A LEADER WITH A CAUSE A Vision of Restoration SPRINKLE THE LOVE TO THE NEXT GENERATION

Our vision is to one day open Nina’s Cakes for a Cause Bakery where profits can be used to

Rebuild Community, Restore Families and Revive a Childs Spirit in the InterCitys as we partner with Community leaders and After School Programs that harbors safe places for all kids to learn sustainable skills while staying off the streets. In the meantime, Philanthropist, Entrepreneur, Community Leader and Pastor. Malcolm-Xavier M.Div. relies on his resources and the generous donations from people like YOU to continue to help the Cakes for A Cause Project become a success. “As an African American male it grieves me to how youth of America are on a fast track tragedy of violence and limited exposure and access to opportunities”. Sagging pants is not the issue but a symptom of a bitter societal conundrum. It is a sad fact that one out of every three black males born in America is served a precondition diagnoses they can expect a stay in prison. Our next generation will fail to exist if an immediate intervention does not result to sweeten the deal.

FUNDRAISING FAQ’S Frequently Asked Questions PROFITABLE I FAST I SIMPLE I AFFORDABLE I SUCCESSFUL

Q: How much can we make? A: That is one of the best parts about a Nana's Cakes for a Cause make a lot of money. The amount of profit depends on the cost and selling price which varies from market to market. In most markets, the profit is at least 50% and may increase the more you purchase.

Q: What about delivery? A: It is true that we offer delivery but we ask our community partners to ad in our delivery. Generally there are minimums for delivery (usually around 50 units of cakes, pies or cookies) and there may be a delivery fee based on the number of dozens delivered or the mileage involved.

Q: What's new and Coming Soon? A: You will always want to offer a variety to your customers but you also want to keep it simple. It is a natural fit to offer Nana’s Garment Coffee along with any cake pie or cookie program. You can add certificates with any program as long as the customers purchasing the certificates are close enough to an actual Ninas House where they can use them. We recommend if you are selling cards that you just sell cards.

Q: If I pick up my cakes how many dozen can I get in my car? A: You should be able to fit 25 cakes in the empty trunk space of most cars. If you don’t have your two little sisters and the family dog in the back seat, you should be able to get another 10 easily in the back seat.

Q: What if we have a small group, can we still do a Ninas Cakes for a Cause fundraiser? A: Yes. Nina has very low minimums for fundraising orders. Most market’s minimums are 25–50 items. Many small groups do a “direct sale” fundraiser in which they purchase a set number of dozens and sell them directly to the public on that day. This can be done at a football game, school carnival, or any event or high volume retail outlet that will have a crowd of hungry folks wanting to buy some Cakes for a Cause.
