The People’s Choice Awards announced today that Ellen DeGeneres will receive the fourth annual People’s Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian, presented by Walgreens, during the live awards show from the Microsoft Theater on Wednesday, Jan. 6 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.
“I am so honored to be receiving the People’s Choice Humanitarian Award. I think it sums me up perfectly as I am both a human and an itarian,” stated DeGeneres.
DeGeneres was chosen as this year’s honoree in recognition of her tireless efforts to help communities in need and bring awareness to organizations and charities that are making a difference in people’s lives.
As the recipient of the Favorite Humanitarian Award, DeGeneres has selected St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as the beneficiary of the annual donation presented by Walgreens. Additionally, for every CoverGirl, Pantene, Crest and Oral-B 3DWhite product sold at Walgreens, Walgreens.com, or Duane Reade between Jan. 6 and Jan. 9, Walgreens will make a $1 donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
