Olympic snowboarder Hannah Teter wins VH1’s “Do Something” award for improving the lives of poor children around the world through her own charity and Children International.
The award is given to young people 25 years and younger for their commitment to social change. Teter, who supports seven poor children through Children International, has pledged even more support for the humanitarian organization. She will contribute 40 percent of the proceeds from the sales of her Sweet Cheeks Panties line to feeding malnourished children through Children International’s feeding program.
Children International’s president and CEO Jim Cook said, “Children International is grateful to Hannah Teter for her ongoing compassion for impoverished children around the world. Hannah is richly deserving of the VH1’s recognition as a “Do Something” award recipient and we salute her for this achievement and her good work!”
Established in 1936, Children International is a humanitarian organization with its headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri. Its programs benefit over 335,000 children and their families in 11 countries around the world including Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Zambia, Honduras, India, the Philippines and the United States.
