The rights to photograph Miss Universe 2007, Riyo Mori, 23, will be auctioned off on Yahoo! Japan to raise money for charity. Mori is a goodwill ambassador for the charity “BEYOND THE BORDER PROJECT” for Doctors Without Borders.
Bids for the auction close at 10 a.m. on May 30.
Mori said: “I am honored to be able to participate in this action. I am moved by the words 'Lives cannot be saved with only medical care,' and it made me realize that the feeling to want to help can save people. I would like as many people as possible to realize that.”
Details of the photo shoot will be decided on by Mori and the successful bidder. Asked what she would do if the bidder requests a swimsuit shot, Mori said with a smile, "I'll think about it at the time."© Japan Today
