On Sunday May 6th, 2012 I was humbled and honored to receive the 2012 International Humanitarian Award from Variety International, the Children’s Charity. Receiving this award has lifted our charity work to new heights. We are now recognized alongside great humanitarians who have earned the award in the past, including Sir Winston Churchill, Dr Henry Kissinger, Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn, Sammy Davis Jr, Sir Roger Moore and Simon Cowell.
The speech that I gave received standing ovations as everyone in the room responded to the teachings of love. Many said it was one of the most powerful speeches that they have heard in 30 years in Variety and called it “a world call to charity.”
If you are moved and inspired by the acceptance speech, as most of the 500 people at the event were, I encourage you to pass along the link to your friends and family. So many people might benefit from the truth and love that resonates throughout the speech.
Thank you all for your tireless support, and for celebrating this great moment with me.
