When it comes to ending childhood hunger, every penny counts.
COVID-19 has closed schools around the world, leaving many kids without access to the hot lunch they usually depend on. Actress Kristen Bell is one of many individuals who has stepped up to support them during these uncertain times, and she had some adorable help!
We’re BEYOND grateful to our friend and #HungerHero @kristenanniebell for her gift of $150,007.96! Thank you for helping us send out even more grants to schools and community groups working to feed kids during the #COVID19 outbreak.
This isn’t the first time fans have seen the star digging into her wallet to help those in need. What gave everyone pause, however, was the strangely specific amount she chose.
Why not make it an even $150,000? Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait long to find out!
On her own Instagram, Bell wrote, “NKH has always been there for kids who need them. They work tirelessly to provide food for the hungry bellies all over this country. I encourage anyone with the means to share to donate as well, any amount helps, so we can get through this together.
(The reason the number is odd, is because when my kids overheard me making the donation, they asked if they could also donate the money from their piggy bank. I couldn’t have been prouder to add that extra, and important, 7 dollars and 96 cents.)
How sweet is that? Bell’s kids sound like they’re just as empathetic and generous as their mom is. What a wonderful reminder that we all have the ability to help others. After all, everything counts!
