Paula inspires the world with her many humanitarian efforts.
“So time over time what will change the world, no one knows? The only promise is a day to live, to give and share with one another. See the wisdom from mistakes in our past; the promise of a new day.”
Charity is important and frequently overlooked but there are people who put their heart into the world in the hopes of inspiring others to do the same, inspiring one person at a time.
And it’s awesome to see talent spend time doing what they love most, helping others. In fact, it was just in 2017 when Paula Abdul received the Harry Chapin Memorial Humanitarian Award from The Music Business Association.
“Abdul is an ambassador of We.org, where she uplifts and empowers tens of thousands of youths in cities circling the globe as a speaker for We Day—a movement that unites world-renowned speakers and performers to celebrate the power young people have to change the world. This year, she partnered with Turnaround Arts, a signature program of the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities, to adopt a school in Brooklyn, NY, and help foster arts education in impoverished schools across the nation. In 2014, the Avon Foundation for Women tapped Abdul as their Avon Global Ambassador for their international #CheckYourself digital campaign in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.”
Charities that Paula Abdul has dedicated her love to in hopes of making the world a better place.
President James Donio opened up about Paula Abdul’s charity effort.
“Paula’s philanthropic efforts are a prime example of how artists give back to their community and the world. We are pleased to recognize her and hope her example will remind everyone how important it is to donate time, energy, and influence to charitable causes.
Abdul opened up about the award and her love for helping others in life because it brings “joy.”
“I’ve been blessed to be able to do what I love for a living, but it’s helping others that really brings me the most joy. The work itself is the true reward, but I hope this recognition will bring further awareness to the causes I fight for and inspire others to do the same.”
