'I have something in common with those kids' Miss Amazing helps bring joy back to house

Three Miss Amazing national queens, and Idahoans, are helping bring joy and laughter back to the Ronald McDonald House in Boise, after a broken pipe destroyed the home's play room. 

We all have that favorite book. The one that taught us something, or made us feel good inside. A book can even transport you to a world you could only dream of, or maybe help get your thoughts off the tough times.

Right now, at the Ronald McDonald House in Boise, there are very few books to help those struggling with medical conditions.

That's because a broken pipe left the play area at the house with very little left to play with.

But a group of young ladies is trying to bring laughter and joy back to the basement. The three National Miss Amazing queens are determined to give the families a space to let loose in again.

"To me, I something in common with those kids because I've been in the hospital too, and I'm pretty sure the kids are really bored without that play area," said Abigail Manery, the National Miss Amazing Teen Queen.

The play area is already looking better. Fresh paint covers the walls; a new floor will be installed soon. And as the Ronald McDonald House makes the repairs, the Miss Amazing queens are hard at work bringing in donations. They've already dropped off the first batch of new books and toys for the house.

A good book can make you feel good inside, or inspire you to do great things.

This group of amazing girls, can do just about the same thing.

"the motto (of Miss Amazing) is girls and women with disabilities can make a difference in the world, so I feel that doing this book and toy drive, I've made a difference," Manery said.

"It feels good to help my community," said Jaymee Peterson, The Idaho Miss Amazing Teen Queen.


If you would like to help, the queens ask you donate new books and toys to the following address by the end of October:
