Zappos Day of Wow


This month, we were in Austin to say goodbye to summer with a back-to-school family bash with Zappos. Together with Crafting Community, Zappos created the most colorful and unforgettable day for our students at East Austin College Prep and Reagan High School. The Day of WOW featured playground-ready crafts from Converse, Dakine, Keds, and Levis, a wacky school portrait studio, a next-level lace bar, a Whole Foods snack station, treats from Austin food trucks, games and giveaways! Our students were able to participate in all of the crafts from the lace bar to designing their own tie dye style on brand new Keds! Everyone who attended the event brought a backpack or a pair of athletic shoes that was donated directly after the event to our students in Austin. We are so grateful to Zappos for providing this opportunity and experience for our students. It was such an incredible day full of laughter and fun! The backpacks and shoes for the just keep livin program programs are much needed and truly make going back to school more special for these kids!!
