunate the opportunity to shop for free.
