Forty stunning beauties from all over the country have been selected to compete at the Binibining Pilipinas 2020 edition for the national titles and an opportunity to represent the Phillippines at international stage. The competition was initially postponed to 31st May 2020 but it seems like the situation is still not ideal to host a competition. So recently, the BPCI announced that the 57th edition of BinibiningPilipinas will only be held after the situation in the country minimalizes.

Binibining Pilipinas International 2019 Bea Patricia Magtanong, BinibiningPilipinas Supranational 2019 Resham Ramirez Saeed, Binibining Pilipinas Grand International 2019 Maria Andrea Abesamis (assumed the position of Samantha Ashley Lo), Binibining Intercontinental 2019 Emma Tiglao, and Miss Globe 2019 2nd Runner-up Leren Bautista will crown their respective successors at the end of the event finale.

Since the announcement of the pageant being postponed indefinitely came out the people of Philippines as well as the BPCI has advised the delegates of the competition to use this time to carry out their advocacies to the fullest. One of the social media user and pageant fanatic mentioned, “This is the time that we want you girls to spend your time working for your advocacies, not competing for a crown. I’d love to see a world where women are queens on their own, giving voice to the voiceless and calling attention to societal issues that we have to address.”

Samantha Bernardo, a pageant frontrunner hoping to win the BinibiningPilipinas International 2020 title, was initially saddened by the deferred coronation night but added that it is an “opportunity” for her to better herself as a recently-licensed life insurance agent. She stated, “I am focusing on myself now. Life must go on. It’s an opportunity for me to grow in this industry (life insurance). If I depend on Binibini and modelling, walangmangyayarisa ‘kin!”

The diva also shared that her team and she herself are working on her advocacy which is campaigning for anti-malaria awareness and funding of it amidst the pandemic scare. Just like Samantha other gorgeous divas are also carrying out their advocacies amidst the pandemic. The Binibining Pilipinas Organization as a team is also carrying out various funding and non-funding campaigns to help the ones in need. The organization donates all its earnings to various orphanages and day-carecentres in Metro Manila, among others. It also contributes to giving aid in relief operations in times of natural calamities, as well as undertake child welfare programs and help build houses for the impoverished.

The organization hosts beauty pageants as a fund-raising activity which is meant to benefit projects and causes for indigent and less fortunate Filipinos. The diva who represent their respective provinces at the competition are given the opportunity to be carriers of BPCI’s humanitarian mission to spread “peace and love across the nation” as one of its primary goals.

Its role in the upliftment of less fortunate fellow Filipinos through economic support generated from corporate sponsorships and other benefactors and donors is the basic reason for BPCI’s existence and relevance as an institution,” it said on its website.

It is very inspiring to look up to people who are staying positive and motivated throughout the coronavirus scare across the globe. The delegates are using their social media accounts to stay in touch with everyone and carry out their advocacies and after the news of postponing the pageant was announced, the delegates have become more firm and determined to work on themselves as well as help others in the need and carry out their advocacies like a queen they all ought to be.
