In the comments under her post, people call her a 'Kindness Queen'.
Jennifer Garner is known to have a heart of gold. Recently, the 13 Going On 30 star took to Instagram to share a quick hack to help people in need, and it only involves things that can fit into a quart-sized Ziploc pouch, according to PEOPLE.
In the clip, Garner filled zip-up plastic bags with everyday items like socks, tissues, and toothbrushes before handing them out to people experiencing homelessness.
She captioned her reel: "Random act of kindness: gather these essentials in a quart sized ziploc bag and keep them in your car to give away when you see someone in need. Inspired by my kind friend, @whitneyformt. ♥️ A pair of thick socks. Kleenex. Hand wipes. Disposable toothbrushes. Chapstick. A couple of granola bars. I forgot this time, but like to add feminine hygiene products, too. Add $5, $10, $20 and a smile. ♥️"
Several people left comments under Garner's post, calling her a "Kindness Queen."
"This is brilliant and deeply kind. Adopting this immediately," wrote Fiona Stiles. "I love this idea!!!!" shared Candace Nelson.
"Love this! Made about 60 packages of something similar for our local food pantries to hand out. It’s the little things you forget about that people really need like warm socks, feminine hygiene products, hand sanitizer etc…" wrote an Instagram user under the video, while another added, "I did this a couple Christmas’ back and I honestly don’t know who got more out of it. I was walking on air after. It felt amazing 🤩."
This is not the first time Garner has paid it forward. Earlier this month, in a video shared on her Instagram Story, the actress purchased coffee for customers at Starbucks and tipped employees.
"May I please have a mint tea grande?" Garner asked a barista before giving the employee money to cover the customers behind her in line. "If I give you this to pay for the people behind me, and then this for you guys. So, that's for you guys. This is just to pay for whomever is behind me. Thank you and pass it on."
Alongside the video, Garner emphasized the importance of good deeds, writing: "Coffee is always a worthwhile little act of kindness."
Also, back in January, Garner baked and delivered homemade cookies to the LAC+USC Medical Center, in a bid to show her support to the staff at the Department of Emergency Medicine—the clinical and academic department within the LAC+USC Medical Center and Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California.
"For a happy day — show your local 🌟 First Responders 🌟 some love," Garner, who documented her baking process, wrote in the caption. "They are still in the thick of it and miles past burn out."
"Thank you, @countyem_la Doctors and Nurses!" she added. "Keep going! ♥️."
