Hi, its AmandaGrace!
Many know that my family has just come across the one year anniversary of the tragic loss of my cousin Sean to suicide. But we are not letting this stay a tragedy. Last January I became an ambassador for a nonprofit called The Peyton Heart Project. PHP creates yarn hearts attached with an inspirational quote and the suicide hotline and are put in public places for people to find in their everyday lives.
It's quite amazing to see how a little yarn can make a difference in someone's life and see someone post a picture of a heart with Sean's name on it and say “because of this I didn't take my life today”. Through Sean's death others are finding the light in their darkness and I would like to expand this platform through the Miss America Organization. I strongly believe that through this organization more people can be reached with my platform “The Peyton Heart Project: Infinite Reasons to Live”. To compete im needing to raise $300 for The Children's Miracle Network and am looking anyone who would be willing to sponsor me. I know that pageants aren't the most conventional way to expand my platform but i've put a lot of thought into it and i feel that this is the best way to go.
Thank you for your consideration and please remember that you are important, its a bad day not a bad life, and there are Infinite Reasons to Live.
Lots of Love,
