Gossip Center reports: Last night (January 9) the “Proposal” star was honored with the Favorite Humanitarian award at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards at the Nokia Theatre LA Live in Los Angeles.
Sandra has done extensive work with the Warren Easton Charter High School in New Orleans over the years, and she told press it’s the least she can do.
A humble Bullock explained, “I’m not at all being modest when I say I’m not doing anything compared to what they do on a daily basis.”
Back in 2005, Sandra adopted the school after it sustained $4 million in damages due to Hurricane Katrina’s massive wrath.
She noted that when she saw what happened, “I felt such a profound need to do something for them.”
As a result, Bullock says she’s been inspired by what she’s seen of the kids. “[The students] compete, but they never cut each other down. And all that happens not because it’s easy, but because they do not allow themselves any other option than to succeed.”
