Ramona Amiri, the Assyrian Beauty, asks for your support

My name is Ramona Rina Amiri, and I was recently crowned Miss World Canada 2005. I am proud and honored to be representing Canada at the Miss World pageant in China. A record 125 countries will be participating in this event. As you all know Natalie Glebova, a Canadian, won the Miss Universe crown just recently in Thailand, and I am dedicated to bring home our first Miss World crown! But I won't be able to do it without your help!

I am currently looking for sponsors to help in my preparations for China. The funds raised will be used for such things as training, proper presentation, wardrobe and accessories. Delegates from around the world will arrive in Sanya, China on November 9th and will be there an entire month until the final show, which airs live on December 10th, 2005. The Miss World pageant is the second most watched television program with 2.2 billion viewers worldwide (next to the world cup of soccer) You could definitely benefit from this opportunity by receiving national and international exposure. For example, you could have a 2"X 3" company logo on the official Miss World Canada website with a link to a site of your choice. The Miss World Canada site gets 1, 000, 000 monthly hits! This figure dramatically increases as the Miss World pageant approaches. In addition to this, you will be acknowledgment in the nationally-distributed 2006 Miss World Canada program book. If you are a top sponsor you will receive two appearances by me. This is incredible exposure for your company! Some of our current sponsors include Elizabeth Arden and the Holiday Inn to name a few. Please see the attached document as it includes a biography along with pictures of the Miss World Canada 2005 pageant. You will also find information about the Miss World Canada organization, about Miss World and of course the Sponsor Packages.

There's more! You will be doing a good deed! The Miss World motto "Beauty with a purpose" means raising money for children's charities. Our charity of choice in Canada is the Canadian Cancer Society. 20% of your sponsorship money will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society which goes towards childhood cancer research and assistance to cancer patients by providing networking and other supports such as Camp Goodtimes. And this money will also come back to you in the form of a tax receipt. You will be able to deduct this amount from your taxes and at the same time help those affected by cancer. It's a win-win situation! You might be aware that cancer currently touches 1 in every 3 people and if you take a minute to digest this figure, really we are all affected by cancer as we all know someone close to our heart that is fighting it.

We have already captured the universe now let's conquer the WORLD!

Sincerely,

Ramona Rina Amiri
Miss World Canada 2005

Biography:

Born in Montreal, Quebec on April 16th, 1980, Ramona Rina Amiri grew up with her sister, Rebecca Venus, in the West Island.
