A whole slew of A-listers have been generous with their time and their money to help out during the hurricanes in Houston and Florida.

Millions of people across the country have generously given money, time, and even space in their homes to those impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey—and celebrity moms like Kristen Bell, Beyonce, Jennifer Garner, Bethenny Frankel and Janet Jackson are no exception.

Bell was in Orlando to film her new comedy movie Like Father when news of Irma's change-of-path first hit and she was suddenly forced to hunker down and brace for the storm at Walt Disney World's Swan resort.

While there, the actress went into full-on hero mode—first, by "literally saving" her Frozen co-star Josh Gad's entire family:

Then by entertaining the rest of her senior hotel-mates while they hoped for the best:

And then she stopped by one of the shelters to perform a few of the songs from Frozen for those waiting out the storm there.


Clearly this is one bighearted star who is living up to her Instagram bio tagline: "Be kind. Do good. Spread joy."

Meanwhile, at the same time over in Houston, celebrity moms Beyonce and Janet Jackson were busy making stops at area shelters that housed thousands of flood victims.

Houston native Beyonce helped serve meals to Harvey survivors:

While Janet Jackson toured the city with the mayor and visited evacuees at one of the largest shelters, before performing at her previously-scheduled concert.

Jennifer Garner was also in Houston on Friday, where she paid a visit to Hilliard Elementary to join Save the Children in handing out donations. But while she was there, she later explained on Instagram, it was the young kids who ended up inspiring her.

Pretty amazing!

Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel made the trip down to Houston on Saturday, after raising money and supplies via her B Strong Foundation in partnership with Dress for Success.

The reality star met with 200 Dress for Success volunteers to hand out clothing a necessities like toothbrushes, socks bras, underwear and gas cards to more than 500 women and their families:

Bravo, mamas! You are all inspiring women who truly understand what it means to give back. Thank you for taking action and being ready and willing to serve. The world could use more celeb role models like all of you!
