MORE THAN BEAUTY

The Miss Earth USA organization is more than a beauty pageant. We are Beauties for a Cause.  

 

Miss Earth USA delegates commit themselves year-round to bring awareness to and make an impact on environmental causes. Projects include tree plantings, children's education, clean ups, water distribution and climate leadership training.

 

Charitable Gifts

 

The Miss Earth USA organization funds major projects via the tax exempt 501(c)3 entity B4ACUSA. Recent projects have included Puerto Rico hurricane relief, assistance for wildfire restoration in Australia and California, tree plantings in the Philippines, clean ups in Nevada and Florida, as well as events in every area of the United States. Your gift enables our organization to send titleholders into the community to use their platform to impact our planet.
