World Vision ‘Celebrities for Children: Race for Hope’

By 8:39 PM

True to its vision of “life in all its fullness” for every Filipino child, World Vision launched ‘Celebrities for Children: Race for Hope’ last April with the objective of acquiring child sponsors with the help of celebrity challengers. Six months after its launch, World Vision culminated the campaign with a thanksgiving event held at Annabel’s Restaurant in Quezon City last October 29, 2013.

TV host Christine Bersola-Babao, entrepreneur Cristalle Belo Henares, movie and TV actress Anne Curtis and beauty queen Miriam Quiambao were the celebrities who responded to the call and accepted the challenge.

The celebrities had to “race” to get the most sign ups through referring their friends and families to be child sponsors. By the end of the campaign in September, the celebrities have collectively referred sponsors for 189 children.
“This event is to recognize our celebrity sponsors for their selfless commitment in our ministry for the children. These four women have reinforced the fact that beauty is reflected in the abundance  and overflow of a person’s heart,” said World Vision Associate Director Jun Godornes.
