When I think of a princess the image of Cinderella immediately pops into my mind. Specifically, that famous scene where the clock strikes midnight and Cinderella races to her chariot leaving behind her one glass slipper. If you’ve seen the classic Disney Film (Cinderella, 1950) or know the story, then you know Cinderella had to leave as she was going to change back into a normal girl, as foretold by her fairy godmother. You see, Cinderella shares something very special with our wish children; she wishes to be a princess, just like Summer.
Summer; the warmest season of the year, and the warmest 5 year old kid you’ll ever have the joy of meeting. Summer is the youngest in her family of six, and the special little princess. She loves swimming, her dog Jax and being active in gym at school. But most specifically, Summer is captivated by the glamourous life of a princess. This has inspired her most treasured wish - a special trip to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World. It’s a magical beauty salon where little girls can make their dream of becoming a princess come true!
The Miss Teen Newfoundland & Labrador Pageant is raising $10,000 to grant Summer’s wish, as part of “Exile Island” this September 26th. These real life princesses are coming together for the second year in a row, determined to grant yet another child’s wish here in our province. These community-minded, well-rounded young women with integrity, strong academic & leadership skills, will prove to be unshakable competitors to the other tribes. They are resolute in not only granting Summer’s wish but also in taking the crown as the winning tribe of Exile Island 2014.
Let’s help grant this ideal escape for Summer and her family, away from the day to day management of Summer’s life threatening illness - Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
You can help send Summer to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World.
