Jennifer Lawrence Spent Christmas Eve Visiting Sick Kids in the Hospital & the Photos Will Make Your Heart Explode

Christmas came and went yesterday, and we're finally getting to hear about how some of our favorite celebrities spend their holidays — but Jennifer Lawrence's Christmas Eve tradition definitely stands out from the rest.

The actress spent Christmas Eve visiting sick children and their families at a children's hospital in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. As Entertainment Tonight reports, not only is this Jen's fifth time spending her Christmas Eve at Norton's Children's Hospital, but she also donated $2 million to the hospital last year and challenged fans to do what they could to help.

Thanks to the hospital's Instagram account, there's also photo evidence of JLaw meeting patients, staff, doctors and nurses — and it will totally make your heart explode.

"Louisville's own Jennifer Lawrence stopped by Norton Children's Hospital today to visit with patients, families, and staff," Norton's Children's Hospital captioned one of the photos. "This visit has become a tradition for Lawrence each Christmas. Thank you, Jennifer! You sure do bring a smile to all."

As a result of her generosity to the hospital over the last few years, the hospital has even established a wing in her name, called the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. Jen has clearly made giving back to her hometown a priority throughout the whole year — and hopefully she's inspiring her fans to do the same in the process.
