“Dollar a Day” Fundraising Challenge

Miss World America 2019 – Emmy Cuvelier invites all prospective titleholders to join her for the “Dollar a Day” Fundraising Challenge on social media in support of her Beauty with a Purpose project – “The Magic in the Miracles: Making Magic for Children with Critical Illness”. 

NOTE – This challenge is not required, will not guarantee contestants a spot in Miss World America 2020 finale, and will not affect their score. Rather, it is a sisterly invitation to join in efforts to serve sick and injured children in need. 

As COVID-19 has had a drastic impact on the entire world, high-risk children in children’s hospitals around the U.S. have been quarantined in hospital rooms for long periods of time with no visitors or outside sources of entertainment allowed to enter. As hospitals do their very best to continue to provide quality entertainment like crafts, books, movies, and toys for the sick kids in their care, funds are running short. 

You can help provide a source of joy and happiness for a hospitalized child by participating in the “Dollar a Day” Fundraising Challenge for Blank Children’s Hospital’s “Be Like Blank” campaign! Here’s how the challenge works:

Overview: For every dollar raised by each young woman, Miss World America – Emmy Cuvelier is challenging contestants to either 

A) give up something from their daily life or 

B) add something to their daily life in support of the kids! 

For example, Emmy will personally be giving up her daily Starbucks/Coffee for a day for every dollar that is raised AND will be donating her own daily Starbucks money for one month to Blank Children’s Hospital. 

Challenge Dates: This fundraising challenge will last 5 days, from 7/27/20 – 7/31/20.
