Just days after a video of her surprising her assistant with a brand new house for Christmas went viral, Jennifer Hudson is yet again making news for her altruism. Hudson will receive the People’s Choice Award for Humanitarian of the Year.
Hudson was selected in recognition for her work with the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, an organization she formed with her sister in 2009 in honor of her nephew Julian King.
“Thank you for honoring me with the Favorite Humanitarian Award. My sister Julia and I were raised with the belief that helping others was always very important. I am so grateful that the People’s Choice Awards and Walgreens have come together in the same spirit” Hudson said.
The foundation works to provide stability and positive experiences for children of all backgrounds so that they may grow to become productive, confident and happy adults, able to be positive influences on their communities.
Walgreens, the official sponsor of the People’s Choice Awards, will donate $100,000 to the Julian D. King Gift Foundation in honor of the award.
Congratulations to Jennifer Hudson for her outstanding work!
