Miranda Kerr Shines as Ambassador for Kids Help Line[PHOTOS]
Australian model for Victoria’s Secret Miranda Kerr has been named as the new Ambassador for Kids Help Line, a telephone and online service center serving as the ears for thousands of youth in need of help as they face various difficulties in life.
Noting the impact her name could make as a renowned international model who hailed Down Under, the stunning Miranda showed her generosity and graciousness by agreeing to represent the counseling center.
"I want every child in Australia to know that there is someone who will listen to them, someone who can talk to them, no matter how big or small the issue," Miranda Kerr was quoted as saying by the news.com.au.
Kerr pointed that there is no need for any young ones that there is no shame in asking for help, whatever the case may be.
According to the Australian Associated Press noted news.com.au, Kerr said, "We all have challenging days, we all go through moments in our lives where we do need advice."
The 29-year-old Victoria’s Secret model and the face for KORA Organics emphasized that the “younger generations (should be) encouraged to believe in themselves.”
Officials for the Kids Help Line said that Miranda is the best choice to represent the organization, noting that “having Australia’s favorite model as ambassador could help promote and engage the young people aged between five and twenty-five (25), added news.com.au.
"They used to talk to us about family problems," Ms Protheroe said, adding “Now it's moved to mental health and relationship problems, as well as child abuse and suicide."
Kids Help Line is a private and confidential, telephone and online counseling service created to promote awareness and provide services for Australian children between 5 and 25 years old. Volunteers involved in the project are reportedly receiving 6,000 calls a week. Issues including relationship breakdown, bullying, sexual abuse, homelessness, suicidal thoughts and drug and alcohol use are among the issues discussed during these private conversations. Anyone in need can call Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800 or online at www.kidshelp.com.au.
A program was held at the Luna Park in Sydney, Tuesday, February 12, where a group of children were seen posing with Miranda Kerr endorsing the advocacy.
