Miss World & Beauty With A Purpose


“Over the past year, I have worked to fulfill the philosophy and goals of Miss World. These were primarily to support charitable causes and to represent my beautiful country. Over $10 million was raised to help people afflicted with AIDS, hunger, diseases, and so on. Besides the unforgettable experiences I’ve had in beautiful places around the world and the new contacts with interesting people, meeting and helping people in need have given me the most beautiful feelings of togetherness with people and awareness of my ability to help them. At the same time, I found in the work meaning for my future life. For this I will be grateful to the Miss World pageant for the rest of my life and I wish the new Miss World the same experiences and feelings that I have at this moment.”


During her reign as Miss World, Tatana Kucharova was involved in a number of charity events including:


New York Charity Auction


The stunning white dress worn by Tatana Kucharova when she was crowned Miss World 2006 has raised an astonishing $34,000 at a charity auction in New York.

A group of Wall Street businessmen dished out for the lucky white dress when the great and good of Czech society came together to celebrate the best in fashion coming out of the Czech Republic. The event raised money for the Sunflower Children's Foundation, founded by model Helena Houdova, who said, "It was a great pleasure for us to welcome Tatana. Her contribution to our foundation has enabled us to help many disadvantaged children."


World Chinese Charity Night


Former US President George Bush, Snr proclaimed the beauty of Miss World 2006 Tatana Kucharova when the pair met at a charity function in Beijing, China.


“You are very beautiful”, said President Bush, as he took the hand of Miss World. Tatana was greeted by President Bush and his wife Barbara at the World Chinese Charity Night event at the city’s historic Beijing Hotel on Tiananmen Square.


Variety of Iowa Telethon


During her visit to the American state of Iowa, not even snowstorms prevented Tatana from participating in a the Variety of Iowa Annual Telethon, a Miss World tradition. $3.35 million was raised for charitable causes and Miss World personally presented a wheelchair to a small boy who could thus begin to attend school.
