On April 17, 2020, Jennifer Garner celebrated her 48th birthday, but she didn’t share any photos or videos about her special day on her social media platforms. Instead, Jennifer has been promoting her new charitable venture with fellow movie star Amy Adams Save With Stories. The charity is in conjunction with Save The Children and No Kid Hungry and donations help provide resources to both. Celebrities are reading books to children and the videos are posted on the official Save With Stories’ Instagram and Facebook pages. Jennifer and Amy hope that the celebrity storytime helps children who are going through major life adjustments now that schools across the nation are shut down to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams uploaded a video where they introduced the program. Here is the official description of the Save With Stories program.
“In partnership with Save the Children and No Kid Hungry, we’re offering stories on Instagram and Facebook to provide fun and education to kids and parents stuck at home during the coronavirus outbreak. Your donation will help Save the Children and No Kid Hungry make sure schools and community programs have the support they need to keep brains and bellies full. You’re also supporting our important work to meet the health, education and nutrition needs of kids in other countries impacted by coronavirus.”
