I am so excited for the opportunity to compete for Mrs.
Washington International 2013 on April 20th, 2013! This organization is all
about highlighting the accomplishments of Washington State's married women, as
well as their passion to serve. I am honored to take my platform of fostering a
sense of community through volunteerism to a state and hopefully national
level. This is a cause I am fiercely dedicated to, and believe I truly live
every day. I am so grateful to have found an organization that, while still a
pageant, places the majority of its emphasis on interview skills, and what you
have been doing with your platform, rather than physical beauty!
When it comes to fostering a sense of community through
volunteerism, in essence what that means is to become more civically engaged.
There are several communities each of us belong to, from our neighborhoods, to
cities, to organizations, our workplaces, and schools. When we know what is
happening in these communities, and actively participate in some way within
them, we develop a more intimate relationship, and thus have more concern and a
sense of ownership to not only the people, but the physical community as well.
Imagine the impact you can have when you feel that connection and act on it!
And volunteering is the perfect outlet to achieve this!
Competing in a pageant is a costly endeavor, but I truly
feel the benefits to those I am able to serve through this opportunity outweigh
the monetary cost. And this is why I'm coming to you as my friends and family,
to help sponsor me in this journey. I cannot do this without your support,
whether it's through funding or emotional support! I am raising money to help cover
travel costs, my entree fee, lodging accommodations, as well as the required
outfits for the different phases of competition.
Would you please consider sponsoring me in any amount? My
goal is to raise $1800, so anything at all, even if it’s just a dollar, gift
card, gas card, etc. will help me reach my goal. Everyone who is a sponsor for
me will have their name listed on my personal thank you ad page in the Mrs.
Washington International program book. If you have a business that would be
interested in buying their own ad page, from business card size to a full page,
please contact me and I will give you more information in that regard. In
addition, as my thank you to you, if you help sponsor in an amount over $50, I
will send you a dessert from my business, Sugar by Charlotte! You will get to
choose from a 6” cake, 1 dozen salted caramels, or 2 dozen gourmet cookies!
I want each of you to know how much I appreciate you, and am
blessed to have you in my life! I hope if nothing else you will consider
supporting me by sending a note of encouragement as I prepare, or by attending
the pageant in April! I can send you ticket information if you would like!
All my love,
Mrs. Whatcom County International
