Also being awarded: Michel J. Martelly, President of The Republic of Haiti, for his Leadership in Education; The Children’s Champion Award will go to John Caudwell, Philanthropist and Founder of Caudwell Children; United Airlines will receive the Partner Award that will be accepted by Executive Vice President of Communications and Government Affairs, Nene Foxhall; and new members to the HHF family, Apl.de.ap and Will.i.am, with the Spirit Award, who will also perform.
“This year is the 10th anniversary of 2004 Asian Ocean Tsunami and we have a goal to commemorate it with the rebuilding of 100 disaster-resilient schools in nine countries and shine a light on the need for a sustained response to help countries recover after a natural disaster. My deepest gratitude to everyone who has supported us over the last few years and helped us to create bigger and more powerful wave then the Tsunami did! Wave of hope, empowerment, opportunities and brighter future.”
– Petra Nemcova, Founder and Chair of HHF
