Dear Pageant Girl,
I LOVE a beauty queen that stands for something. Even more so a beauty that recognises and protects the beauty of nature’s creations, especially the four legged kind.
So when I found out that one of our Stunners, Madeline Elizabeth Taylor is an RSPCA QLD supporter and ambassador who has decided to use her own long legs to benefit this cause, my heart melted.
Well done Madelinec- you truly are beautiful both inside and out. And to help you out, Dear Pageant Girl would like to give you and your cause a shout out.
If you are in the area, please support the Million Paws Walk on the 20th of May. Details below.
Ooooh girl, do yo thang.
Gold Coast Miss Universe finalist – Dedicated RSPCA volunteer
The RSPCA, Australia’s premier animal welfare organisation, is gearing up for its annual Million Paws Walk to be held across the nation on Sunday 20 May 2012.
This year, Miss Universe finalist and dedicated RSPCA volunteer, Madeline Taylor, is helping promote the event and the importance of animal welfare education in the community.
Between completing a law degree at Bond University and volunteering as a Humane Education representative for the RSPCA, Madeline has entered the Miss Universe contest with the aim of encouraging other young women to stand up for what they believe in and get involved with philanthropic work. She will attend the state finals on Tuesday 1st March.
“My goals are to develop self-belief, be a positive role model to young Australian women and to encourage people to support a cause they are passionate about,” said Miss Taylor. “Philanthropic work provides so many rewarding and fun experiences that I believe everyone would enjoy and benefit from. I would also love to meet and learn from influential people who I would not otherwise meet without the Miss Universe Australia Organisation.”
On Sunday 20 May, Madeline will also be volunteering at the RSPCA Million Paws Walk at Doug Jennings Park in Main Beach and is encouraging all Gold Coast residents to get involved to help support her favourite charity.
“Everyone from all walks of life should be involved in the RSPCA Million Paws Walk,” said Madeline. “It is a wonderful event full of fun activities and community spirit, which help to support the RSPCA and their invaluable cause of protecting animals and providing awareness for their welfare.”
The Walk is open to all ages and all dogs. Actually, you don’t even need a dog, just come along and join in the fun. There will be entertainment, demonstrations, food vendors, face painting, and heaps and heaps of happy smiling dogs. Volunteer positions still available!
You can pre-register online at www.millionpawswalk.com.au or on-site on the day.
