Sophia is being honored for raising awareness of social and ecological issues.
She spent the past nine years making us cry on One Tree Hill, and she’s about to make us laugh on her new sitcom Partners, but beyond her work on the small screen, Sophia Bush has always been passionate about philanthropy. That’s why she’s been chosen to receive the Bing Philanthropy Award at the 14th annual Young Hollywood Awards.
Hosted by Twilight star Ashley Greene, the YHAs will take place June 14 in honor of the best and brightest in Young Hollywood.
Not only has Sophia, 29, teamed with numerous organizations in recent years — F**k Cancer and Global Green, to name just a few — but she regularly uses Twitter and other social media platforms to keep her fans socially and ecologically conscious.
