    And it turns out there's a super adorable reason why the donation isn't a round number — when Kristen's kids found out she was donating, they said they wanted to help out.

    "When my kids overheard me making the donation, they asked if they could also donate the money from their piggy bank," Kristen wrote on Instagram. "I couldn't have been prouder to add that extra, and important 7 dollars and 96 cents."
