Being Part of Team Motion
Hi, Its Kai from Team Motion. Being part of Team Motion comes with a lot of responsibility. The task of raising money and gaining sponsors is much easier said then done. One of the main things that we do here is document what goes on at Children's Media Project. To explain to potential sponsors what we do here becomes repetitive but it makes it an easier task when you have pictures and videos of the youth in action. We all worked together to create a sponsorship kit in which describes what CMP is, all the programs we have here, what we are asking for, and what the company would receive if they did donate. We go upon asking for donations in multiple ways. Team Motion splits into two and some go out and ask companies in person while others call the companies and email some if it is necessary. Rejection is a part of the job. It isn't something that you get use to really quick but none the less it becomes normal and is easier to accept. In my personal opinion asking for donations in person is much more fun and is easier. Some prefer calling but I like being able to see how people are reacting to my proposal. Team Motion is a lot of behind the scenes work that is not often acknowledged but none the less we do stuff this are absolute necessities for this non-profit organization. This program is as if you are part of the marketing department at a business and its GREAT!
