Have you ever launched on a journey that took you completely out of your comfort zone and exposed you to new knowledge and understanding that forever changed how you view the world? Please bear with me for a moment as I share with you my adventure that is doing just that.
Earlier this year, I was honored with the opportunity to become a delegate for the Mrs. Idaho America pageant. Initially, I was excited to participate and compete for the opportunity to represent the great state of Idaho, as it challenged me to move beyond my comfort zones. However, it has grown to be so much more. In case you are not aware, the Mrs. Idaho America Competition (held on October 18th, 2014) has been in existence for 38 years and is an exciting and rewarding program that recognizes Idaho’s married women and is the official state preliminary to the prestigious Mrs. America Pageant.
I was drawn to the pageant as it both celebrates the dreams, and goals of America’s most valuable resource - the married woman but also educates these women about important and often unknown civic causes that very much need the public’s attention. For instance, I most recently was moved by learning about Family Advocate’s foster care program and just how many children within Idaho struggle to have a voice and find a safe home in which to grow up. I found this incredible as I am a 30 year old native of Idaho and did not have the slightest awareness of this situation.
As a stay at home mom of three great children, I have been fortunate to serve in a very active capacity for many non-profit organizations such as Ride for Joy, Wildland Firefighter Foundation, Relay For Life, soccer clubs, and our school’s PTA. I have never been in a position like this that allows me to make contributions on a deeper and farther reaching level.
In order to participate in this pageant and be able to continue my quest to make a broader impact in our community, it is necessary to obtain sponsorships. I know you are often approached to support important community projects and I am hoping that you will also consider my request one of priority. Sponsor amounts range from $25.00 to $500.00 and your sponsorship fee may be tax deductible as a business expense. I am also looking for pageant items and services. In exchange for your support, your business will be recognized in our beautiful program book and in my social media outlets and blogs. I will plan to follow up with you before March 28th so that your business can receive the most exposure possible. Thank you for your time and consideration of this request.
