The People’s Choice Awards will honor Ellen DeGeneres for her humanitarian efforts, the awards show announced Monday on its website.
The talk show host said in a statement that she’s 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,” she joked.
The honor comes with a $200,000 donation from Walgreens, and DeGeneres has decided that the money will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Walgreens will also donate $1 for every CoverGirl, Pantene, Crest and Oral-B 3DWhite product sold at its stores from Jan. 6 to Jan. 9.
The People’s Choice Awards will air Jan. 6 from 9-11 p.m.
