Jennifer Lawrence knows that Christmas is really about giving, rather than receiving. Although it’s always nice to have a few gifts to unwrap during the holidays, true joy comes from our service to others. That’s why Lawrence took time out from her busy schedule to spread a little holiday cheer on Christmas Eve in Louisville, Kentucky.
According to The Courier-Journal, Jennifer Lawrence visited Norton’s Children’s Hospital to meet with some of the patients and staff members.
This isn’t the first time that Lawrence has visited this particular hospital, though her visits aren’t usually known to the media. A media representative for Norton wasn’t even aware that Lawrence was planning on visiting this Christmas.
Jennifer and Norton Children’s Hospital have a long history together. Jennifer donated $2 million dollars to the hospital this past February, in order to construct the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.
While we admire Jennifer for her selflessness and generosity, she’s not the only star that has thought of others this Christmas.

The 24-year-old singer/actress took a few hours out of her day to put some smiles on the children’s faces at Cook Children’s Medical Center, located in Fort Worth, Texas.
