Precious Wonders erects its Angel Network Christmas Tree for the women and children of Total Blessings Shelter, Inc., on September 30, 2013. The saying goes that unto whom much is given much is required. Precious Wonders makes a charitable effort to give back to the community via its Precious Wonders Angel Network Christmas Tree program.
The Total Blessings Shelter Inc. is a battered women and children crisis shelter and transitional center, located in North Texas. The shelter services any woman or child from any city or state.
To some, pageantry may be considered a frivolous venture. However, to those who are involved with them, pageants are a serious business. In 2012, the glitz pageantry industry alone was estimated at over $5 billion industry. Natural pageants have made a huge leap into the spotlight after the unfortunate death of pageant doll Jon Benet. Even with the lack of hair weave, loads of makeup and fake teeth, the elaborate dresses and themed costumes, even in natural pageants, can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars.
Pageants take place throughout the year and throughout the United States, including Atlanta, Georgia. It is not uncommon for contestants to travel to compete in different states and pageant systems. Some pageant systems may even provide pageant competitions outside of their primary home city/state. The Pageant Center has been cataloging pageantry events since 1998.
Precious Wonders is a natural pageant system that is home-based in Duncanville, Texas. Contestants ranging in ages from infant to seventeen years compete for title and crown in a variety of categories and pageant themes.
“We provide exciting, friendly and fun competitions. The girls learn public speaking and showcase their beauty and talents. The winners of our competitions are positive role models in their communities.” ~Van Jones, Pageant Director, Precious Wonders
Precious Wonders conducts periodic pageants to help build confidence and raise self-esteem in girls and boys by creating opportunities for training in poise and improved articulation. Pageant Director Van Jones said she is excited to see the costumes that will be worn by contestants in the next Precious Wonders pageant, entitled “Absolutely Boootiful”, which is scheduled to be held, on October 26, 2013, in Duncanville, Texas. This special-edition Halloween pageant features “no pageant dresses needed, child friendly costume required”.
Precious Wonders has taken yet another step in its efforts to improve the lives of children via its Precious Wonders Angel Network, which provides a vessel for the global community to fulfill the Christmas wishes of those in need. The beneficiary for the Precious Wonders Angel Network Christmas Tree is the women and children of Total Blessings Shelter, Inc.
