Jim Wahlberg Asks 'Wahlburgers' Fans to Pay Tribute to Mom Alma in This Special Way

As you may have heard, Mark Wahlberg and Donnie Wahlberg's mother, Alma Wahlberg, passed away recently at age 78. She welcomed nine children over the years, including the two actors and Jim Wahlberg, who paid tribute to his mother on Instagram. On the social media site, Jim not only paid tribute to Alma, but he also shared how the family's fans can pay tribute to her in their own ways.

Jim, who is one of Donnie and Mark's older brothers, first posted a throwback photo of himself and his mother to mark her passing. He let the photo speak for itself, as he did not include a caption. Although, fans soon responded to the post with a ton of support and love. Mark also commented on the snap to share some love to his older brother, as he commented with a few emojis, including a red heart. That wasn't all that Jim posted in honor of Alma. In a separate post, he shared how fans can honor the family's late matriarch by including details about her favorite charitable cause.

He shared that this organization helps provide food to those in need. According to Jim, Alma Cares, Inc. is located in Hingham, MA at 350 Lincoln Street, Suite 2501.

Numerous fans also responded to this post to share their support for the Wahlberg family in light of the heartbreaking news. One fan wrote, "Thanks for sharing this info and your beautiful, strong, loving Mom with the World! We all fell in love with her."

Jim, of course, was not the only member of the Wahlberg family who paid tribute to Alma on social media.

Donnie's post involved the actor sharing a touching video in which he and his mother can be seen sharing many special moments together. He captioned the video with, in part, "I’m so blessed to have been brought into this world by, raised by, taught by and set on my life’s path by, such an amazing woman."
