Help a New Jersey Mom Become an ‘Inked’ Magazine Cover Girl
A New Jersey mom of three could soon find herself on the cover of 'Inked' magazine. You can help make it happen!
There's a real possibility that Shaylynn Jones, of Point Pleasant Borough in Ocean County, could grace the cover of 'Inked', which caters to tattoo artists and enthusiasts.
The magazine is current running a photo contest that would put it's overall vote getter on the cover, according to Patch.com.
And voting is reportedly totally up to readers and fans. So far, Shaylynn has gotten through a few rounds of initial voting, and has earned a place in 'Inked's quarterfinals.
I MADE IT TO QUATER FINALS!!!! Voting is now open!!! VOTE VOTE VOTE AND SHARE SHARE SHARE!!
I cannot believe this!...
Shaylynn, who's spent the last couple years getting healthy, giving up cigarettes and losing more than 80 lbs., tells Patch.com, "I almost feel like I'm a contestant on American Idol or something with the outpouring support."
She hopes to inspire others on a similar journey, and to be role model. "I would love nothing more to show everyone you don't need to have a million followers or be a size zero to achieve your dreams.", says Shaylynn. "I've come so far in my journey and I just want people to look at me and say, 'Wow she did it. I can too,' ".
But because votes are now reset for this next round there's more at stake, and the possibility of earning the coveted cover-spot gets more competitive. The more votes and shares she gets on social media, the better her chances of winning not only her face on 'Inked' but the $25,000 Grand Prize.
Knowing Shaylynn was more than 200 lbs. after having her third child, and built up enough body confidence to enter this competition, she's already a star in my eyes.
If you want to help Shaylynn achieve her dream, you can vote once a day for free and votes can also be purchased with proceeds benefitting MusiCares foundation, which Jones tells Patch.com provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need.
Good luck, Shaylynn! We'll be rooting for you!
