Sponsoring question?

A good friend of mine has a 9 year old son. He just got into BMX racing this summer and hasn't placed below 2nd in any race. He has made it to the point where he is taking a trip to Disney World at the end of the summer. If he continues to do well he will go onto nationals and be in the intermediate classification.

My question for you ladies is about sponsoring. It is going to cost no less than 2500 for a 3 day trip down there to win regionals. Any suggestions or ideas to get sponsoring.

Also, she has an ebay account and doesn't know how to work it. If anyone can send me a message to help me get the idea on how to post for her would be great because she paints and wants to start selling so he can get going on the trip!

(Yard sale won't work because of where she lives and we can't do one here either)

  • As far as eBay goes there is a help section that answers most questions. And selling tutorials. For pictures she would have to upload pics onto her computer and then she can add them to a eBay slaes listing. Hope that was helpful.

    The child should approach relatives and friends and ask if they would like to help sponsor his trip. He could sell lemonade, go around and offer his services for yard work, etc and say he is earning money for the trip. He could have hand outs so people see he is working towards something legit. They might be more generous that way!

  • Look into local businesses. They are usually more than happy to help kids out with something like this!
