iPoiz - home made 'NZ Poi'
Looking to start my business up and seeking a boost!
I want to be able to continue and extend sharing and distributing this awesome resource/product throughout Aotearoa and the world - production and supply of custom and ready to order 'Poi'
Cost seeking to be covered:
- Work space (out of home)
- Storage for the 'making' equipment
- Storage for finished products
- Supplies for making Poi
- Packaging and Labeling
- Website and social media setups
- Extra/Backup funds for any other incurable costs
Also would like to raise enough to be able to allow me to give away some poi packs (10 pairs) to a few schools, early childhood educators, or groups. This initiative will also be apart of the future of this business.
Some basic coverage of past and present evidence to the vision:
Back in my school days I was making and distributing poi locally - to businesses and individuals/groups of the community in my hometown.
It wasn't until I had my own children and they were submerged into the Maori culture and festivities of Kapa Haka where the poi, is now, most commonly used that I took up a likening to it again and began to supply and make our towns 'Kohanga' their performance poi for the annual tribal festival.
From then I begun picking up clientele interested in purchasing, for themselves, their young ones or their elderly as gifts or personal development tools. I fulfilled any request of this nature during my free time, as otherwise worked full time.
The past two months, my world has drastically changed, and have had to relocate to new city, without any support or relief from this difficult situation. This has left my children and I to be riding solo - which is a shock to the system, but I feel the urge to push and pursue this opportunity of a new income source, and freedom to be able to keep enjoying this time being a Mum and watching my children grow and leading a new life!
So, concluding that novel - please if you are able to support me in this new (new again) venture and me get the wheels on this wagon rolling and enable me to start this up! I'd be ever so thankful and will try my hardest to show you appreciation, with a pair of these Poi for you, in return.
