Shilpa Shetty will present Richard Gere with the prestigious 'ONE X ONE Difference Award' at a charity gala organized by the world famous 'ONE X ONE Foundation' to raise funds for awareness in welfare of children, at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, on September 9 in Toronto, Canada.

The foundation is honouring the 57-year-old Gere; a practicing Buddhist, in appreciation of his charity work. In the past, Gere has campaigned for ecological causes, AIDS awareness, to promote peace, justice and understanding, and for the rights and lands of tribal people throughout the world. He helped to establish the 'AIDS Care Home' - a residential facility in India for women and children with AIDS, and also created the 'Gere Foundation India Trust' to support a variety of humanitarian programs in India.

"Since the award is presented in recognition of individuals around the world, who have dedicated their lives to fighting child poverty and suffering, it will be a matter of great prestige for Shilpa to be a part of this event," commented the actress's spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar.

Apart from Gere, the ONE X ONE gala will also be honouring personalities such as Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, Assembly of First Nations National Chief Phil Fontaine and supermodel and philanthropist Petra Nemcova with the 'Difference Award'.

The event, hosted by Academy Award winner Matt Damon, will feature performances by Grammy Award winner Shakira, Wyclef Jean of the Fugees, Montreal singing sensation Nikki Yanofsky, the African Children's Choir and many others.

ONE X ONE is known to help create a world where children can live in safety and with dignity. Last year's gala rose over $3.5 million and since the foundation's inception in 2005, it has raised more than $5 million.
