LOOK: Miss Universe candidates drop by Jollibee
It's all for an amazing cause!
(SPOT.ph) We're just days away from the highly anticipated Miss Universe pageant! They've been traveling around the country all month, and on January 23, they dropped by Jollibee at Blue Bay Walk in Pasay. (No, it wasn't just for the Chickenjoy, but then again, we wouldn't blame them.)
Twenty-four candidates spent an afternoon eating and hanging out with young girls from the Concordia Children's Services, a safe haven for over 100 orphaned children. Check out some photos from the event:
