Hello! My name is Kimi Spigarelli and I am the 2013 Miss Teen Michigan International!! This coming July I will be traveling to the beautiful Chicago, Illinois to compete for the Miss Teen International title! In order to do this, I require quite a lot of funding. The main sponsorship fees are $1,500. There is a required ad that will be placed in the Miss International book, that is to be sponsored; the minumum ad costs $800. Also, hair and makeup is provided by the pageant and is required. It costs $1,200. Along with this, gowns, business attire, the special fitness wear, and other attire needs to be purchased. Being Miss Teen Michigan International has been such a blessing! This particular pageant is platform based, meaning the girls are required to promote an issue throughout the year. I chose Celiac's Disease. Why? Last June I was diagnosed with Celiac's Disease. This disease is caused by the small intestine's inability to produce the proper enzymes to digest the gluten proteins. I have a personal struggle with this disease, so I felt it would be a good opportunity to help those who have it, and also those who could be at risk for developing it. Any donations of any kind will be appreciated. Be it $1, $10, $100.. Whatever it is, I am beyond grateful. This pageant opportunity means worlds to me! Any help would just be amazing!! God Bless!!
