This is so great — and well-deserved!

Ellen DeGeneres has been chosen to receive the fourth annual People's Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian, the organization announced on Monday morning!

The comedienne and TV talk show host will officially be given the award, presented by Walgreens, on Wednesday, January 6 during the televised ceremony.

But just like the funny woman Ellen is, she couldn't resist a little humor when she heard the news; she wrote (below):

"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."


DeGeneres was chosen this year for her non-stop work helping people and communities in need around the country, and — in another benefit of winning the award — she's selected St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as the beneficiary for a donation that will be made by Walgreens in her honor.

Even better than that, you can help St. Jude's, too!

Part of the Humanitarian Award includes a community component, and for every CoverGirl, Pantene, Crest and Oral-B 3D White product sold at Walgreens, Walgreens.com, or Duane Reade between January 6 and January 9, the pharmacy will make a $1 donation to St. Jude's.
