I am not quite sure what to think about this , where to go, or what to DO.
Someone showed me this website about a month ago. I loved the idea and just knew I should do it. In trying to find some help, even simple help as having one other person just work with me for 2 hours, I get no where. Got nothing. And people just turn around and look somewhere else.
To me, cleaning is the easiest and least amount of investment someone can do for someone else.
once i really started digging through this site I noticed that by putting my name and my little 'company' up there that I would be the only person
in the entire state of texas offering this.
That... can NOT be right.
How is it that the entire state of texas has no other volunteers?
Is it that no one knows about it?
Asking that question got me thinking..... what if I could get someone to sponsor me. A company could give 40 bucks for a two hour cleaning once a year and sponsor me to do it for someone else.
Hmm.. neat idea.
Ok, so what if I could find enough companies to have at least 4 different cleanings a month while still keeping the company to only 40 or 50 bucks for a donation.
sounds simple enough.
Then.. i thought .. why stop there.. why not turn this into a small non profit. Minimal charge from the client ( 1.00 if I have to for tax purposes or other rules) and create a company that does only free or low cost cleaning to people with cancer.
I could hire a hand full of people, keep it small and personal and just have large companies ( or companies and people who are willing) to sponsor the cleaning so that we at least have money to cover supplies and pay.
My brain is steady going forward.
Now........... what do I need to know about a non profit?
What should I read to learn?
Where should I go to get information?
Im googling basic questions and ideas.. I just want to know if anyone here has experience, or advice?
I would love to have this up and working in 6 months or less.
