Miss World Organization: Beauty With A Purpose

29 Mar

Miss World Organization: Beauty With A Purpose
Miss World 2010 Coronation Night

The President of the Miss World Organization, Julia Morley, coined the phrase ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ more than 35 years ago and since then more than $400 million USD have been raised in its name in support of children’s charities across the globe, bringing help and hope to hundreds of thousands in need.

Among the many recipients of this outstanding fund-generating activity has been the Nelson Mandela Trust, Canada’s Cops For Cancer, Variety Clubs International, Operation Hunger, and the SOS Children’s Villages which cares for orphaned and abandoned children in 132 countries.

Today, Beauty with a Purpose is also the name of a special annual award programme that singles out and recognises the Miss World contestant who is shown, through charitable works, to have made a real difference to people in need in her homeland.

Charity work is integral to the Miss World ethos and part of the brief to contenders in each country is that they volunteer their time or fundraise for charity.

All of the money raised goes to the nominated cause and the entrants’ records are credited with details of their personal contribution. Their hard work, dedication and above all, results, are what puts them in the running for the Beauty with a Purpose award. Beauty with a Purpose is staged as part of the festivities just prior to the pageant itself and since 2005 the winner has automatically been awarded a place in the Miss World semi finals.

Miss World Alexandria Mills was joined by Mr World Kamal Ibrahim and Miss World Africa Emma Wareus a fundraising weekend.

Without question, it is the enduring popularity of the Miss World pageant that has helped spread the word and encouraged young women to get involved as part of their bid for the title in activities that really can only make the world a better place.

Miss World launches Beauty with a Purpose in Korea

Miss World and Mr World finalists in Seoul

Miss World Alexandria Mills was in Seoul to launch a new Beauty with a Purpose initiative in Korea. Joining Alexandria and Miss World Chairman Julia Morley were Miss World Africa Emma Wareus, Miss World 2nd Runner-Up Adriana Vasini of Venezuela, Mr World Kamal Ibrahim and Mr World 1st Runner-Up Josef Karas from Czech Republic.

Their Korean experience began with a visit to the Hyundai Department Store with the launch of a new drive on behalf of the Children’s Aid Foundation, with donations accepted from customers and special events due to take place to raise funds for underprivileged children.

A trip to Seoul National University Children’s Hospital was a moving experience for all the Miss World and Mr World representatives, when they spent time with children suffering from cancer, and met their families.

The visit culminated with a huge press conference and dinner in the Grand Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Seoul, with over 500 attendees. In speeches to the press, they spoke about the importance of Beauty with a Purpose, with Alexandria commenting on how it was the best part of her role as Miss World.

Adriana Vasini, who has graduated from medical school, said “Before coming to Miss World, my work with Beauty with a Purpose was about making lives better, and now, as a doctor, my professional life is about making lives better too. I love working with children, as every day I can take their smiles home with me. Now, coming to Korea, I can take home the smiles of the children from another country as well.”

The Miss World and Mr World representatives will now travel to Australia to attend the world renowned L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
