Jennifer Garner has signed up to become an “Artist Ambassador” for Save the Children’s U.S. Programs. The organization operates early education, literacy, nutritional and disaster relief programs that give a vital boost to children in struggling families.
Garner, herself a mother of two with husband Ben Affleck, has been visiting families and schools and assisting with early education programs. “Three-year olds don’t even have bootstraps to pull on. Our leaders in Washington and in the states must commit every resource to put all children on an equal path to success,” said Garner, a native of West Virginia and the daughter of a schoolteacher. “Working with Save the Children, I hope to help young mothers give the same educational boost to her son that I try to give my own toddler and newborn.”
