#25RAK’s of 2017!

2017 marked Zazou’s 25th anniversary! To show our appreciation to our community we challenged ourselves to do 25 Random Acts of Kindness each month! Check out what we did below! #25RAK
  February #25RAK

For the month of February Team Zazou came together to assemble just over 70 sandwiches to contribute to the Lookout Society in North Vancouver. The Lookout Society’s goal is to help end homelessness in our community.

  March #25RAK

Team Zazou’s Random Act of Kindness for March were donations to the Covenant House Vancouver. The foundation helps homeless youth with finding sanctuary and a brighter future!

  April #25RAK

Team Zazou’s Random Act of Kindness for April was requesting a $1 donation towards WaterAid that Zazou matched to help provide clean drinking water. With our guest’s support we were able to provide 25 people with clean drinking water for the rest of their life!

  MAY #25RAK

Team Zazou’s Random Act of Kindness for May was to help raise donations towards Todd’s Ride to Conquer Cancer in 2017. To show our support our team members each donated one or two of their services or their hours towards the cause. As a team they chipped in over $2200!!

  June #25RAK

In June the team handed out 25 flowers to people hanging out in Lynn Valley Village to put a smile on someone’s face and to celebrate the coming of summer! Thank you Posy for donating the beautiful flowers!

  July #25RAK

In July, in partnership with Green Circle Salons, Zazou planted 250 trees!!!

  August #25RAK

In August Zazou partnered with Delany’s Coffee House to offer 25 free blowdrys to the first 25 patrons of Delany’s to brighten someone’s morning!

  September #25RAK

In September Zazou partnered with Delany’s Coffee House again. We asked Delany’s to offer their first 25 customers on Sept. 30th to let them know their order was on Zazou! We wanted to make someone’s day and put a smile on someone’s face. We did so with success!

  October #25RAK

In October Zazou had the opportunity to help out at North Shore Connect Day held at John Braithwaite Community Centre. Our team was able to provide 55 haircuts to those in need!

  November #25RAK

The Zazou Team volunteered on Sunday, Nov. 19th at the Ronald McDonald House to provide over 100 families with a wonderful stir fry, salad, and some homemade desert. It truly makes a difference to provide families with children undergoing medical treatment with just a little something to help them out.

  December #25RAK

With the support of our guests this December Zazou raised $1,500 towards the Lookout Society!
We asked our guests if they’d like to donate a $1 (or a value of their choosing) that we matched.

Every year Team Zazou collects and brings in their clothes, boots, jackets, or anything else they’d like to contribute to donate to the Lookout Society. This year was a pretty good haul with many of our team member’s donating one or two bags full of clothes that could be put to better use by someone in need this holiday season.
