Today we worked on finding more ways that we could cover the costs of our card decks. We starting brainstorming about casino nights or have people pick up their decks at Minute Man Press with a DJ style event. But, we finally came up with the genius idea to find a corporation to sponsor the cost of the decks so we can have our fundraiser in a covid-safe manner! If done this way, we could cover all the costs of making 50 (or maybe 100) regular card decks and provide more profit for OBP.
We constructed a template email so that we can easily ask each company for the same thing with our purpose, process, and product. For this, we began working on an elevator pitch for "Cards for a Cause".
Another idea to build on to this is have a title sponsor that goes on the back of the cards with OBP along with local and smaller sponsors that can go on the back of a pamphlet we sell with each of the cards. If we are able to do this, we can maximize the amount that we can raise for OBP.
So for the title sponsor, we went on LinkedIn and company websites and collected any contact information we could find.
Hopefully next week we can send along our ask to each of the companies and hear back!
