a week after the Miss universe 2017 grand coronation night in Las Vegas, Nevada, 15 Miss u beauties came to the Philippines and visited Jollibee.
Led by the newly crowned queen, DemiLeigh Nel-Peters of South africa, and Miss universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere of france, the beauty contestants came to spread early Christmas joy with the kids of Kanlungan sa er-Ma Ministry, a nonprofit organization in Malate, Manila, that provides street children with care, protection, rehabilitation, and education through first aid, counseling, health, and recreational activities.
It was not the first time the Miss universe Organization (MuO) worked with a Philippine-based charity group. back in January 2017, when the Miss universe 2016 pageant was held in Manila, the MuO participated— at the Jollibee blue bay Walk—in a precoronation night outreach activity with the Concordia Children’s Services orphanage.
No one was more excited to be back in the Philippines and working with Jollibee than the president of MuO herself, Paula Shugart. In a brief speech before the press, Paula said: “It’s wonderful to be back in the Philippines for the second time this year, and to be welcomed by the familiar hospitality of the filipinos. Our first visit to Jollibee, where we indulged in the locals’ kindness, laughter and the unforgettable Chickenjoy, left us with a very heartwarming experience. So there was no doubt for us to partner with Jollibee again while we’re here to spread more holiday cheer to the children and brighten up their day.”
While enjoying hearty servings of sweet-sauce spaghetti, Rachel, Iris Mittenaere, and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters had a photo op with Jollibee president JJ Alano.
