It Takes a World to Build a Village - MUC 2019

About This Campaign

As a Miss Universe Canada 2019 National Finalist and SOS Ambassador committed to helping improve the lives of children in the developing (and developed) world, I kindly ask you to join me in supporting my humanitarian platform which will focus this year on SOS Children’s Villages!

ABOUT SOS

SOS Children’s Villages is the world’s largest charity for orphaned and abandoned children. They provide loving homes by providing a family environment for children who have no one. These children are nurtured by an SOS Mother who is from the local community and professionally trained to form family ties with each child. Through education, medical, family strengthening and outreach programs, SOS Children’s Villages impacts the lives of over 1 million people each year. With your help, I hope to positively reach even more children and families in the years to come.

At the moment, an estimated 263 million children are out of school globally. We can change that. Through education and lifelong learning, the cycle of exclusion, poverty, domestic violence and family breakdown can be stopped. For children who do have access to education, it can mean the difference between a lifetime of struggle and success.

ABOUT THIS CAMPAIGN

‘It Takes a World to Build a Village’ Campaign seeks to raise awareness and funds through online crowdfunding, community events and the mobilization of our young changemakers. Through the power of social media, I am inviting my friends from all countries to support this campaign and help raise funds** for 2 educational projects:
1) A school supply program aimed to equip young learners with the educational tools needed for their academic success.
2) A digital communities program geared to ensure youth access to Internet and Information communication technologies that promote self-sufficiency.

We cannot be changing the world if the whole world is not participating in the action.
So please join me in making a difference in these children’s lives by sharing this link and donating. No child should be left behind. Anything helps! Thank you so much and welcome to the SOS family!

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” -Mother Theresa
