Mom of two Chrissy Teigen is not shy about using her celebrity status to voice her opinions, so it should come as no surprise that she is being honored with the Baby2Baby Giving Tree Award.
The award, which will be presented to Teigen at the Baby2Baby Gala in November, is in honor of the outspoken celeb mom using her platform to advocate for children, according to PEOPLE.
“We are so proud to announce Chrissy Teigen as our 2019 honoree for her commitment to children in need,” Baby2Baby co-presidents Kelly Sawyer Patricof and Norah Weinstein said in a statement. “Not only does she use her platform to shine a light on children living in poverty, but she walks the walk and has given back to Baby2Baby in every conceivable way, from providing financial support to donating her own children’s items to the kids in our program. We’re honored to present her with the Giving Tree Award this November.”
Past recipients of the award have included several other celeb moms including Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Kerry Washington, Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson.
“I’m incredibly honored to receive the Baby2Baby Giving Tree Award, particularly because the organization is so close to my heart,” Teigen said in a statement. “Baby2Baby has given me an opportunity to teach my children the importance of giving back to families struggling with providing their children with the most basic necessities.”
