We found this project where people are placing mini birdhouse-like libraries around a town in Wisconsin giving free books out. This gave us the idea to start leaving little books for people to write in under some Swings. Keep on the lookout for these coming up!

We have also been thinking about creating some type of pick-up and drop off boxes for Swings around town for those that want to paint one at home and leave it back for us!

What do you think?

The diminutive, birdhouse-like libraries, which Brooks and Bol began installing in Hudson and Madison, Wisconsin, in 2009, are typically made of wood and Plexiglas and are designed to hold about 20 books for community members to borrow and enjoy. Offerings include anything from Russian novels and gardening guides to French cookbooks and Dr. Seuss. Read More

We had the opportunity to contribute to Tampa Bay Wave‘s fundraiser to end tech homelessness. The Roosevelt 2.0 hosted the Wave’s Splash Bash event which included a spectacular night of mingling, munching, and swinging! The event played host to a wide range of company founders, business investors, and technology enthusiasts from the Tampa Bay Area.

We were invited to hang a Swing for the event, and had a specially painted Swing with the Tampa Bay Wave’s logo to raffle off to raise money towards their new co-working space.

This was hung inside the Roosevelt 2.0 and will stay permanently!

We love donating Swings to other non-profits! We have and are currently working with Clinica Verde, Habitat for Humanity Pinellas, Tampa Bay Wave Creative Clay, UPARC, and My Hope Chest for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Have a great idea for a way to work with us? Email Reuben to get in touch!
