The money donated to the initiative will go towards food and education for children affected by the coronavirus

Initiated donations will go to associations save the children and No child is hungry, who provide food and educational materials to children all year round, and whose services will be even more needed in the midst of the pandemic. Later, the money raised from the effort will also go towards after-school and summer programs that help children who need extra support for lost time in class.

Garner and Adams also appeared in a video together in another Instagram video to help raise awareness of the effort.
