One of the best ways to get a philanthropic message across is through public speaking. Now cause speakers can solicit donations from their fans to get out and speak on topics such as domestic violence, animal rights, homelessness, and more.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2014
Speaker Sponsor has become known as an online matchmaker between speakers and the small businesses that want to sponsor them. But now theyve added a new service, crowd-funding for speakers.
I heard so many people say theyd love to spread the word about a particular cause, but that they werent speakers themselves, says Speaker Sponsor CEO, Julie Austin. So, I thought, why not have crowd-funding for speakers, so their voices could be heard, and cause speakers could get paid. Speaker Sponsor cause speakers have topics such as domestic violence, animal rights, and homelessness.
The way it works is that a cause speaker solicits donations from the Speaker Sponsor site, and they basically have an ongoing project. Its up to the speaker to arrange their own speaking engagements or to be hired by a meeting planner for a free speaking engagement. Then the speaker is paid through donations from their fans, who believe in their cause.
Crowd-funding for speakers at Speaker Sponsor is different from Kickstarter, which is about particular projects that have a deadline, and a limit that has to be met. On Speaker Sponsor, a cause speaker is given as much time as they want to get out and speak on their cause, but the longer they wait, the fewer donations they will likely get. Speakers who are the most active will get the most traffic. And that means keeping their fans up to date on what theyre doing and where theyre speaking.
Usually a popular speaker is one who has a good story to back up their cause.
Justina Page and her son Benjamin were badly burned in a house fire, which also took the life of her son Amos. Now she travels around the country speaking about fire safety and prevention. Anyone who is passionate about that cause can donate to Justina through her Speaker Sponsor page, so she can go out and spread the word about fire safety.
Best selling author and speaker Michael Solomon is spreading the message about philanthropy itself. To quote Michael, When you give, dont give until it hurts, give until it feels good.
Speaker Sponsor continues to be the leader in sponsorship for speakers, creating opportunities for speakers, and marketing partnerships for the small business community.
