As most of you are aware Jennifer is from the state of West Virginia where recently there has been flash flooding which has impacted many of the state’s residents. Jennifer has designed a shirt to help raise funds for Save the Children to help reach out to those effected. Get your own shirt by clicking this link and ordering one!
Here is an article from People where Jennifer shared her thoughts.
Jennifer Garner is doing everything she can to help flood victims in her home state of West Virginia.
The actress, 44, and Save the Children, for which she is a trustee and longtime supporter, have launched an Omaze t-shirt campaign to raise funds for recovery efforts after historic flash flooding in late June that left 23 people dead and destroyed hundreds of homes.
The actress tells PEOPLE that she first started to realize how bad the situation was while she was on the phone with her mom, Patricia, who still lives in the state. “She pulled to the side of the road because she couldn’t see,” the actress recalls. “She said, ‘This rain has been so intense, it just won’t stop.”
A state of emergency was declared in 44 of the state’s 55 counties on June 24 after the flash floods and Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said the flooding was “among the worst in a century for some parts of the state.” Garner, whose family was not impacted, and Save the Children immediately started relief efforts to aid victims.
“I’m so proud of the disaster relief response,” the actress says. “Passing out supplies needed, like clothes for babies, diapers, toiletries. Whatever is needed, we do our best to get for them.”
Another emotional component Save the Children offers is to provide a safe place for parents to take their kids. “There are counselors who will play with them and they can address any trauma they’ve been through,” Garner adds. “Kids come in and talk about what they’ve seen while they are playing. Which also gives the parents time and freedom to do what they need to do to figure out their life. It’s especially devastating because so many are living paycheck to paycheck and don’t have flood insurance.”
Every t-shirt, which reads “West Virginia Strong” amid an icon of mountains, benefits Save the Children, which serves families in five West Virginia counties through health, early education and after-school programs. “I wanted it to have mountains to show the deep strength of the people in the state,” Garner says. “This is what Save the Children is about. To go to where people are having a really rough time and help.”
West Virginia has also become a special place for Garner’s three kids, Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4. “At the end of summer, their friends talk about what beautiful vacations they’ve taken and my kids have too but what they’ll almost always say is, ‘This summer I went to West Virginia.’ And that makes me so happy,” the actress says. “When you’re there, you understand. The pace is more forgiving, the air is beautiful, there are fireflies at night. It’s different from what we have in L.A. They are very proud of those roots.”
