The Ira Zaslow Foundation is proud to host the third annual Holiday of Hope gift-giving program with the help of JBC’ers from all of our offices across the country.
In a few days, we’re heading to P.S. 306 in The Bronx to deliver 785 gifts to each boy and girl. Join us on Instagram (@TeamJBC) as we come together to bring smiles to the faces of every child in attendance.
Until next time, enjoy this video of the team carrying boxes into the workshop for sorting and wrapping. Yes, this is a very intricate process! Happy Holidays!
Employee of the Month – October
The October Employee of the Month is always eager and ready to step up to the challenge. She is driven and has a “GET IT DONE” attitude that helped make October “Rocktober” and she does it all with a smile on her face.
It is an absolute honor to be awarded Employee of the Month. Hard work and dedication always pays off in the end. I couldn’t have done it without my team – a big thanks to all of my peers! Go big or go home and remember to keep smiling.
Get to know Erika. Check out her JBCSpotlight.
It’s not even 12 (EST) and the virtual line is apparently already wrapped around the Internet’s cyber sidewalks. All the best! From our office to yours!
Our very own David Votano is joining the cause! Let’s help him raise men’s health awareness. David is a first-year Mo Bro and he’s trading in his usual clean-shaven look for 30 days to support programs directed by the Movember Foundation that will help combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.
Check out his Mo Space page for more information and to show him some support!

Motano Movember – Day 1
It’s that time of the year again, that one day when it’s socially acceptable to dress up as someone/something else – Halloween. One of the best days of the year, in our opinion. The holiday is just around the corner and tons of spooky décor and costumes are on display in almost every storefront. Costume ideas get more creative each year and the pressure is on to go big or go home. At Team JBC, we go REALLY big and our annual Halloween Contest is taking place this Thursday across all of our offices.
So, where do you get your ghoulish gear? Some of our favorite places to go are labels that carry daring collections year-round and come Halloween, they need only push the envelope slightly further. Black Milk Clothing is a one-stop shop for polyester and spandex pieces to start your costume off right from the most inner layer with everything from skeleton bodysuits to an assortment of creepy-patterned leggings (blood-splattered is an office favorite). Jeffrey Campbell does a spiked-heel like no other and more than likely you already have a pair in your closet as glamorous-punk is their forte regardless of the season or holiday.
Not one to dress up or go all out on a costume? No worries. A few minor details may be enough to show some spirit. Check out Sephora’s Illamasqua Bat Lash Duo or Designer Nail Wraps by NCLA in Web Of Lies or Dracula’s Bride. Urban Outfitters has an entire page (The Halloween Shop) dedicated to Halloween costumes and accessories. Check out some of the treats we came across below:

Employee of the Month – July
Tyler’s commute to and from Connecticut would be easier if she were flying in from Florida, but she arrives and departs each day with a smile. Her thoughtful, kind and caring demeanor makes for all of the right ingredients of a JBC’er.
Removing her measured numbers (which are phenomenal), Tyler is our July Employee of the Month because she continuously strives to be a partner to all of her colleagues. She also manages to excel at her own challenging responsibilities and tackle roles that others steer clear of – all while simultaneously crushing a role with a new client of JBCStyle’s that had not been filled for six months by the client.
How does she do it? We won’t give all of her secrets away, but since joining JBCStyle in July 2012, Tyler has been a rising star and we can’t wait to see what the rest of this year and the years ahead holds for her.
One of Tyler’s favorite quotes pretty much sums up her attitude towards life: “Live every week like it’s Shark Week!”
Shouldn’t we all? Tyler is one shark in the water that you’d be happy to have on your side!
