For this year’s People’s Choice Awards, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is the presenting sponsor for the Favorite Humanitarian Award. Enterprise is presenting this award in honor of its brand’s commitment to pick up the communities where its customers and employees live and work, according to the company.

Tyler Perry will receive the fifth annual Favorite Humanitarian Award. He was chosen in recognition of his efforts of the Tyler Perry Foundation, which has donated millions of dollars to organizations such as Feeding America, the NAACP, and Charity Water to help eradicate homelessness, support city rights causes, and aid survivors of natural disasters.

Enterprise donated $100,000 to Perry’s charity of choice: the Global Medical Relief Fund for Children. This nonprofit provides children — many of them amputees and burn victims who have no local medical resources — with medical care and on-going treatment.

“We are honored to present Tyler Perry with this year’s People’s Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian, and we thank our partners at Enterprise for their generous donation to the Global Medical Relief Fund on his behalf,” said Fred Nelson, president of the People’s Choice Awards. “Mr. Perry’s decades-long commitment to helping those in need is incomparable, and the GMRF is an amazing organization, dedicated to aiding children in desperate need of care. I’m proud that our show provides a platform for this well-deserved recognition.”

Past winners of this ward include Sandra Bullock in 2013 for her work with the Warren Easton High School in New Orleans, Ben Affleck in 2015 to recognize his work with the Eastern Congo Initiative, and Ellen DeGeneres in 2016 for her support to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
