A queen that works for the benefit of children across the world is truly admirable, an act that is worth emulating. Having said this, current Miss Universe, Leila Lopes, embodies what a true and generous queen she ought to be. On Monday, April 9, together with the Project Sunshine organisation rang the opening bell at the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square, New York.
Project Sunshine is a charitable organisation that works to help children especially the most disadvantage and needy. In its website, it has been a provider of “free educational, recreational, and social programs to children” across the United States and other nations such as Canada, China, Israel, Kenya and Puerto Rico. As its advocacy includes HIV counselling, it is paramount that the group works jointly with the Miss Universe organisation as the latter is also an advocate for HIV/AIDS programs.
The symbolic ringing of the opening bell in Times Square signifies both organisations’ unremitting and continuous support to poor, disadvantage children and their families.
