Miss Universe donates gifts for poor to Caritas Manila

(UCAN) Reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach has donated some personal items to Caritas Manila to contribute to the Catholic Church’s program for the poor this Christmas.

“We are all doing this out of pure love and good faith,” said the 2015 international beauty queen after meeting Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila on Dec. 12.

“The country is going to the right direction, and of course the Miss Universe competition is [in the Philippines next year] so we feel like we want to give back as much as we can,” she said.

Wurtzbach called on others to also “share their blessings” especially during the Christmas season.

“Let’s share with one another. Let us give without expecting anything in return,” said Wurtzbach, who expressed her intention to work with Caritas Manila after her reign as Miss Universe.

Cardinal Tagle thanked the beauty queen for her donation. [More]
