An Oscar winner with a huge heart! Jennifer Lawrence, 27, has made her annual holiday visit to Norton Children’s Hospital, helping to cheer up young patients and their families who are spending the holiday in the medical facility.
This is a special tradition for the “mother!” star, since for the past four years, and always around Christmas, she has visited the children’s hospital in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, ready to bring some holiday cheer to the little kids. The award winning actress has visited the same medical center every year since 2013, back when it was named Kosair Children’s Hospital.
The hospital posted pics of the renowned movie star posing with hospital patients and staff on Sunday, saying that the visit has “become a tradition for Lawrence each Christmas.”
In the images shared on the hospital’s official social media accounts, the “X-Men” actress wore a black top and check shirt.
“Louisville’s own Jennifer Lawrence stopped by Norton Children’s today to visit with patients, families, and staff,” they wrote on the post. “This visit has become a tradition for Lawrence each Christmas. Thank you, Jennifer! You sure do bring a smile to all!”
Back in 2016, The Hunger Games star donated $2 million to create the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at the hospital. The 14-bed unit is destined to offer private rooms for families to stay with their children who are recovering from heart procedures such as open-heart surgery and heart transplants.
“My family and I have met so many wonderful children on our visits to the hospital,” the Academy Award winning actress said in a press release at the time. “Their strength and courage is inspiring.”
She also challenged other donors to match her amount, asking “everyone to give whatever they can to raise an additional $2 million to help.”
But that’s not the only kind of Christmas joy that the Silver Linings Playbook star shared during the holidays. Lawrence also gave her best friend Kris Jenner a jokey present for Christmas.
Looks like we are starting off 2018 with another big milestone…sooo happy to announce that Maddie is FINALLY going to be a big sister👶🏼2017 was filled with some of the biggest challenges of my life, as well as some of the biggest blessings, so I made a choice to lay low this year to focus on truly becoming my best self as a person and as an artist. During that time, I continued working on my music and telling my story, which has created some of my most honest work and I CANT wait to share that with you all very soon. 2018 is going to be filled with many milestones both personally and professionally. I appreciate each of you for your patience and support through it all. 2018 has a lot coming, so GET READY…….. #12DaysofJLS
