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.

The Miss Uni­verse 2017 can­di­dates, each one hold­ing a piece of Chick­en­joy, posed with the gi­ant bucket of Jollibee’s world­fa­mous fried chicken to honor and for­mal­ize the good part­ner­ship be­tween the New York-based Miss Uni­verse Or­ga­ni­za­tion and the...

Reign­ing Binib­in­ing Pilip­inas-Uni­verse Rachel Peters, who rep­re­sented the coun­try at the Miss Uni­verse 2017 beauty pageant, hap­pily wel­comed her fel­low can­di­dates and the press to Jollibee. Rachel, also a fan of the pop­u­lar Pi­noy fast-food chain,...

The 15 beauty queens shared meals, sto­ries, and laugh­ter with the chil­dren of Kan­lun­gan sa Er-Ma Min­istry. They also had the chance to play with the kids, who were able to have fun de­spite the lan­guage bar­rier. Hug­gable Jollibee pil­lows were also given...
