Dozē was founded in 2012 by a group of friends passionate about bringing people together, celebrating city pride, and raising awareness for social causes. Dozē has since become the bridge between people, social causes and local businesses engaging people with their local community through events called Dozē Days.
1. Community Partners- Dozē works with local non-profits and charities to create fun and engaging experiences for Vancouverites to take part in called Dozē Days. Dozē Days are events that offer an avenue for locals and visitors to easily engage in purposeful, educational and fun group volunteer projects.
2. Creative Design- Dozē collaborates with local artists to create printed designs for our merchandise that celebrate our community and city.
3. Corporate Partners- To sell Dozē merchandise, our corporate partners make a commitment to encourage their staff to get involved in our Dozē Days.
Volunteer Work - Doze Days
Dozē has joined forces with local organizations that need our help! Once a month we host a Dozē Day and invite Vancouverites to join us as we engage in volunteer work while also learning from leaders of our partner organizations! From group beach cleans to a day in the soup kitchen to tree planting, we cater to charitable causes in need, offering new and purposeful experiences for volunteers. By bringing people together and engaging in social causes, we hope to spread the culture of giving throughout our city. It is easy to get involved- follow our blog, like our facebook page, follow us on twitter and instagram, or sign up to be on our Dozē Day mailing list to get the scoop on upcoming and past Dozē Days. We are always open to partnership suggestions and event ideas. If you are running a project that is doing good for our city, let us know and we can promote it through our platform and make our best effort to come out!
May 28, 2013 marked the launch of the Dozē Vancouver Photo Contest. Vancouverites were given the opportunity to share their vision of Vancouver by submitting photos that characterize what Vancouver means to them. Through a local judging panel 12 images were carefully chosen to create the official Dozē Vancouver t-shirt. The criteria included various components, focusing on an artistic portrayal of community and culture.
Thank you to everyone who submitted photos to the Dozē Vancouver Photo Contest. A big congratulations to the winners of the Contest. The 12 images have been selected and the winners have been announced!
