Miss Universe Canada
is the preliminary to one of the biggest and most notable pageants in HISTORY- Miss Universe! Your local British Columbian and Okanagan gal, Shanelle Connell, has been selected to compete this summer in July.
Along with this honourable opportunity to compete... are some expenses that Shanelle needs help affording. She can't do it without the support of her friends, family, community and even strangers. Shanelle has a limited time to raise the funds that pay for her pageant expenses, including travel fees and more, to make sure she can attend the nationals confident with her financial position.
Along with being a pageant delegate, Shanelle is a hard working student at the University of British Columbia. She has not been able to work this year with her heavy course load and is scrambling to pay the fees to get to Toronto for the Miss Universe Canada pageant.
Even small donations can help in the biggest of ways- you'll be enabling Shanelle to pursue her goals and missions when it comes to her platform of raising Mental Illness Awareness on a global scale. As well as, you'll get her to a position where she'll be able to advocate for both women and men that are facing deep-set repercussions from both domestic/mentally abusive relationships. Shanelle would like to bring these issues to the forefront in Canada, and make sure that these people have a voice amongst all the people that tell you to just "get over it".
