Looking for Sponsors and Donations

Two months ago Mikella asked if she could participate in the National American Miss Scholarship Pageant, being that I have experience with the whole pageant process I was a bit hesitant and did not want to expose my daughter to some of the uglies that we all see associated with such contests.  After meeting with pageant directors and reading up on all the brochures I felt like this would not only be a wonderful experience for Mikaella but I was also relieved to find out that none of the young girls are allowed to wear makeup, no giant mini dresses, fakes tans, eyelashes, heels, swimsuits and all of that other stuff that only take away the innocence of a child.  

For those of you who are not familiar with the pageant world, contestants are asked to find sponsors.  Sponsors can be anyone from freinds, family and local business that are willing to help support Mikaella financially by donating whatever they can to help her with her many expenses (i.e. registration, wardrobe, excursions etc.)  The sponsor fee is tax deductible for businesses as an advertising expense.  

If you are a business & wish to donate you can make out a check to National American Miss and mail out the check to us at 845 Las Lomas Dr. #D, La Habra, Ca 9063, for smaller donations you can make a check payable to Flavia de Souza or you can make a direct payment to PayPal at  You will receive a receipt for your donation as well as a thank you letter from Miss Mikaella herself :-)

Thank you all so much for your support and GOOOOOOOOOOO MAX!!!
