And it's free. Here's how it works! By Jared Nissim, Founder
in June of 2002, I decided I wanted to meet the other people who lived
in my building. I was tired of passing them in the hallway, only to
exchange a nod but never actually getting to know them. My building was
full of seemingly cool people, but there was never an opportune chance
to meet them. So I decided to hold a gathering and invite all my
I printed up a note and slipped it under everyone's
door. It said "Hi, my name is Jared, in #100. I'd like to organize a
gathering so that everyone in our building can meet and get to know
each other. Please write your email address on this form, return it to
me and I will gather everyone's information and organize
something." Over half the people in the building slipped the
note back under my door with their email address. Some even wrote
comments like "Great idea! Thanks for taking the initiative to do this!"
held a gathering and 12 out of 20 residents in the building came. Out
of that one gathering, several relationships & friendships were
born that still exist today. My building became very social and a true
community developed in time. We even joined forces to turn our backyard
patio into a garden oasis where we all took up headquarters to help
each other through the blackout of August, 2003.
I had a hunch
that turned out to be true: Most of the people who lived in
my building wanted to meet each other - they just needed a good
opportunity and reason to do so. I simply took a little initiative and
made it happen.
