On November 29th, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF will host its annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball. The event will commemorate UNICEF’s 70th anniversary and honor UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Katy Perry and Philanthropist Moll Anderson for their extraordinary commitment to put children first.

Global superstar Katy Perry will receive the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award for her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in support of the world’s most vulnerable children. She has served in this role since 2013, with a special focus on engaging young people in UNICEF’s work, traveling to some of the poorest and most remote regions in Madagascar and Vietnam to bring awareness to UNICEF’s child protection, education and health programs.  In December 2015, at the time of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, she recorded a unique weather report to call for action on climate change and bring attention to the devastating effects of the phenomenon on children. In October 2013, she joined in UNICEF’s celebration of the International Day of the Girl Child, lending her hit song “Roar” to the soundtrack of a new PSA to inspire girls and help them become tomorrow’s champions. Through her continued work with UNICEF, Perry is a tireless champion for children, working to improve the lives of children and adolescents around the world.

This is more than just another one of her awards - Audrey Hepburn was deeply involved in Unicef during the last five years of her life (before she died of cancer); she had chosen her passionate work for it over resurrecting her acting career - and that Katy gets this award named after her makes me so very happy for her. It's very special and I'm rather sure it means very much to Katy. ❤️❤️❤️

Thanks for the pics! She did look lovely.
I'd like to add my combined parts of Katy's speech during the award ceremony I've collected from news articles, and these few links to more info about her appearance at the event...

Katy: "I've always had a voice – a singing voice – but I've never had a voice like I've had before. Hillary has lit that voice inside of me, and that light will never go out, it will continue to get brighter and brighter and brighter. Thank you Hillary. You motivate me and so many millions of people. We appreciate you for your incredible work and your heart.” "Even though I've only been on a few field visits, I'm happy I've helped highlight the effects of climate change, which is real," "No more just hoping for the best and easy living. We
need to come together united for the best. ... We were all children at one time: born innocent, vulnerable, fragile, and we all needed a helping hand to grow into the people that we are today. If we could keep that thought in our hearts, despite our differences, imagine the kindness, acceptance and empathy that would light the world and remind us once again that we're all in this together." "Truly, my work has only just begin and this award is not a finish line, but a starting line. It will be constant reminder to get back in the field and shine my spotlight on where it matters most."
