Ariel Winter is showing a big heart at just the right time of year. The “Modern Family” alum’s weekend Instagram stories came with a massive charitable side as Christmas approaches, with the 22-year-old delivering a message to urge fans to check out Joe’s Organization For Youth. Bringing “holiday spirit” to children “who need it most,” the non-profit now sees the former ABC star bringing it plenty of press. Ariel even rocked festive red pajamas to deliver the message. Check it out below.
Scroll for the PJs action. Ariel filmed herself in selfie mode and very pared-down. The girl behind Alex Dunphy wore bold red pajamas with the top button cheekily undone, but this wasn’t about the outfit or any flaunting as the blonde said:
“I know this year has been difficult for everyone,” also hoping everyone’s “staying safe.” Ariel said she wanted to highlight an “easy way you can spread some positivity this season.” The charity mentioned is providing toys for children at Christmas, with Ariel saying “every child deserves a gift.”
Ariel, rocking her blonde hair, confirmed: “I’ve been a part of this organization for seven years,” adding: “It’s truly amazing.”
“Let’s help thousands of children,” Ariel continued, pointing out that Christmas isn’t far away. It was a swipe-up to donate deal for the star’s 4.5 million followers, with Winter closing: “Happy holidays.”
Ariel, FYI, this year handed out cash to a homeless person outside a CVS, so it isn’t just talk. This girl walks the walk, too. Keep scrolling for more photos.
Ariel’s Instagram has been pretty quiet amid COVID, with the star toning down how often she updates. A fun snap showing her in fuzzy PJs was posted ahead of the 2020 U.S. elections, with Ariel’s most recent photo coming as a plunging sexy corset and biker jacket look as she wrote: “If you wanna be my loverrrr you gotta get with my moods.”
Headlines have been anything but dull, though, with Ariel in the news this summer for accidentally slicing off the top of her thumb while attempting Greek cooking at home. See the accident below!
In May, Ariel revealed that quarantine cooking wasn’t quite going to plan. In fact, the actress wound up in the hospital.
“I had chopped four onions just before I chopped this one thing. Chopped four onions and it was great—I just got new knives too,” she said. “So I went to chop a peeled tomato and sliced the top part of my thumb off on a peeled tomato.”
Ariel, handed the tip, then accidentally threw it away. Then came Ariel accidentally flashing her bum at a Chinese grocery store. Scroll for that.
