World Vision ‘Celebrities for Children: Race for Hope’ culminates the campaign with a thanksgiving event at the Annabel’s Restaurant in Quezon City about two weeks ago.

Just to give you an idea of what the campaign was, the celebrities had to “race” to get the most sign ups through referring their friends and families to be child sponsors. The campaign successfully ended in September and the celebrities have collectively referred sponsors for 189 children.

Celebrities who responded to the call and accepted the challenge includes TV host Christine Bersola-Babao, entrepreneur Cristalle Belo Henares, movie and TV actress Anne Curtis and beauty queen Miriam Quiambao. Only Cristelle Belo and Miriam Quiambao made it to the culminating event though.

Miriam Quiambao has been a long-time ambassador for World Vision. She started sponsoring a child after winning first runner up in the 1999 Miss Universe beauty pageant. Now, she is a proud sponsor of 10 children, three of whom have already graduated.

It was nice talking to her casually, she's humble and simple. Cristalle joined us in our table while having lunch before the event started. She shared her dream to help send kids to school. Her campaign slogan had been “300 at 30”, signifying her mission to find sponsors for 300 kids for her 30th year. She said she will continue getting sponsors for children even after the campaign is over.

The celebrities were given a plaque of appreciation for helping, accepting the challenge to acquire child sponsors.
