“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. “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.” (source)
Taylor and the Kennedys have established quite a relationship in recent months having spent time together at the Sundance Film Festival for the premiere of Ethel, a film based on Ethel Kennedy, and more recently she spent her 4th of July with the iconic American family.
The award ceremony will be taking place at the Marriott Marquis in New York City on December 3, 2012. Tickets for the event range from $1500 to $250,000, and can be purchased at Eventbrite.com
