Your family, relatives, co-workers and friends can provide the best help in finding sponsors for you. We recommend either approaching individuals or small businesses that have enjoyed your support over the years. They may know you or your famiy, and have relied on you as a customer. Now you can ask for their help in return. Examples would be doctor, dentist, photographer, insurance agent, florist, beauty salon, boutique, dress shop, health club, jeweler, etc don't overlook the possibility of getting smaller contributions from neighbors, friends, and relatives. Many delegates have gathered quite a large portion of sponsorship from “collections” made at work, a parent’s workplace, a club, a fundraising dinner with friends, or even by simply starting up a www.gofundme.com page and post it on all your social media sites such as facebook for financial contribution support. Otherwise, know the business well enough to know what you can offer them in return for sponsorship – modeling for their clothes, hostess for home or office builders, commercials for restaurants, auto dealers and health clubs. Do not overlook services or merchandise donations – airfare from a travel company, rental of gowns, hair, nail, cosmetics and health care, alterations, photos, etc. Each donation is an amount you can deduct from your overall dollars to be prospected.
