    "for" or "through"?

    Please first look at the following sentences.
    She has received a lot of praises. For example, she received the 2007 BRICK Award recognizing the efforts of young people to change the world. But ___ all this, Hannah still has the normal life of a Winnipeg schoolgirl, except that she pays regular visits to homeless people.
    I was told the blank should be filled with "through". But I understand that "for all" could mean "in spite of". So I wonder whether "for" is acceptable here or not. Any reply will be appreciated. Thank you all.

    Re: "for" or "through"?

    It doesn't work for me. I would say a lot of praise in the first sentence.

    I'd want to know where the OP found the quoted text before answering.
