$300* — Kathryn the Grape Event

Music Show, Birthday Party, School Assembly

Sharing engaging music and affirming messages directly with children is one of Kathryn the Grape’s greatest joys. Here’s what some people have said about her visits:

“We hired Kathryn the Grape to provide entertainment at our daughter’s birthday party and were blown away with what she provided. Kathryn the Grape had all of the children singing and dancing and most of the adults, too. We highly recommend Kathryn the Grape!”Mark Winkler

“Kathryn the Grape came to our school and what an amazing experience it was! She conducted two assemblies for the entire student body, and every grade level was engaged with her positive and empowering message. Kathryn Cloward had the students and teachers participate in her assembly, and she even had everyone dancing and singing with her. It was quite a sight to see! Kathryn’s message touched on every key point we could have hoped for, including important real-life stories about bullying and being responsible for our own choices. Kathryn was a bright, energetic, and motivational speaker who was able to connect with students and teachers alike. Kathryn is definitely someone you want your students to know.”Christina Hessom

*Please note: This special discounted price for an one-hour Kathryn the Grape visit (normally $350) is for events in Southern California or via Skype. A travel honorarium is appreciated for Kathryn the Grape visits outside of Southern California.

$3,000 — Katerina Moradina Sponsor

*Be a Book Sponsor for 7 Books &
Associate Producer for 2 Music CDs*

If you or your company would like to have a significant long-term impact in our ability to share positive and affirming messages with children and families throughout the world, sponsoring the new Katerina Moradina Spanish language series of books and music is a terrific way to do so. We’re intent on expanding the messages of Kathryn the Grape throughout the world by translating the books and songs into other languages starting with Spanish (Latin America) in 2018 with the Katerina Moradina series. To help us reach our production and publication goals, we have bundled three sponsorship opportunities into one — saving $450 off individual offerings.

With your contribution to this campaign, your name or company name will be included on the Book Sponsors page at the beginning of every Spanish language Affirmation Series book for the lifetime of the series. This includes paperback and hardcover versions of seven books. Just like the English language series, the publication plan for the Spanish language series includes each book being released initially in paperback. Once all seven books are published, we’ll be offering them in a boxed set as well as printing them in hardcover. With the successful funding of this campaign, we’ll be able to release the first four books in summer 2018, followed by the release of the final three books no later than spring 2019. We’ll also include your name as a Book Sponsor on the Katerina Moradina webpage on the Kathryn the Grape website, on the upcoming Katerina Moradina website and in the paperback coloring books for each of these titles — all of which you’ll receive once published.

Additionally, your name will be included as an Associate Producer on two Katerina Moradina music CDs. We’re in the process of translating each of the current Kathryn the Grape songs into Spanish for Katerina Moradina’s Todos estamos unidos en esto album. With a successful campaign, we’ll be able to maintain our production schedule to be back in the studio to record new vocal tracks and some new instrumentation by summer 2018 for winter 2018 release, followed by the 2019 release of the second CD, totaling 22 Katerina Moradina songs for children and families to enjoy.

—We’ll contact you by email after your transaction processes to obtain the proper spelling of your Book Sponsor and Associate Producer credits. You’ll also receive a surprise Book Sponsor and Associate Producer gift prior to the release of Katerina Moradina.


$5,000 —  TV Show Sponsor

Pilot Episode Featured Sponsor
+ Special TV & Book Series Sponsorship

We’re excited to share Kathryn the Grape with the world through our new TV show. Weaving together music, storytelling, animation and youth as featured guests, this will happen with help from your sponsorship. In today’s evolving media marketplace, independent media companies have never had it so good — being able to access exposure on the same platforms as media giants. And, guess what? Original children’s programming is the most sought after media right now, and we have it! In fact, Kathryn the Grape is quite possible the only independently mom-owned, created, written, and produced brand of mindful media interconnected through an illustrated series of books and music based on a real person featuring real people as characters. No one else is doing what we’re doing now — and we’re ready to take Kathryn the Grape to the next level.

To be able to pitch and secure a programming deal for the Kathryn the Grape TV show, we need to produce a pilot episode. This production will allow us to create the framework and media components to roll out the first season of the show. By contributing to this campaign as a TV Show Sponsor, you’ll help us do that. In exchange for your contribution to help us develop this new platform, your name or company name will be featured at the beginning of the pilot episode as a featured sponsor and in the credits for all episodes to follow for the lifetime of the show. Additionally, you’ll be included as a Kathryn the Grape Book Sponsor with your name in all seven English language Kathryn the Grape Affirmation Series books, offered at $2,450 as shared above. If you desire to align with an expanding independently owned mindful media company in a relatively low-risk/low buy-in “advertising” sponsorship that will provide long-term exposure for your brand across multiple media platforms (TV and books) while helping spread positive messages throughout the world, we joyfully welcome your partnered sponsorship.

$15,000 — Shine Shine Shine Sponsorship

*Co-Executive Producer on 3 Music CDs + More*

More than half of our fundraising goal is directed toward music production. Having already successfully written, recorded, produced, and released five full-length studio albums under the Kandon Unlimited, Inc. label, we’re well aware of all the real costs involved in making an album from start date to release date. By being strategic with bundling production time, we’re able to keep costs lower than industry standards while achieving the same high-quality sound. Original music is an integral component of the series and its long-term development, including the production of the new TV show and even an upcoming musical stage show. Children love singing and dancing to our music — and we want to give them more and more of it. We’re focused on making this happen and we’d love your help in a BIG way.

In honor of your contribution to this campaign, you or your company will be recognized and named:

– Co-Executive Producer — Kathryn the Grape 11-song music CD
– Co-Executive Producer — Two Katerina Moradina 11-song music CDs
– TV Show Sponsor — Pilot Episode + series credits
– Kathryn the Grape Affirmation Series Book Sponsor
– Katerina Moradina Book Series Sponsor

—We’ll contact you after your transaction processes to obtain all the information we need to ensure we provide proper naming credit. You’ll receive all associated products as they’re ready and will be informed of all developments.

 

**Gift of Gratitude**

If you’d like to help us produce more mindful media without receiving an incentive item in return, we’d be extremely grateful to receive any amount you’d like to contribute. While your gift is not tax deductible (Kathryn the Grape isn’t a non-profit organization), you can certainly feel really good knowing we will honor your contribution by using it to help create more books and music that will positively impact children and families for years to come.

Looking Ahead — What’s Coming Up Next?

Complete Merchandising Line of Products — We intend to develop and produce of an entire Kathryn the Grape merchandising line of products. Purposeful from day one, Kathryn Cloward has been intentional about embedding items into each book that are poised for merchandising, including Kathryn the Grape and Maggie dolls, the treasure box and tools (magical wand, charm bracelet, “I am love” silver coins, kindness confetti pouch, unique compass watch, etc.), backpacks, clothing, hats, shoes, journals, musical instruments, and so much more.

Musical Stage Show — We’re in the beginning stages of developing a youth-performed musical stage show that will be available for licensing to musical theatre companies/organizations. We’ll be able to surge forward soon after the original music being produced and released through this campaign is completed.

Major Brand Sponsorship — Kathryn intends to align with one or two major brand sponsors to partner with her company, Kandon Unlimited, Inc. (parent company of Kathryn the Grape) to help bring it all to life and be part of the ripple effect of Kathryn the Grape in a significant way. The major brand sponsor will also be able to have exclusive front of book sponsorship credit for the entire Kathryn the Grape Affirmation Series. If you or your company would like to discuss this opportunity further, contact Kathryn here.
