Dollar Giving Believes In Signs

Serendipitous, that is how Bobby Nims, Founder of Dollar Giving  explained the “sign” he stumbled on at a street sale in Hartford. “I was next door at Hog River Brewery after an engaging meeting with ReSet, when I came across this monster six-foot red sign with huge letters that read DOLLAR, that probably lit up a storefront in the 80’s.”

“We had just launched Dollar Giving already had about 1,000 +  hits to our website, and I thought I have to do something with this sign! What are the odds of coming across a huge old Dollar sign?”

Determined to make a mark in Hartford the sign was given a tour of the city one beautiful sunny afternoon in June. It’s debut caused a lot of attention, spray painted bright orange and green, DG’s signature colors,  Bobby and one of his partner’s Erin Brallier transported it from one location to another snapping photos.  No easy task given the weight, awkward shape, metal material (still smelling like fresh spray paint) parking and lengthy walks to outrageous locations!  Dollar Giving was connecting with the community, making their presence known, and turning heads dedicated to raise awareness for a crowdfunding platform they believe will change lives.

So what is next for the resurrected sign? Follow Dollar Giving on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see where it lands next, and opportunities to get engaged all for a good cause in your own backyard.
