YOUTHFUL contestant Tsebo Moloi, a finalist in the 2016 Miss Heritage Commonwealth South Africa International competition, sees funding as key in realising her dream to be crowned the winner. She needs funding to cover her expenses and also has to raise funds for a charity programme together with other finalists vying for the crown. These funds will be utilised to cover the costs of administration, accommodation, production and workshops, as well as to assist Miss Teen Commonwealth South Africa 2016 during her reign. Moloi’s success in raising funds for the charity programme will be used as one of the determining factors in the crowning of Miss Heritage Commonwealth South Africa 2016 during September or December this year in Bloemfontein. Moloi is the only Free State contestant in the pageant among the top-15 finalists. As a finalist of Miss Heritage Commonwealth South Africa International, she has to raise a sponsorship of R5 000. The entity that will sponsor Moloi qualifies as a silver sponsor and the contestant becomes the brand ambassador of the sponsoring company during her reign if crowned the winner.Other benefits are as follows: The entity’s logo will be advertised on all social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn of the South Africa Commonwealth pageants; the logo and contact details will feature in the printed programme at the grand finale and the company’s logo will be on display before the crowning event as part of the audio-visual display. In line with the charity programme, Moloi has chosen to help facilitate social and upliftment programmes supported by the Chief Leeuw Foundation. Programmes support children suffering from leukemia. The pageant was founded on the basis of incorporating all nations and having young, unmarried, beautiful women from the ages of 17 to 28 from different backgrounds be involved in the process of initiating positive sustainable development in the world through the use of beauty pageantry to promote world heritage and tourism. The pageant aims at empowering women of all ages by giving them a platform to bring sustainable change and to become charity and cultural ambassadors within South Africa and the international community.
