LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A local 8-year-old has won beauty pageants all over the county. Fame hasn’t gone to her head, however. She’s now devoted to helping the Valley’s homeless.

Jayliana Glothon loves dancing, her friends and pageants. She told us she sees a lot of homeless people in Las Vegas, and she thought of a way to help.

“All these crowns are so special because I’ve worked so hard for them,” Jayliana said. “This one I got when I was 1 year old. It was the first pageant I won.”

Despite how special they are, Jayliana said she doesn’t need the crowns anymore.

“I get sad sometimes. I was thinking of a new way to share my crowns,” she said.

So, Jayliana is organizing a donation booth. If you drop off a donation, you get a crown. 

“I’ll trade in a crown for a pair of socks so they’re not cold during the winter,” she said.

She’ll take blankets, jackets, anything that will help our homeless population.

“I’m doing this for the homeless because when it comes to winter they’re going to get really cold and I don’t want that to happen,” Jayliana said.

“She has a passion to save the world and help everybody she comes in contact with,” said Jayliana’s mom, Deborah Wetherby.

 The event is set for Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Unleashed Body & Mind Fitness, located at 9272 Tamarus St. in Las Vegas.
