They’re the 2012 Variety’s Power of Youth honorees!
The goal of Variety’s Power of Youth initiative is to encourage the next generation of entertainers to support the philanthropic and humanitarian causes closest to their hearts – and to use their positions in popular culture to encourage their peers and millions of fans who look up to them to do the same.
Vanessa will be honored for her work with the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Jonas Brothers for Change for the Children Foundation, Sarah for the George Lopez Foundation, Kat for The Water Project, Jordin for I’m M.A.D., Are You? for ChildHelp and Diego for Vannie E. Cook Children’s Cancer & Hematology Clinic.
Sarah shared in a statement to JJJ, “The Lopez Foundation is really close to my heart and I have such a personal connection to it, especially since I’ve had my own kidney issues for a long time now. I am truly so grateful to be receiving an honor at Variety’s Power of Youth event this year. It’s so rewarding to be able to keep getting the word out about the Lopez Foundation and all the good it does.”
