Jaidah - Update #2

On February 26th, I supported the Children's Miracle Network at IHOP with my little pageant sister, Ember. We laughed, ate pancakes and talked about how we can help the kids under the For A Day Foundation. Ember said she wanted to help. She collected 20 crowns from some of her friends to help support the cause. I collected 20 as well; I had to match my little counterpart. 

We secured a sponsorship with the Waffle House to provide all of the breakfast food for our event (Bunny Breakfast Benefit). We also had to move the date to 3/31/2018 to accommodate the sponsors. 

Last week, my mother and I came up with a list of businesses to approach for sponsorship. I am visiting them in person and mailing letters to ask for their support. I'm also applying for a teen volunteer job with the UK hospital for the summer. They only accept teens during the summer and open the application process for 30 days, so I am excited to see if I am accepted.

My Goals & Progress from Week 1 - Jaidah

The first week of connecting with the Director of the foundation, measurable goals were established. I will help bring awareness to the community about the national program and support the Director with fundraising efforts to purchase tiaras, nail polish, and make-up for the organization as a whole. 

- I've set a goal to host a Benefit Breakfast to support the foundation on March 24, 2018 in Lexington, KY.   

- I've partnered with a pageant director in Atlanta, Georgia to host a tiara drive in October 2018.

- I'm currently raising funds online through my Facebook Fanpage and a virtual tiara drive.
