Country music superstar Taylor Swift will be honored by the Kennedy family and the Robert F. Kennedy Center For Justice and Human Rights for her “commitment to social change.” She’ll be receiving the “Ripple of Hope Award” from the non-profit organization at a special dinner on Monday, December 3rd hosted by Alec Baldwin.
“Taylor Swift’s dedication to advocacy at such a young age continues to inspire me, and I’m delighted to honor her as one of our 2012 Ripple of Hope Award recipients,” said Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights Pres. Kerry Kennedy. “As a young person, aylor has already accomplished so much, and I look forward to watching all that she will do to help build a brighter, more peaceful world for us all.”
Taylor may not have been touring this year, but she’s still been pretty busy. She recently made a $4 million donation to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum towards its massive 2013 expansion. It’s the largest single donation from an individual in the Museum’s history. The donation will go towards an education center named after Taylor after the expansion is complete.
