Somewhere in between creating music, going on high-energy concert tours, being a role model to millions around the world as well as a mama to two beautiful humans, P!nk has also been on a mission to fight childhood hunger. And last night, she was honoured for her work by American charity, No Kid Hungry.
The superstar, who once pedalled 100 miles to raise funds for the organisation, set up an action village during her 2018 Beautiful Trauma Tour to encourage fans to do their part too and most recently raised $60,000 with Kelly Clarkson through a unique soundwaves art piece, attended the ceremony in Los Angeles accompanied by daughter Willow, where she received the National Champion award.
“Last night was pure magic,” P!nk tweeted, sharing a series of photos from the event.

“Got to sing and raise much needed funds to end childhood hunger in this country. I in 8 kids in America lives with hunger.”
Speaking to Billboard beforehand, P!nk, who has advocated for the charity for a decade, says No Kid Hungry has changed millions of lives:
“I mean, in the last 10 years alone, there are three million more kids getting school breakfast. Their mums have a little bit less to worry about. That makes me want to cry. As a mum, I’ve got two kids. I would do anything to feed them.”
