Actor Priyanka Chopra will be awarded the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award by UNICEF's American chapter at their Snowflake Ball in December.

The award is named after actor-philanthropist Danny Kaye, who was UNICEF's first Goodwill Ambassador.

The 36-year-old actor took to Twitter to express her gratitude on Wednesday.

"So humbled. Thank you @UNICEFUSA for honouring me with the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award at the #UNICEFSnowflake Ball in December!

"My work with @UNICEF on behalf of all the world's children means everything to me. Here's to peace freedom and the right to education #ForEveryChild," Priyanka tweeted.

The actor is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, as a part of which she visited Ethiopia last month.
