All for a cause! When fashion and charities collide. Huge amount of the proceeds go to @cordaid for relief operations and local entrepreneurship support. I personally cannot wait for CordAids' plans for the Philippines. A photo posted by Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach (@missuniverse) on May 3, 2016 at 7:27pm PDT
