Shakira Honored By The UN!

| Filed under: InspirationShakira



Shakira was presented with a medal by the United Nations commemorating her charity work for children at a special ceremony in GEneva!

The Colombian pop star founded the Barefoot Foundation which provides nutrition and education for as many as 6,000 children in Colombia, she's a foundign member of the ALAS Foundation which promotes public policies for children in Latin American and the Caribbean as well as being a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

Shaki says:

"It's not too late to keep our promise to our children, but we must act now. Together, we can make education and decent work for all a reality.

"[Witnessing sub par conditions] shaped my dream and my vision of social justice: to see a world where every child can live a dignified life with the opportunity to reap the benefits of a good education and a chance to pursue their dreams."

What a wonderful cause — she truly deserves the recognition.

Felicidades, Shaki and keep up the good work!

    ewww….next they will be giving awards to Britney Spears. This makes me angry because there are so many people that train and get degrees in order to work for the UN and spend many years doing so yet Shakira can be a pathetic singer and parade her body around and get all these serious awards.

    anytime Hollyweird and politics mesh you know something is not right, just look at the last time this happened? they made a Karl Marx reincarnate with a terrorist name into a celebrity and got him elected as 44th U.S. president.In my opinion this latest UN stunt is just to get us acclimated to the concept of world government.

    Wow you suck, you should be proud that you have somebody who takes their time off from singing to focus on the BareFoot Foundation and donate money from her own pocket to build 3 schools in Colombia you ungrateful person. She donated 47 million how many wealthy people who are celebrities do that.
