Miss World Australia National Crowning Ceremony
DATE: Friday 31st August 6pm red carpet VIP photo opportunity, 8pm show
Miss World is the largest and longest running international beauty pageant. Launched in 1951, it has become one of the world’s most watched annual events, with a worldwide viewing audience of over 1 billion people. The President of the Miss World Organization, @JuliaMorley, coined the phrase ‘ Beauty with a Purpose’ more than 35 years ago and since then more than $1 billion USD has 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.
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 in the international contest. Without question, it is the enduring popularity of the Miss World pageant that has helped spread the word and encouraged young women to participate in philanthropic work in a bid to make the world a better place.
