First Lady Michelle Obama will make her first appearance on Nickelodeon's "25th Annual Kids' Choice Awards" Saturday.
Michelle Obama will be on hand to present Grammy winner Taylor Swift with The Big Help Award for her efforts in raising funds and awareness for victims of natural disasters. The event, with host Will Smith, will be telecast live from Los Angeles at 7 p.m. on cable 33.
The First Lady was the recipient of The Big Help Award at the 2010 awards in recognition of her leadership in championing healthier lifestyles for kids through her "Let's Move!" campaign. Earlier this year, she also appeared in a special episode of Nick's hit series "iCarly" in support of her Joining Forces initiative to support military families.
Swift's charitable work has included opening up the last dress rehearsal of her "Speak Now Tour" to fans as a fundraiser for victims of the tornadoes which devastated parts of the Southeast. The event raised more than $750,000 with 100 percent of ticket sales being donated directly to benefit tornado victims via the "Speak Now ... Help Now" Fund.
It is a fund established through the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
Swift's continues her partnerships with Make-A-Wish Foundation, St. Jude Medical Center, Habitat for Humanity, TJ Martell Foundation, The Red Cross and its international and regional affiliates, The Salvation Army, Nick's Kids, and the Victory Junction Gang Camp, plus libraries, schools and educational initiatives around the country.
