A five-time Grand Slam singles and nine-time Grand Slam doubles winner, Martina Hingis, accepted the 2007 Meredith Inspiration Award in Charleston three days ago. The award is given to a female professional athlete who has inspired women from all over the world to achieve their best, both in personal and in professional life. Martina earned this award by her action both on and off the court. Charleston donated $5,000, and Hingis added another $5,000; these $10,000 she chose to give to UNICEF’s Basic Education and Gender Equality program. (source: martinaworld.com)
