Justin Timberlake Honored With Big Help Award For Charity Work
The 24th annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards were filmed on Saturday in Los Angeles, and the “Big Help Award” went to Justin Timberlake.
The award was presented by actress Rosario Dawson, and honors individuals who take an active role in their community and the world around them to inspire kids to help others.
In a video that was shown, it became apparent that the 30-year-old has been doing just that. Timberlake stated, “My two loves are golf and the environment.” And it went on to highlight Timberlake’s work with the Shriners Hospital for Children, and his annual “Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open,” which is a PGA golf tournament that helps to raise money and awareness for the organization.
When the Social Network star accepted the award, he asked the audience to stand up and yell as loudly as they could if they had ever helped anyone, “Even your sister, ew!” The room filled with cheers as most of the audience took a stand. Timberlake then encouraged them to continue on with the good work, “Tonight, kids, when you get home, do something totally unexpected— Listen to your parents.”
