The families of the 58 deceased victims of the Las Vegas massacre have one less thing thing to worry about – funeral expenses.
Vegas-based Zappos is offering to match up to $1million of its own money to the dollars raised from a CrowdRise fund for those affected by the tragedy.
At time of publishing, the fund had over $401,665, with 100% of the proceeds going toward the Vegas victims families’ expenses.
The company has given $20,000 to three victim’s families so far.
The Zappos website displayed this statement:
“Las Vegas is our home. We are deeply saddened by the events that happened on Sunday, October 1 and are working to ensure our community is supported during this difficult time. Zappos is matching all donations made on CrowdRise, up to $1 million, to help support victims and their families.”
In 1999, Nick Swinmurn founded Zappos as a convenient way to provide customers with the widest variety and greatest availability of shoes. Zappos.com has since expanded to become a family of 10 separate companies operating under the Zappos umbrella.
Their mission is to offer incomparable customer service with every transaction.
The company has added #Vegas Strong to their Logo and website.
