Over the last few months, The View asked its viewers to nominate Americans for their Ultimate Volunteer award. The winner, named last week, is Tom Gipson, noted for his selfless efforts building over 1,000 homes nationwide for the homeless.

Gipson appeared on The View today as part of iParticipate's week of volunteerism. He appeared with Michael Troy, director of marketing for Starwoods Hotels and Resorts, who awarded him with one million "Starpoints," which he can use toward any number of fancy Hawaiian vacations. That would explain why they're wearing those leis.
