Even before winning Miss Universe, Catriona Gray has been supporting the foundation for kids. And a month before she turns over her crown, she spent it with Young Focus Philippines and Hope for Change in an early Christmas treat at Jollibee Level Up Store in Katipunan, Loyola Heights, Quezon City on November 8.
The kids had a party like no other as they were treated to an afternoon with fun-filled games, delicious food, and dance performances from Jollibee and Friends.
Catriona opened the program with blowing of the cake for November celebrants. The kids brought home with them giveaways and treat on loot bags all happy after the Miss Universe bonded with them.
The queen also had her fair share of surprises when she received thank you notes from the kids and was shown a performance from the talented children of Young Focus.
“After my reign, definitely I’m going to be involved in different community projects in the Philippines and around the world. It’s really the work that I love doing. I want to focus on music. Hopefully, I’d be involved in benefit concerts,” Catriona shared with Philippine Star.
She will be back in the US this week to spend her remaining days as reigning Miss Universe and finally to relinquish her throne to the new queen. 2019 Miss Universe will be staged at the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, on December 8 (Dec. 9, 8 a.m. Manila time).
Young Focus Philippines is a non-government organization that Catriona has supported since 2015. The group gives access to education to the most impoverished children in the Philippines. On the other hand, Hope for Change is also an NGO that focuses on eliminating the effects of hun
ger, illiteracy, and dis ease throughout the poverty-stricken communities in East Africa, the Philippines, and Indo-Asia.
