AFTER the success of the Do Your Part challenge with DoorDash, Britney Spears and sister Jamie Lynn are once again partnering with the company to help give back.
The famous sisters will be attending a virtual charity dinner on Thursday with Paris Hilton, Chantel Jeffries, Liam Payne, Dinah Jane and more, and Jamie Lynn told The Sun she can't wait to join together with everyone for a great cause.
Jamie Lynn, who makes her much-anticipated return to acting with Netflix’s Sweet Magnolias next Tuesday (May 19), told The Sun she, Britney and other celebs wanted to do this “live, virtual dinner” after the original charity program's success.
She said: "When the whole quarantine first started, [Britney and I] were able to be a part of this Do Your Part challenge with DoorDash, and we were just really trying to help people who… couldn't afford to buy diapers or meals or [other needed items].
"The challenge kind of grew and we decided to, along…with a whole lot of other people, to do this [event]."
The Zoey 101 alum explained: “All [fans] have to do is view and watch the dinner in order to support getting those in need food and meals. That that responsibility is hopefully taken off of them during these hard times.”
Jamie Lynn’s excited to join a “good group of people,” including Britney, Paris, Chantel, Liam, Dinah Jane, Nicole Scherzinger, Marshmello, Gigi Gorgeous, Travis Mills and more for Thursday’s virtual dinner, which fans can catch on YouTube.
The star-studded event was “inspired by the messaging behind Chantel Jeffries’ upcoming single, Come Back to Me feat. Shaylen,” according to a press release.
Together with Feeding America, meals will be donated to families in need amid the coronavirus pandemic based on the number of viewers who tune in for the event.
Jamie Lynn, 29, told The Sun: “I can't imagine not knowing if I'm gonna be able to afford meals for my children.
“If it means that I get to simply just sit on there and have a meal and give back, and all people have to do is watch it, and that helps give someone a meal, I think that's a pretty easy way to help out the world right now.”
DoorDash partnered with Chili’s to put together a Grill & Bar menu for the dinner, including a chips and salsa appetizer, a choice of one of their classic entrees, and a Molten Chocolate Cake for dessert.
Chantel said in a statement: “This time at home has been such an eye opening experience for so many people and it has reminded me personally of what truly matters.
“Getting back to the basics of connection, laughter and spending time with the people you value in your life.”
The Come Back To Me virtual dinner party will air as a live premiere on YouTube on Thursday, May 14 at 8 p.m.
