Taylor Swift to be honored by Kennedy family for her commitment to social change

Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift must have made quite the impression on the Kennedy family on the 4th of July because now word comes that the closest thing America has to Royalty will be honoring Taylor this December at a high-priced black-tie event in New York.

According ABS-CBN News, Taylor will be honored by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights for her "commitment to social change" and will receive the center's Ripple of Hope Award.  

The black-tie dinner will take place December 3 in New York and will be 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," the center's president Kerry Kennedy said in a statement.

She cited Swift's support for arts education and disaster-stricken communities, "and especially the compassion she's shown as a proud defender against bullying and LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) discrimination," as the motivations for the prize.

"As a young person, Taylor 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."

A spokeswoman for the center said that the Ripple of Hope Award "lauds leaders of the international business, entertainment, and activist communities who demonstrate commitment to social change."

Past winners of the award include U2 front man Bono, actor George Clooney, and Al Gore.

Fans can buy tickets to the dinner, although you may need to be in a higher tax bracket if you're planning to — tickets run $1,500 for a single guest up to $250,000 for two seats at the head table plus a "premium table" for 10.  Tickets can be purchased on the EventBrite website.

  2. Brit that had actually played basketball at Marist and after that give up to come to be a fighter. Deciding on at No. Why wouldn we find out from record concerning such events/processes since we do learn/remember numerous advantages of past in locations of our intellectual understanding?
