Amy Adams joins Instagram to raise funds for kids affected by school closure amid COVID-19 threat


If Instagram is a great tool for celebrities to show you what they’re like outside of their film personas, it’s a relief to know that Amy Adams’s new Instagram account has so far confirmed that she is very much like a nice Amy Adams character. Adams, one of our foremost purveyors of supernaturally nice characters (when she isn’t having an onscreen existential crisis), has joined Instagram to be very nice in a time of crisis. In her first post, Adams announced that she has partnered with Jennifer Garner (of her own utopically earnest Instagram) to read children’s stories for those stuck inside during the coronavirus pandemic and also to raise money for children in need. In her first post, she reads The Dinosaur Princess, a story by her daughter, Aviana, illustrated by her artist husband, Darren Le Gallo. Adams reads the story for seven minutes with a soothing voice, exuding the energy of the most calming elementary-school teacher you ever had. Hey, maybe that’s the role that will finally win her that Oscar.

I’ve decided to finally join to shine a spotlight on kids across the country who need our help and support during this difficult time. My friend @jennifer.garner and I are launching @SAVEWITHSTORIES – a spot to watch your favorite celebrities read your favorite children’s books. We are galvanizing as a community to support a new fund for a combined effort between SAVE THE CHILDREN and Share Our Strength’s NO KID HUNGRY (and a big thank you to our founding publisher, Scholastic♥️). ⁣ ⁣ THIRTY MILLION CHILDREN in the United States rely on school for food. School closures will hit vulnerable communities hard and @savethechildren and @nokidhungry are on the ground and ready to serve. They just need our help! ⁣ ⁣ These funds will help us make sure that families know how to find meals when schools are closed, support mobile meal trucks, food banks and other community feeding programs, provide educational toys, books and worksheets, and support out-of-school-time programs to help kids make up for lost time in the classroom. ⁣ ⁣ If you can manage a one time gift of $10, please text SAVE to 20222. If another amount would work better for you, please visit our website—link in bio. There is no maximum and there is no minimum—together we will rise and together we can help. #SAVEWITHSTORIES
