On May 23 in the Grand Ballroom of the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa, Simon Cowell was honored with a humanitarian award presented by Variety-The Children’s Charity. Since 1938 the organization’s Humanitarian Award has been awarded annually to individuals who show “selfless dedication in the support of humankind.”

The American Idol guru was recognized for using his worldwide fame to help raise hundreds of millions of dollars for charities. Recently Cowell organized a star-studded remake of the 1993 REM hit “Everybody Hurts” which benefited the Disasters Emergency Committee and The Sun’s Helping Haiti campaign.

Additionally Variety-The Children’s Charity credits Cowell for the success of Idol Gives Back, an American Idol fundraising event which has raised over $140 million for charities including Children’s Health Fund, Feeding America, Malaria No More, Save the Children, and the United Nations Foundation.
