Jamaica Pageant of Hope
What is the The Pageant of Hope?
The Pageant of Hope™ gives children and teens who face serious illnesses and challenges the opportunity to be Prince or Princess for a day. It is a noncompetitive pageant that invites kids of all ages to shine in the spotlight in front of family and friends and be celebrated for who they are. Everyone is a winner in the Pageant of Hope™. The “Has-Been Beauty Queens” (HBBQs), treat participants to an afternoon of pampering, followed by each child having the opportunity to walk across the stage in the spotlight, looking his or her best and feeling like a million dollars. Every participant receives a special pageant title and a crown to wear, and two lucky contests receive the title of Prince of Hope and Princess of Hope.
The Jamaica pageant was such an amazing and rewarding experience. We had the opportunity to feed the homeless through a local organization called Open Heart Charitable Mission. We participated in one of their daily feedings and put a smile on the faces of many local Jamaicans. Next, we held a Pageant of Hope for children coming from low self-esteem groups in orphanages. Our mission was to make the girls feel like princesses for a day, teaching them to let their inner-beauty shine. We did their hair, nails, make-up, interview, and taught the pageant walk. At the end of the day, we crowned 30 princesses and prince’s.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the beach as well. We even got to attend an awesome event where we walked the red carpet and snapped a couple of photos on the Step & Repeat. Check out the photo gallery below of our Jamaican adventures.
