Jennifer Hudson was honoured at the awards for her tireless philanthropic work helping others. The actress and her sister Julia appeared at the People's Choice Awards to collect the second annual favorite humanitarian award. Hudson was presented with the award to honour her work via the Julian D. King Gift Foundation which provides positive experiences for children so that they may in turn become productive and happy adults who'll support their communities.

The foundation was born from a horrific family tragedy that saw Jennifer's nephew and Julia's son, Justin King, shot dead. From a horrendous situation, the pair have helped forge a beacon of hope for Chicago families and future generations. The actress said that the award will bring a welcome spotlight upon the foundation and enable them to continue working hard.

"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," an emotional Hudson said. "This spotlight will provide us with the opportunity to share all the amazing work being done by the Julian D. King Gift Foundation for children in the city of Chicago and around the United States," she added.

The award is accompanied by a $100,000 donation to the Foundation which can be raised by an extra $100,000 by customers who kick on the People's Choice icon on the Walgreen app.
