sofia+vergaraSofia Vergara got awarded nicely by the Screen Actors Guild.

The SAG Foundation presented her with its inaugural Actors Inspiration Award in honor of her commitment to giving back and her support of the Foundation and their children’s literacy programs.

The award was presented by SAG Foundation president JoBeth Williams who announced that Vergara will be the first actor to contribute a bilingual story to their Storyline Online program – a program which has so far generated over 65 million views worldwide in 228 countries and territories.

Sofia was honored to accept the award, saying, “It’s so lovely to be part of an organization that gives back as much as the SAG Foundation does. Currently, 80% of children in the United States that attend at-risk schools read below grade level. Many of these children are bilingual, but it’s not just important to be able to speak the two languages, it’s also important to be able to read and write in them.”

Amen!
