Your feel good moment of the week:

Sarah Michelle Gellar recently co-hosted a charity event supporting the Vera Bradley and Blessings in a Backpack back-to-school tour at  Vista Charter Middle School in Los Angeles, CA.

The actress joined partner brands in the coast-to-coast philanthropy pledge to donate 25,000 food-filled backpacks to underprivileged children and their families across America. The facility’s private school yard was transformed for an afternoon filled with carnival games and take-home prizes including a pirate bounce, ring toss, skee ball, whack-a-mole, life size connect-four, inflatable obstacle course and more.

The event kicked off a week-long initiative where Vera Bradley and Blessings in a Backpack’s philanthropic partnership mobilized communities, individuals and resources to provide new backpacks and food for children who might otherwise go hungry.
