In honor of her 25th birthday, Hudgens also received a generous gift from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association of $100,000 donation on behalf of UNICEF.
The donation will fund recovery programs for victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
"It means so, so much to me. I mean it really is an honor," she gushed. "I want to try to help as much as I can because it so close to home for me being Filipino. My mom's from the Philippines. I am so grateful."
Hudgens' mother is Filipina and the money will go towards relief and aid for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
Hudgens starred in the original "High School Musical" when she was 15. She was the character Gabriella. Since then she has starred in several things, including the film "Spring Breakers" with Selena Gomez and James Franco.
