As we reflect our experiences in our first year, we could not be more proud of our efforts in 2017. The experience in trying to help others through the cultivation and advancement of an idea to become a nonprofit and develop the Dollar Giving platform has been humbling and exciting. The opportunity to help other nonprofit organizations in our community achieve their goals, extend their reach and make a difference in the lives for people is something we’re beyond appreciative for. Realizing some successes and many other nonprofit organizations wanting to participate, we are diligently working on our platform relaunch come this spring. Realizing the business model and platform will change and evolve substantially in the upcoming months, our values will be the same. Cultivate new donors, bring visibility and start local movements and opportunities to bring the community together. Thank you for your support and see you in 2018!

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, CT. “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 we 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 partners 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.
