October, 2012 :: Furniture 4 Kids
This year several of our designers collaborated on an entry for the ‘ROCK-THE-BOX’ Design Competition, part of the 2012 Furniture 4 Kids charity fundraiser. Our sweet entry—“Dallas Rocks!”—was judged and auctioned off alongside other bespoke boxes at the event, with proceeds going to the Mavs Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas and Fort Worth.
Since 2006, Furniture 4 Kids has raised over $80,000 to directly support and provide for needy area children. Participants and attendees of the event include designers, architects, creative organizations, a variety of manufacturers who provide products to the architecture and design community. In addition guests include the Dallas Mavs organization and Mavs Foundation Supporters, representatives and supporters of Ronald McDonald House, and general community friends and supporters of Furniture 4 Kids.
October, 2012 :: Halloween
We had a SPOOK-TACULAR time at the idGROUP. Each team took time to come up with an idea for their costume.
- Retail – Favorite Rock Stars
- Restaurant – Employees from their clients’ businesses
- FedEx – High School Stereo types
- Regus – Texas State Fair
- TD – Wild Witches
As you walked around the office you saw employees dressed as Lit Ford, Taco Bell workers, purple haired witches, cotton candy, and even Big Tex
made an appearance! Thanks to everyone who participated! Everyone looked Boooooo-tiful!
August, 2012 :: College Spirit Day
August, 2012 :: 5th Annual Blood Drive
This year we once again teamed up with Carter BloodCare to collect blood for the D/FW community. Every day close to 800 patients in North Central and East Texas need timely blood transfusions to survive. Blood donors make organ transplants possible and help patients survive surgeries, cancer, accidents, life-threatening burns and other medical conditions.
We had 12 volunteers who donated a total of nine pints of blood. That amount could help save up to 27 lives!
June, 2012 :: Lakewest Skilled Care
With the help of The Senior Source we took a trip to Lakewest Rehabilitation and Skilled Care.
Through our “SOCK HOP” we collected 118 pairs of socks for the residents. We went on June 5th to meet the residents, pass out socks to all 92 of them, dance to some 50’s music (yes, some of them did dance!), and eat a variety of ice cream treats we brought for everyone to enjoy.
We had a great time and were able to spend some quality time with the residents talking and laughing out loud!
