“The MU pin in particular is super sentimental to me as it secured my sash as I competed in the Preliminary competition of Miss Universe 2018,” Catriona shared. “But I’ve decided to dedicate it to a cause.” 

As of writing, the bids for Catriona’s items are at Php 150,000 for the heels and Php 600,000 for the pin. 

The Shop and Share project is an initiative by Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis which aims to raise money for COVID-19 test kits. Celebrities, musicians, and athletes are asked to donate personal items from designer bags, clothes, jerseys, jewelry, and others to be auctioned off as a fundraiser.
