Kristen Bell’s Kids Used Money From Their Piggy Banks to Donate to Coronavirus Relief
In March 2020, Kristen Bell and her family made a sweet donation to No Kid Hungry. The organization works to feed families in need while schools are closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In an Instagram post, Bell explained that her children also donated from their own piggy banks.
Kristen Bell’s children donated their own money
On March 18, No Kid Hungry thanked Bell and her family for their donation.
“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,” No Kid Hungry wrote in an Instagram post.
Bell then shared that her two young daughters, Lincoln and Delta, donated their own money.
“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,” Bell wrote on Instagram. “(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.”
Kristen Bell recently celebrated Mother’s Day
Bell is married to actor Dax Shepard. Their daughter Lincoln was born in 2013 and their daughter Delta was born in 2014. On May 10, Bell celebrated Mother’s Day on Instagram and gave insight into how she is choosing to raise her daughters with Shepard.
“I am raising women who are not afraid to disagree. Not for disagreements sake, but rather to use their voice when they need to. To not be afraid to speak up and be clear when they have something valuable to add. To participate. To lean in. To be insightful and lead with kindness. To use their gut and ethics to make decisions that sometimes fall outside the lines or buck the system,” Bell wrote.
She continued, “I’m very proud to be a mother to these two. Thank you @daxshepard for being the magic ingredient to their recipe. I’m forever grateful. Happy mothers day to all the moms out their with disagreeable kids. We are gonna be so grateful for their confidence the day they start to run the world.”
One of her daughters still wears diapers
Momsplaining with Kristen Bell is a digital series created by Bell and Ellen DeGeneres in 2018. In a recent episode of the series, Maya Rudolph and Casey Wilson joined in for a discussion and Bell explained that her youngest daughter Delta still wears diapers.
“My oldest daughter, at 21 months, we merely suggested that she use the toilet in the other room and never wore another diaper beyond that,” Bell said of her oldest daughter. “We were lying in bed giggling about this, my husband and I, like, ‘Why does everyone make a big deal out of this potty training? It’s so easy. Just tell the kid to use the toilet.'”
Bell then revealed that her youngest daughter has not been as easy to potty train.
“Currently, my youngest is 5½, still in diapers,” Bell said.
“It’s real relative, isn’t it?” Rudolph said.
“Yes, because every kid is so different,” Bell replied.
