I REALLY WANT TO GO TO ALLUME AND I NEED YOUR HELP

I really want to go to Allume this year! But I can't do it by myself. I am going to need sponsors. I am also trying to raise the money anyway that I can. I have participated in a consignment sale, I have a Facebook album of items for sale that is specifically to raise money for Allume, and I am looking to find other ideas to raise money as well. Do you want to help? Keep reading for how you can. 

This year I am looking to learn more and expand my blog to a wider audience. One way to do this is through attending conferences. I am specifically looking at the Allume conference in South Carolina in October. Allume is a conference “to minister to the woman, the blogger, the story teller. We want to love well, encourage, and spur women on to shine the Light that lives within them. We want to serve you in ways that cultivate the Light of Christ in you, help you expand your influence, use your influence well (in your home, your community, or around the world) and encourage you with stories of those who are living out that Light.” You can find out more about Allume by visiting www.allume.com.

There are several costs involved with attending Allume that I need help with. I had hoped to purchase my ticket without sponsor assistance but it is simply more than a one income household of 6 can afford. Here is a cost breakdown estimate:

Allume Costs

Ticket = $279 (This includes all meals!)
Hotel = $445 (Iam hoping to find a roommate to reduce this cost.)
Travel- $400 ( I am planning on driving at this time because the conference is only 6 hours away. With rising gas prices this is a estimate.)


You can see where there is a need for money. I am offering a few sponsorship levels at this time but I will also be happy to accept any sponsorship you feel you can provide. Of course all sponsorships will need to be approved as Hentown Mama is a family oriented blog.


The Bronze Package :: $50

  • Social Media exposure using the #allume hashtag for greatest impact. Mentioned at least 5 times on twitter &/or facebook—before, during, and after the conference.
  • 125×125 ad space for 4 months.

The Silver Package :: $100

  • Your logo or ad and/or a text link on my conference sponsorship page until the end of 2013.
  • Social Media exposure using the #allume hashtag for greatest impact. Mentioned at least 5 times on twitter &/or facebook—before, during, and after the conference.
  • 125×125 ad space for 6 months.

The Gold :: $200

  • One blog post (including a giveaway of a product of your choice) on hentownmama.blogspot.com, specifically focusing on your company/product/blog.
  • Promotion of your company/product during the conference. (This can include wearing, carrying, or using a product that you provide, and posting a live photo on instagram and twitter.)
  • Your logo or ad and/or a text link on my conference sponsorship page until the end of 2013.
  • Social Media exposure using the #allume hashtag for greatest impact. Mentioned at least 5 times on twitter &/or facebook—before, during, and after the conference, plus 3 other mentions of your choice in 2013.

The Diamond Package :: $500

  • Two-post series (including a giveaway of a product of your choice) on my blog, hentownmama.blogspot.com, specifically focusing on your company/product/blog.
  • Text links at the bottom of every post I write about Allume (minimum of 3), giving you permanent added exposure on my blog/RSS feed/email subscriptions long after your ad space expires.
  • Promotion of your company/product during the conference. (This can include wearing, carrying, or using a product that you provide, and posting a live photo on instagram and twitter.)
  • Your logo or ad and/or a text link on my conference sponsorship page until the end of 2013.
  • Social Media exposure using the #allume hashtag for greatest impact. Mentioned at least 5 times on twitter &/or facebook—before, during, and after the conference, plus 10 other mentions of your choice in 2013.
  • 300×250 ad space for 6 months, or through Allume (whichever is longer at the time of purchase).


If you do not see a sponsorship package that works for you I will happily work with you to create a package unique to you and your business. Per the conference regulations, I cannot pass out samples, products, or business cards (other than my own) during the conference.


If you are interested in sponsoring me for the Allume conference I would love to talk to you! Please email me at prattlaura@ymail.com

Of course I will be sharing everything that I learn with all of you! Only 8 more months!
