BuildASign.com™ Donates $1,000,000 in Free Signage to Boost Hurricane Affected Economies
Austin, TX- September 15, 2008 - BuildASign.com™ will donate one million dollars in signage to help counties and parishes affected by hurricanes this season prepare for or rebuild from these storms. Anyone on the Gulf or Atlantic coasts who has been or may be impacted by hurricanes can visit www.BuildASign.com/Hurricane to get one free sign as well as additional signs at heavily discounted prices. The online sign retailer hopes that this signage donation will help residents show solidarity and help economies in affected areas get back on their feet quickly.
“My family lost our Lafayette, LA home in Hurricane Lili in 2002 and it’s great to be part of a company now that can give back to people and businesses impacted by hurricanes. We’re hoping that with the help of BuildASign.com’s donated signage, people can show that they are back in business, or will be soon, and towns across the Gulf and Atlantic coasts can return to commerce as usual. We hope the sight of “Open for Business” or “Back in School” banners or a “We survived Gustav” license plate will really lift spirits in hard hit areas.“
-Chelsea Staires, Senior Communications Manager, BuildASign.com
