Eco-conscious mom of four Holly Robinson Peete sure keeps herself busy! Whether she’s co-hosting an Oprah radio talk show, authoring the child’s book My Brother Charlie or performing on television, Robinson-Peete always remains focused on giving back.

The well-known actress recently became this year’s Celebrity Apprentice finalist and raised $597,000 for her personal charity the HollyRod Foundation. Now, her unwavering focus on humanitarian work is being recognized in a big way.

On Sunday, July 18, Holly will receive the PBA Beautiful Humanitarian Award, which is given to high profile individuals in the entertainment industry who demonstrate personal style, inner beauty and global contributions.

Prior to Robinson-Peete, Access Hollywood anchor Nancy O’Dell scored the award for her dedication to the March of Dimes, Best Buddies International, Childhelp USA and the American Red Cross.

Robinson-Peete’s 11-year-old charity, which currently serves the Los Angeles area but will eventually become national, was established to bestow a better quality of life to those who face the challenges of Parkinson’s disease and Autism (in honor of her now deceased father, Sesame Street’s original ‘Gordon,‘ and eldest son RJ who were both diagnosed with the ailments) by raising money for families so they can access traditionally costly health services.

Congrats, Holly!

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
