"Snuggling with my littles feeling grateful and emotional as we’ve been adjusting to this new normal -I can’t help but think of all the families with babies & young children who aren’t getting what they need to get by," Alba captioned a series of images. "My company [Honest Company] pledged today to donate 3M diapers 20k personal care products and 30k wipes to [Baby2Baby] -but the need for these families includes so much more.

"[Stay safe] [practice kindness] [sending love] to you all," she concluded the post.

Baby2Baby, which provides children living in poverty with diapers, clothing, and other basic necessities, is requesting donations to provide "diapers, wipes, blankets, hygiene products, school supplies and more” to “homeless shelters, health clinics and head start centers."

As a result of the global pandemic, thousands of people have been left without a job or with shortened hours as business across the country temporarily close in an attempt to help slow the spread of the virus. As a result, many parents have been left unable to afford essential items.

Meanwhile, grocery stores and retailers are experiencing a shortage of items as people stock up for the coming weeks, with a now viral TikTok video showing a mother in tears and slamming bulk-buyers after she went to the store in search of diapers only to find bare shelves.
