TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - World Vision's Talent Relations office
is pleased to announce a multiple collaboration with four celebrity
ambassadors: World Pop Illustrator & Artist Gary Taxali, Miss. World
Canada Tara Teng, Teen-Pop sensation Tyler Medeiros & one of Canada's
most popular VJ's Much Music's Sarah Taylor. The foursome is embarking
on an international journey to help launch the "#Say I Love You" Tour.
A 10-day trip to highlight child well-being in two of the globe's most
impoverished regions, Sri Lanka and the Philippines. "I'm still young
but through my music I want to educate my fans to care about all kids
in the world," says Medeiros.
"It is my hope that lives will change as a result of this trip - for us,
our followers and most importantly - for the precious children who we
are about to meet," Teng adds.
Medeiros, along with Taxali, Teng and Taylor will be visiting projects
later this month in Sri Lanka and the Philippines where World Vision
has been working for decades in child sponsor projects.
"I have the opportunity to give back through my work, says Taxali. "Our
celebrity ambassadors have a unique opportunity to experience our work
and then share it with their audiences in so many creative ways through
art, music, video and on stage," says Talent Relations Manager for
World Vision, Alicia Pereira.
World Vision becomes the newest NGO to partner with each of these
celebrities on the heels of a busy year full of record deals, crowning
titles and for Taxali a new Royal Canadian Mint collection design.
