When cold weather strikes, warm clothing could make all the difference for someone down on their luck. Our goal is to boost kindness by making the #GIVtake easier.
GIV is an eye-catching hanger that attaches to any sign post to encourage your community to donate warm clothes for those in need. GIV is designed to simplify the act of both giving and receiving. Once installed on a sign post, GIV acts as an inviting beacon, drawing in passersby to leave behind a warm item of clothing and then providing a judge-free pickup spot for someone to grab a layer of warmth.
The GIV hanger has been thoughtfully designed and iteratively tested to be 3D printed, quickly installed, and durable for lasting use. We are sharing the GIV 3D print file freely with the hope that anyone around the world will print and hang a hook in their hometown to spread the warmth.
Resolution: 200 Microns
Print Orientation: The hook must be printed face down. The model in the print file is positioned in the correct orientation for printing.
1: Determine which type of sign post is most common near you (U-Channel or Square).
2: Select the print file accordingly.
Installing Your GIV Hanger
