It seems there’s no end to #1 Dad items. We have #1 Dad t-shirts, coffee mugs and more. There seems no end to #1 Dad gift items. One dad I met with recently has been thinking about all this merchandising and come up with an alternative.
Trey Miller runs a mid-sized IT firm in Greensboro, NC by day and like most creative/entrepreneurial types sees things a bit differently.
Origin of Top 10 Dad
As Trey says it, he envisioned a bunch of Dads standing around with their #1 Dad gear. Mix in our usual amount of bravado and testosterone and an argument like “I am the #1 Dad!”, “No, I am the #1 Dad” which devolves into a possible physical altercation is almost sure to happen.
Trey thought about it. His thinking was that any number of Dads would be glad to be a Top 10 Dad, as so Top 10 Dad was born.
And not to just be any brand, Top 10 Dad gives 10% to Heartstrings. Heartstrings supports after the loss of a pregnancy, infant or child.
