, who played Moz in The Tribe 3, has been helping out with some New Zealand charities…
Currently she is taking part in the Queenstown Challenge for the Cure Kids charity. The challenge will see her making her way from Queenstown to Auckland with her pal Jo Holley and only $10NZ dollars between the two! You can sponsor the pair and help them raise money for the Cure Kids charity by clicking here.
Miriama said the following to Scene Queenstown about the $10 challenge: “We’re pretty much living and breathing it for this past month – then there’s the blood, sweat and tears of getting up the country in three days.
“But I’m pretty sure what we’ll have been through is nothing compared to what those [critically ill] kids are going through.”
Meanwhile, back in July 26th, for NZ charity KidsCan, (Miriama is an ambassador for the charity, since it began in 2005), Miriama and her pal Jo Holley joined other celebs in packing food boxes for poor children in New Zealand. In an article from The New Zealand Herald Miriama said the following: “We all think New Zealand is this idyllic little place that doesn’t have this [starving children], but we need to be reminded that it exists… We also need to be reminded that we can help.”
Miriama Smith and several other well known New Zealand celebs (who I don’t know as I’m not from NZ) have banded together to record a song for the charity event The Big Night In to be held on the 8th and 9th August 2009. Check the video out for ‘Thank You For The Love’ below, it’s sort of a behind-the-scenes/recording the song music video. (The video starts 10 seconds in!)
Okay, you’re probably bored of the blog by now, but who cares! I’m bored in my office, so I’m searching the web… And I found pics of the girls on the catwalk!
Beth Allen is wearing a design by Hailwood, the girl always looks fantastic in those sequinned numbers. Meanwhile Antonia Prebble was sporting a design by WORLD. Get it, she’s sporting it? Because it’s sports wear… Oh never mind. Antonia was accessorised with a stunning Swarovski crystal-encrusted soccer ball also by WORLD, or maybe the ball was accessorised by the Prebble? Either way it’s a shame the photo is poor quality.
Yeah the photos are crappy in quality, you may find better ones given time, but this is it, I don’t think I’ll be posting anything more to do with the adiCouture ’08 KidsCan fashion show.
Case closed. Images thanks to Fashion NZ.
Edit: I’ve just updated the page and added the images released by KidsCan.
Found a pic of Beth at the charity fashion show.
Still not found any photos of Antonia Prebble.
If you keep an eye out on their site you may find some soon.
I’m not sure who Beth is pictured with, she kinda looks like Martine McCutcheon! Though I’m sure it ain’t.
The picture features in a gallery which accompanied a David Beckham centric article.
The article is here, the gallery is here.
The article is funny, fifth paragraph down, when it talks about the fans who hit on David.
