When she was competing in the 65th Miss Universe pageant in the Philippines, Violina decided to donate her dress to a girl for her prom.

She said in a Facebook post that she wanted the dress to find a new owner - someone who wouldn't be able to buy their own.

The post got more than 17K likes and 13K comments and in the responses Violina received was a message from Issay Gallano.

Issay is a single mother of two, and she was struggling to pay for her 15-year-old daughter's, Zhyra Nicole Cifra, prom dress.

Violina was obviously touched by this message and herself and Issay met up to exchange the beautiful dress, according to Yahoo.

Later Violina posted this video, presumably of Zhyra trying on the dress for the first time.

The most touching moment!❤
