Teigen was greeted with a standing ovation. During her acceptance speech, she said: “Being with John has taught me a lot about award acceptance and mainly that acceptance of any of these awards are not for yourself. It is the acceptance that what you’ve done what you can do to shine a light on thousands of others who work infinitely harder than you to make this world a brighter, more beautiful and empathetic place.” Teigen continued, “All I do is try my best to ensure that children have what they need… No kid should go without the basic supplies they need to be happy and healthy in their home…Baby2Baby understands this and they are committed to meeting these challenges everyday.”
