The Miss World Organization lives up to its name of Beauty with a Purpose as it directs all fundraising efforts into supporting my countrymen who were greatly affected by the Super Typhoon Yolanda. Of course, Miss World 2013 Megan Young was at the forefront of all these fundraising efforts. Megan is using her title to raise awareness to the needs of millions who got affected and bring in the much needed help to restore the lives of these survivors. Here is what she has to say:
I am devastated by the images I have seen of my homeland over the last week. My fellow Filipinos are so wonderful and strong but they desperately need help to get through this disaster. The amount of support we have had so far has been incredible but we need a lot more. I hope that I can help out as much as I can through my role as Miss World and through Beauty With A Purpose where 100% of the money raised goes straight to those who need it. I am praying for my country and my people.
Beautiful readers, please join me in thanking Megan to all her hard work and to everyone in MWO – especially to Julia Morley – for the help 🙂
With the help of The Sun, Megan already raised almost a million dollars in UK and over $26,000 so far in USA. Megan is scheduled to visit Leyte and Palawan in the Philippines later this week to personally deliver the funds that she helped raise.
