Hey Sparkland! As some of you may already know, I have been training for my first figure competition for some time now. It is now down to the nitty gritty - my contest is in less than 12 weeks, and I need your help.
I have devoted many hours/days/weeks/months of my life towards this goal, as well as every single spare dollar I have found (and some support from really good friends). I am making myself broke in order to realize this dream, and I wouldn't have it any other way. But therein lies my issue. This competition has been far more expensive to prepare for than I originally expected, and with my oven being absolutely horrendous, my secondary line of income via selling my baked goods has been slower than I'd like. I am completely tapped out, so I've come to appeal to anyone here who finds my story, and my goal, worth supporting.
I have created a GoFundMe campaign to help finance the items and services I require leading up to, as well as on the day of, the contest. This includes, but is not limited to, my coach, my posing suit and shoes, hair and makeup services for the show, and building up colour via spray tanning (Since I am very prone to sunstroke, this is my only real option. And, when you are as pale as I am, it takes a few sessions to say the least). Every little bit helps, and takes a bit of stress off my mind so I can focus more on the task of getting myself ready for this.
If you believe I am worth supporting, please visit the following link. And thank you all in advance for any and all donations that will help me on my journey to the stage!
