Mikayla Holmgren - Miss MN USA
I applied to the Miss Minnesota USA Pageant not knowing if I would be accepted. And, that is all I want...to be accepted.
Well, I am in. The cost was a little more than I was expecting. The money raised will go towards the entrance fee, gown, swimsuit, interview outfit, shoes, hair and makeup, and other incidentals.
I want the world to know that Down Syndrome does not define me. With your help, I can help break through walls.
I thank you so much in advance. I will keep you all informed on the progress.
We will be submitted the final sponsor list soon. So if you donate more than $100, your name will in the program.
Let's show support for our Down Syndrome Community. Help Mikayla be a role model for so many little girls with Down Syndrome. To show our society what real inclusion looks like. That those with special needs have the same hopes and dreams.

During Down Syndrome Awareness Month, I will be asking for help to reach my goal. By supporting me, you are helping the Down Syndrome community to continue leaning towards inclusion. By me being a part of this, I am giving hope to other families and for young people to reach for their goals...to show society that inclusion works.

Life has been busy lately, with studying, practicing on the dance team and starting my internship at the Children's Museum in St. Paul. But, it is about to get busier as I prepare for the Pageant.
I am falling short financially. I still have items that need to be paid for...Nails, Hair and Makeup, Alterations, and numerous other miscellaneous items that seem to pop up.
This is Down Syndrome Awareness Month.
So, I am looking for donations of $21 during the month of October to represent my 21st chromosome x3!
Also, check out my story at www.becauseicanonline.com and enter a chance to win a pair of VIP tickets for the pageant weekend.
Please help me reach my goal.
If you know of anyone who is willing to be a nail sponsor, have them get ahold of me! They can either donate $$ to help cover the cost, or it can be a salon near me that can donate. Thanks
Family and Friends. I know this is a long shot I really do but since the holidays are around the corner and the feeling of love and giving is in the air I have a request. I am trying to raise money to help start my own home business. If you want to take the time to read this link then thank you ! If not, no hard feelings. Thank you for your time ! https://www.gofundme.com/averys-new-adventure-in-life

Hello my name is Shabine and I am so very happy and proud of your accomplishments. You have inspired me to write a book depicting Down syndrome in a positive light. The world needs to know that someone with Down syndrome can indeed accomplish their dreams and goals. My book called the Esteem princess Chronicles: Ariah and the cure depicts exactly that. Check it out on publishizer; search for The Esteem Princess Chronicles. Or on Facebook page of The Esteem Princess Chronicles. It would be an honor to get your review and feedback! You can also find me on Facebook by the name Shabine Germain Ps: I will make a donation this weekend to your cause. Hope to hear from you.
