The children of Kids for Peace were overjoyed to present our “2015 Peace Hero Award” to Susan Sarandon. Kids for Peace youth worldwide selected Ms. Sarandon as their Peace Hero in recognition of her being an exemplary role model in social activism, philanthropy, global service, and courageous peacemaking. Susan lives by the words of our Peace Pledge and definitely makes our world a much better place.
The ceremony featured a joyful presentation from the children highlighting Sarandon's philanthropic work. Rising star Cody Lovaas performed the Kids for Peace Theme Song and an original. Following the presentation, Susan joined the children in making Peace Packs (knapsacks filled with school supplies, toiletries, toys and a note of friendship) for orphans in Nepal, one of many causes important to Sarandon.
Susan was absolutely gracious, warm, engaging, curious, and kind throughout the entire ceremony. She was generous with photos, autographs and genuine interest in the activities of each child. The children could not have selected a more perfect Peace Hero!
Congratulations Susan Sarandon!
