Miss World Megan Young on Humanitarian Mission to Tacoloban!
The Philippines very first Miss World winner Megan Young is set to arrive within the hour (ETA 6:54pm, Nov. 23, 2013) at the NAIA airport on a mission to bring aid to victims of Typhoon Yolanda in Tacloban and surrounding areas. Megan has been raising funds in New York and LA since Super-Typhoon Yolanda devastated the eastern block of the Visayas region. She flies in from Jakarta via Hong Kong.
In a phone call with Miss World Philippines Director Cory Quirino, ABQ gleaned that Megan was not scheduled to return to Manila until sometime mid-December for her Christmas break. But with the shocking typhoon that knocked the Philippines down to its knees in early November 2013, the Miss World organization decided to rework her schedule so she could come home and participate in relief efforts.
Cory says, “right after she exits the plane, we will meet the press at the airport. Then Megan will be whisked off to a briefing with the Red Cross so that she can have better understanding of the situation. Our home base will be in Cebu but she will definitely set foot on Tacloban together with a team from Red Cross.”
Knowing Megan Young, it will be a very emotional trip for the actress-turned beauty queen. She is known for wearing her heart on her sleeve and for crying at the drop of a hat. She will definitely need that briefing from Red Cross and maybe even a second briefing after the visit.
According to Cory our Miss World 2013 will leave for Cebu tomorrow, Nov. 28, 2013 for the humanitarian mission and will return to Manila on Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013.
On Sunday, Dec 1, 2013 Megan will be attending the Kuya Germs Walk of Fame event at Eastwood at 5pm.
Then on Monday, Dec 2, 2013 Cory says they will announce Megan’s first major, major product endorsement (in the Philippines) as Miss World 2013. She gave this author no clues but I have a strong feeling it’s a skin or hair product.
Megan Young departs Manila on Dec 3, 2013 for the UK where Miss World Chairwoman Julia Morley is still recuperating from a seriously fractured hip. Cory says that Julia will be unable to return to work for 2 months as her hip heals.
The good news is Megan will be back in Manila on Dec. 15, 2013 (tentatively scheduled) to start her Christmas break. I’m sure she’s dying to spend time with her family and friends over the holiday and fans will get to see her as well on TV and in public events.
Welcome back home Megan!!!
