Instead, the Welsh captain will be inducted into the charity's Hall of Fame in person at a later date as he switches his attention to the prospect of preparing to make another impressive impact as a British & Irish Lion.
The 29-year-old back row player featured in all three Tests against the All Blacks four years ago having missed out on selection for Sir Clive Woodward's original touring party.
Jones would love to repeat that feat this time around against the Springboks but, for now at least, he is concentrating on nothing more than joining up with his new team-mates and doing everything he can to help the current crop Lions retaining their 100-per-cent record.
"I am delighted to have received this call-up and I am just really looking forward to joining the squad later this week," said Jones, who has just led his country to successive Test wins over Canada and the United States of America.
"Obviously it is disappointing for Stephen Ferris who is a superb player and I wish him a quick and full recovery from his injury.
"I am anxious to help the Lions in any way I can and I recognise how this is a great honour for me and my family."
As for the recognition of his work with the NSPCC, Jones admitted he is equally proud of the honour being bestowed upon him.
"I'm honoured and delighted to be in the Hall of Fame 2009. I take my role as children's champion for the Welsh Rugby Union very seriously and am proud to be associated with the work of the NSPCC.
"I have supported the NSPCC for over three years and it's incredibly rewarding to know that my support has played a part in ending cruelty to children. The NSPCC plays a vital role in changing attitudes and behaviours as well as delivering services for the benefit of children and young people across the UK and I hope that my involvement will encourage others to help in the fight to protect children."
