  • Demi-Leigh shared a glimpse of her most recent visit to South Africa.
  • The former Miss South Africa said her family were "the best part of visiting and the saddest part of leaving".
  • Also, during her trip to SA, Tebow launched Purposeful People, an initiative that supports small businesses.

Demi-Leigh Tebow is reflecting on her recent trip home to South Africa.

The former Miss South Africa – who now lives in Florida with her husband, Tim – shared a carousel of photos capturing time spent with her family when she visited in August.

"I have so many pictures to share from my trip home, but I'll start with my family…" she wrote in the caption.

"The best part of visiting and the saddest part of leaving."


During her visit, Tebow didn't only spend time with her loved ones but handled business as well.

In previous social media posts, the former Miss Universe highlighted a partnership between Purposeful People and Ithemba Creations, "a US-based brand that offers ethically-sourced and produced goods, handcrafted by artisans from all over Southern Africa."

Tebow spent time with the artists who create their pieces in the country before it is shipped off to the US.

Purposeful People is an extension of Tebow's brand that champions a different brand or business every month. 

"I hope that by putting a spotlight on Purposeful People and brands, I can encourage more buyers to shop more consciously while also inspiring people and brands to choose to love and put people first, too," Tebow explained in a social media post about the initiative.
