Unite for Our Posterity
A fundraising campaign for SOS Children's Villages.
About This Campaign
As part of Carmelle’s humanitarian work for Miss Universe Canada 2019, the Unite for Our Posterity campaign was launched to support SOS Children’s Villages. Over the years, roughly 80,000 orphaned and abandoned children have been supported by this international children’s charity. Through fundraising events, online donations, and social media posts, Carmelle hopes to raise more awareness about SOS Children’s Villages to continue to help make a difference in the world, one village at a time.
This year, Miss Universe Canada will be supporting two specific projects for SOS Children's Villages: 1) Digital Community; and 2) support for SOS Education.
