If you’re Jessica Alba, you probably have everything you need to welcome child number two into the world. I mean, I doubt she has “car seat” listed on her registry. So instead, many guests opted to donate to one of her favorite causes, Baby2baby.

The organization helps to provide Los Angeles families that are in need with essential baby gear and clothing. Alba is on the board of Baby2baby along with Nicole Richie. The pregnant actress was at a benefit for the cause earlier this month.

Alba said about Baby2baby, “As a mother, I cannot imagine what it must be like for parents who cannot afford the most basic necessities for their babies. No child, regardless of his/her family’s socio-economic status, should ever be without diapers, food, clothing or hygiene items. Our goal is to help alleviate some of the burden on these families by providing them with these essentials.”

At the actual shower, the ladies in attendance decorated onesies while feasting on French cuisine with some southern influence made by Chef Jarrid Masse. They each walked out with a gift bag that included Drybar gift cards, Lia Sophia jewelry, a Juicy Couture scarf, O.N.E. Coconut Water and a Coach purse.
