The comedienne and TV talk show host will officially be given the award, presented by
Walgreens, on Wednesday, January 6 during the televised ceremony.
"I am so honored to be receiving the People's Choice Humanitarian Award. I think it sums me up perfectly as I am both a human and an itarian."
DeGeneres was chosen this year for her non-stop work helping people and communities in need around the country, and — in another benefit of winning the award — she's selected
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as the beneficiary for a donation that will be made by Walgreens in her honor.
