      Preserve The Light was birthed out of the vision of a professional cheerleader in Atlanta. Multiple organizations offer spiritual support to the youth, high school and collegiate cheerleader. However, this support simply does not exist at the professional cheer level. Professional cheerleaders are in a unique public spotlight with a very large platform. Preserve The Light wants to minister to the professional cheerleader so that she can better utilize her public platform to share her faith with her community. We have a big vision of chapters in every major city with a strong online network of amazing complete women.

        Down the road, Preserve The Light hopes to become a 501C3 organization. However, rather than spending potential resources on the legal and administrative expenses associated with establishing a charity, Preserve The Light wants to jump right in an minister to current and aspiring cheerleaders. That’s why we’re doing a Kickstarter campaign. We want to cover the costs of creating a great merchandise line and display to set up at music festivals, dance conferences and cheer conventions.

       We feel great about our designs, and have even made samples, but we don’t have the resources to order our initial inventory. That’s where we need your help. We’re already finding great opportunities to share the message of Preserve The Light, but we need to cover our initial inventory start up expenses. Then, instead of continuing to solicit support from donors, we’ll be in a place to fund our future operations through the profits from merchandise sales. 

        We’re not trying to finance any salaries from Preserve The Light! Instead, we’re trying to have a lean operation that lives out its mission to minister to the professional cheerleader.

Risks and challenges

Once we have our initial merchandise line funded, we are confident that we can produce a great product line that will sell well to current and aspiring cheerleaders as well as our supporters. Our big obstacle will be trying to overcome some of the negative stereotypes associated with professional cheerleaders. We want to demonstrate that cheerleaders are more than just pretty faces or cute dancers. We want to show the world that we are a group of amazing women that are ready to let our lights shine for God.
