AUSTIN, Texas, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- BuildASign.com gives away over 3 Million dollars in free welcome home banners and jumbo cards to friends and family of the US military. Since 2008, through the widely received Troops Giveaway at www.BuildASign.com/Troops, tens of thousands of servicemembers have been welcomed home with memorable, personalized banners and signs at very low cost to their loved ones.
Through the giveaway webpage at www.BuildASign.com/Troops, customers can choose from sizes and design options, customize their banner or jumbo card with photos, text, and clipart, and order right from home, paying only for shipping.
BuildASign.com™ initially launched its banner giveaway to donate 10,000 welcome home banners to supporters of US servicemembers in honor of Independence Day 2008. Due to the overwhelming response, the company re-launched the giveaway for Veterans Day of that year and has kept the giveaway going now for two years. To date, BuildASign.com has given away over 84,000 welcome home banners and jumbo cards totaling over $3,022,000 in retail value and intends to continue giving indefinitely.
"When we launched our initial giveaway in July of '08, we thought it would take us years to give away our first 10,000 banners. We were shocked when they were gone within two weeks. Clearly a need was there and we knew we had to find a way to meet it. It's been an amazing privilege to give to the military community this way over the past couple of years. It has become a source of great pride for our staff- it's very personal for us."
-Andy Knopp, Director of Operations at BuildASign.com™
