The People’s Choice Awards 2015 featured the presentation of the third annual People’s Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian, presented by Walgreens, to Ben Affleck, in recognition of his work with the Eastern Congo Initiative, a grant-making and advocacy based organization that partners with the Congolese people to increase the quality and quantity of investments in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
