Jessica Alba, appearing Thursday on a stream on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, spoke about her efforts to help people in need with her business, The Honest Company, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread globally.
The mom-of-three – to daughters Honor, 11, and Haven, eight, and son Hayes, two, with husband Cash Warren, 41 – said that the company, which sells health and wellness products, has made sure to step up its philanthropic efforts as citywide shutdowns and panic shopping makes many of her items scarce at retail stores.
“With The Honest Company … we’ve donated three million diapers’ in addition to thousands of ‘personal care products because there’s so many families now” in need, the Pomona, California native told Fallon in the appearance.
The Dear Eleanor actress also noted the massive economic impact of the virus, which has left many in short supply of money and goods amid an international health crisis.
“That is the number one need for families right now who are living in poverty, but also families who are out of work,” she said. “They have to choose between diapers and a meal and they shouldn’t have to.“
