On the eve of the 65th Annual Miss Universe Coronation
, let me express our deepest thanks and appreciation to the Miss Universe Organization
for choosing PAFPI as a channel for its philanthropic efforts, through its partner, Pass It Forward
.We especially take utmost pride and joy in our indefatigable and exquisite queen, Miss Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, who, as early as in her winning response during the 2015 Q&A portion, had deemed HIV/AIDS-advocacy a worthy cause. Indeed, the most beautiful woman in the universe not only is blessed with an elegant surface but also, and more importantly, with wisdom and a pure heart.
Moreover, it comes as a much-welcome coincidence that one of our strongest allies and benefactors for the past seven years, M.A.C. Cosmetics Phils.
, has teamed up with MUO
for this year’s pageant. I must confess I had to constantly ask myself why those in the business of beauty gravitate towards HIV-charity.
On behalf of the trustees and the entire PAFPI family, I salute you, partners, and wish you continuing success in all endeavors. Rest assured that your support will go a long and beautiful way in advancing a Philippine society that truly cares for and empowers people living with HIV/AIDS.
