It’s no secret that Jason Mraz cares a lot about sustainability. In the past, the rockin’ raw-foodist has spoken up for dolphins, dawned eco-attire to the Grammy’s, and even asked for climate action in Copenhagen. Now, the well-known singer is being rewarded for all his hard work.
This past weekend, the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) honored Jason as their 2010 Humanitarian of the Year during Liquid Nation Ball 7 in La Jolla, California.
“As a fellow surfer who calls the beaches of San Diego home, Jason is one of our own,” said Fernando Aguerre, SIMA Humanitarian Fund President and Liquid Nation Ball Chairman and co-founder, “He not only inspires us and millions of young people around the world with his amazing musical talent, but we are all immensely impressed by his humble and eager heart to help others and make this world a better place.”
During the ceremony, Mraz gave a brief impromptu musical performance and concluded by auctioning off his guitar. Now that is awesome!
