Michelle Obama will present an award to Taylor Swift at the Kids' Choice Awards. In honor of her involvement with charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, St. Jude Medical Center and Habitat for Humanity, Swift will receive the Big Help Award from the First Lady during Nickelodeon's annual awards show Saturday night. The Big Help Award celebrates the outstanding charity of individuals and looks to spark the same compassion in children. With her presentation, Obama will be effectively passing the torch: she won the award in 2010.
Last year, Swift opened a dress rehearsal for her "Speak Now" tour to the public, raising $750,000 for storm victims in the South. Back in February, Swift announced she'll be taking leukemia patient Kevin McGuire as her date to the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 1st. Her latest hit, "Ours," recently hit Number One on the Billboard country chart.
