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.
