Jennifer Garner is regarded for having a golden heart. According to Individuals, the 13 Going On 30 singer recently took to Instagram to give a quick technique for helping people in need that only requires items that fit inside a quart-sized Ziploc pouch.
In the video, Garner fills zip-top plastic bags with common supplies like socks, Kleenex, and toothbrushes before giving them to homeless people.
Her reel was labeled as follows: “Gather these necessities in a quart-sized ziploc bag and put it in your car to give away whenever you see someone in need. @whitneyformt, a good friend of mine, was the inspiration for this. ♥️ Socks that are thick. Kleenex. Wipes for the hands. Toothbrushes that can be thrown away. Chapstick. A few of granola bars are on the way. I forgot to provide feminine hygiene supplies this time, but I usually do. Add $5, $10, or $20, as well as a grin.”
Several others referred to Garner as the “Kindness Queen” in comments left under her post.
“This is both smart and heartfelt. This is something I’m going to start doing right away “Fiona Stiles penned the piece. Candace Nelson said, “I adore this idea!!!!”
“This is fantastic! I made roughly 60 packages of something similar to donate to our local food banks. Under the video, one Instagram user remarked, “It’s the little things you forget about that people truly need like warm socks, feminine hygiene items, hand sanitizer, etc…”, while another added, “I did this a couple Christmas’ back and I honestly don’t know who got more out of it.” After that, I felt like I was walking on air. It was incredible.”
Garner isn’t the first person to pay it forward. In a video posted to her Instagram Story earlier this month, the actress ordered coffee for people at Starbucks and tipped employees.
“May I have a mint tea grande, please?” Garner inquired of a barista before handing her money to cover the individuals in line behind her. “If I give you this to pay for the individuals who helped me, and then this for you, that’ll be OK. That’s all I’ve got for you. This is simply to compensate whoever is behind me. Thank you for your time and consideration, and please forward this information to others.”
“Coffee is always a worthwhile little act of kindness,” Garner wrote beside the video, emphasising the importance of good deeds.
Garner also baked and delivered homemade cookies to the LAC+USC Medical Center in January to show her support for the staff of the Department of Emergency Medicine, which is both a clinical and academic department within the LAC+USC Medical Center and the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine.
“For a joyous day – show your local First Responders some love,” wrote Garner in the post, who documented her baking process. “They’re still in the heart of it and have miles to go before they burn out.”
