Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray is auctioning her Miss Universe pin to raise funds for Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis’ Shop and Share 2020 fundraiser for test-kits.
The 4th Filipina Miss Universe posted on her Facebook account on June 7, 2020, that she is auctioning some of her pre-loved items to aid the country’s COVID-19 testing capacity.
“The MU pin, in particular, is super sentimental to me as it secured my sash as I competed in the Preliminary competition of Miss Universe 2018. But I’ve decided to dedicate it to a cause,” Gray said in her social media post.
Catriona Gray wore the pin on her sash as she debuted her now-iconic “Lava Walk” and “slow-mo turn” and while wearing her Mayon Volcano-inspired red gown on the Miss Universe stage in December 2018 in Thailand.
“A personal, handwritten note on the Official Miss Universe 2018 Comp-Card will also accompany the pin,” according to the Shop and Share website found in this link.
Catriona Gray has put up 2 of her items for the Shop and Share auction:
- Miss Universe Pin – used in Preliminary Competition of Miss Universe 2018. The pin has hit Php250,000 as of June 10 with one day to go before bidding ends.
- Karen Millen Embellished Heels – the shoes’ current bid is at Php30,000.
Catriona Gray is auctioning her items on Shop and Share store, an online platform that allows well-known people to donate personal items for a cause, launched by humanitarian aid workers and Filipino actresses Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis.
