100 For 400 FAQ

1. What is the “100 For 100″ campaign?

When people think about companies that donate to causes, they usually think of major corporations making huge donations. The “100 For 400 campaign is a sponsorship program created by Soul Kisses Production because we believe that small-to-medium independent businesses can be powerful grassroots advocates for spreading the message about our upcoming film, Bubbly Brown Sugar because they are frequently run by women or families, and play a vital role in the well-being of their local communities.

“100 For 400″  is a simple and affordable way for small-to-medium independent businesses to publicly support the arts and a socially conscious indie film by making a single US $400 online donation to the Be One Of The 100 Campaign, which comes with a plethora of cross-promotional opportunities that support your small business.
