Every Bit Counts: Kristen Bell’s Kids Adorably Dump Their Piggy Bank To Help Mom Donate To No Kid Hungry

Is there anything Kristen Bell can’t do? She would probably be the first person to narrate a long list of the stuff she’s bad at. But it turns out the candid actress, along with husband Dax Shepherd, has raised some incredibly compassionate kiddos who dumped their piggy bank in order to help Mom and Dad donate money to the No Kid Hungry charity. So, I mean, she’s killing at the parenthood thing—which, in a pandemic, is not easy (ask my toddler, who watched three hours of Peppa Pig yesterday).

Bell explained that she was making a $150,000 donation to the charity, and her daughters—six-year-old Lincoln and five-year-old Delta—overheard her plans.

NKH has always been there for kids who need them. They work tirelessly to provide food for the hungry bellys 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 thier piggy bank. I couldnt have been prouder to add that extra, and important 7 dollars and 96 cents.😍😍😍) #Repost @nokidhungry with @make_repost ・・・ 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.

“When my kids overheard me making the donation, they asked if they could also donate the money from their piggy bank,” Bell said proudly. “I couldn’t have been prouder to add that extra, and important seven dollars and 96 cents.”

The Good Place star and sloth enthusiast explained why she chose to donate to No Kid Hungry. She noted how crucial their work is during the COVID-10 pandemic and how the organization “has always been there for kids who need them. They work tirelessly to provide food for the hungry bellys all over this country.”

While schools and daycares closing around the country due to the pandemic, and many children who relied on school meals for food are going without, the charity is working to make sure that kids remain fed. No Kid Hungry will send vouchers to community programs and schools that remain open to provide nourishing meals to children.

No Kid Hungry was “beyond grateful” to Bell and her family for the adorably uneven gift of $150,007.96. Bell is encouraging folks to join her and her daughters in supporting the charity: “Any amount helps. We can get through this together.”
