The founder of the “Have A Heart Foundation” said, "In a visit to the home I realized it's not just about giving the children clothes and food, I wanted to see what they need. While we know that the government does a lot, they can't do everything, and so we are doing our part to help the wonderful occupants and staff of the Rainbow Children's home...The money will go towards the purchase of a brand new stove. It is badly needed and it will be purchased locally so that they can have a warranty."

Damion Grange, Chairman of the Miss World BVI Committee explained the decision and pointed out that the noble nature of the Foundation appealed not only to the Miss World BVI organization, but it’s philanthropic partner CIL as well: "The DNA of our organization is Philanthropy, and so when we heard about the initiative, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. We particularly liked the fact that the impact is immediate, as the contribution goes to addressing the current needs of the Rainbow Children's Home.
