Jennifer Garner’s Touching Story of Remembering Children Others Forgot
Who: Jennifer Ganer, Board Member, Save the Children
Day Job: Actress.
Backstory: As a first-grader in West Virginia, Jennifer Garner was friends with a set of twins who came from a poor family. “When I went to second grade, they stayed in first grade, and when I went to fourth grade, they disappeared,” says the 42-year-old. “I just kept thinking, What happened to those kids?”
Driving Force: Rural poverty is an issue that doesn’t get much play on the gala circuit, but that’s what makes her devotion to the issue so remarkable. “Once you become a mom, you realize that everyone loves their children the same amount,” says Garner, who is featured in the forthcoming PBS documentary series A Path Appears. “So if these moms in Arkansas or Mississippi love their kids as much as I love my kids, how is it fair that they don’t have the help they need to make their kids’ lives as good as they can be?”
Success Story: With Save the Children, Garner has helped bring books, toys, and early-childhood development training to families across the country. On a trip to California’s Central Valley—one of the poorest regions in the U.S.—Garner visited a nonverbal 11-month-old who was given a rubber ball. The boy, who’d never seen a ball before, began flapping his arms and babbling at his mother, who, with gentle encouragement, started talking with her baby for the first time. “It was like a light flicked on,” Garner recalls. “As brick-by-brick as this work is, it can change a kid’s life.”

Jennifer talks to Hello! Magazine about balancing work and home and about being the CEO of her household!
Jennifer Garner takes the daily chores that motherhood brings in her stride and thinks there are a lot harder things to do than make a family and career work.
The A-list actress and her husband Ben Affleck raise three children together; daughters Violet, eight, and Seraphina, five, and two-year-old son Samuel.
On top of this, the proud parents are two of the hottest names in Hollywood. While Jennifer relishes her role as a mom, she’ll never quit acting.
“I always think I’m the chief executive officer of our household. There’s nothing like brain surgery about it – it’s all logistics and schedules and remembering to pack lunches and who has a karate lesson after school and thinking about what food we already have in the refrigerator and what I need to buy more of to cook dinner,” Jennifer laughed to the British edition of Hello! magazine.
“It’s the boring nonsense of an average family life but somebody has to do it. I was writing cheques this morning to various people who have done things around the house and I started to laugh because I suddenly thought: ‘You know, I bet Ben doesn’t even know this person’s last name, let alone how much we pay them.’ But that’s how we divide our jobs.”
Jennifer and Ben wed in June 2005 and are often thought of as one of the strongest unions in the industry.
Despite their solid relationship, 42-year-old Jennifer says sometimes they can be affected by the pressures of making a marriage work as celebrities.
“It’s something we pay attention to, yes, but that’s as much because we’ve been together for ten years as it is about Hollywood. We want to be a healthy couple and to make time for us as well as for the children and we find a way to do that,” she smiled.
“Just this week we picked the kids up from school together, took them home then went up the coast to Santa Barbara for the night. We had dinner, woke up in the morning, had breakfast, walked around and were home in time to put the baby down for his afternoon nap.”
On June 24th Jennifer hosted the annual Thirst Gala.
