In her exclusive blog for the iVillage blog series CelebVillage, Jennifer Garner shares why she's so passionate about her work as an artist ambassador with the children's nonprofit organization Save the Children. She is a mom of three!
Garner wrote: "The mothers I have visited in rural America live in cinder-block homes, or trailers without windows or space to put a playpen or lay their children on the floor and play with them. These families live in government-sponsored housing without a book or a picture or a crayon in sight. These parents are so isolated -- not always part of a loving community with friends to compare notes and vent to or watch and learn from, but all alone and far from family and often a little bit ashamed and embarrassed by their situations. When you have a little baby, or two or three, you need encouragement and support. These women are raising a baby in a vacuum. The families that Save the Children serves lack the physical tools of early education."
