Jimmy Page, the guitarist of music group Led Zeppelin, has been honored by Queen Elizabeth II for his work with poor Brazilian children. Thus, he has on Wednesday Dec 14th gone to Buckingham Palace to receive an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, or OBE, from the queen.
Many of his good deeds include set up a safe house, which has supported more than 300 children, and task Brazil offers medical and psychological support, food, clothing and job training. Overwhelmed to be given the accolade, Page commented "I think when you're faced with a plight that's inescapable, and there's something you can do about it, you hope you can make a difference."
