The Challenge

Go BIG or go HOME!

You know how when there is something that pushes you out of your comfort zone you can find at least a dozen excuses not to do it.

At this time, your bath tub usually is spotless.  Groceries bought.  Bills paid.

Well…you could say this challenge is our little ‘motivation’ to get out of the comfort zone, and get on the phone!

Like most people, cold sales calls push us out of our comfort zone (in fact, you might even say, it pushes us into a cold sweat!), and with 3 children under the age 6, it is REALLY easy to come up with reasons why calls to new retailers didn’t happen that day!

But, we really believe in Spark, and we are REALLY excited about the 2 new products we are launching this fall.

And, the only way we are going to get them in the hands of Canadian families, is to get them into the stores where Canadian families shop!

We believe in the ‘go big or go home’ philosophy, so we are challenging ourselves to find 100 new retailers in just 10 days!

Our kick off is Monday, September 12th and we’ll wrap up on the 23rd (we need every day we can get, so the Sunday won’t count!).

We would truly appreciate your help.

There are so many wonderful toy, book and gift stores that we simply won’t find on our own (and definitely not within the next 10 days!!)

So, if you happen to know a great spot that you think would be interested in Spark games, let us know!

You can post it to our facebook wall, leave a comment below, or email [email protected]

And, when we get our 100 stores we’ll be giving away $1,000 in Spark cards to charity (because giving makes us feel good, and it gives us another strong motivation to ‘ring those phones!)

Looking forward to discovering some great new places across Canada!
