Jessica Alba and Honor were photographed arriving at the Baby2baby offices in Los Angeles on Tuesday (September 18, 2012) where they dropped off donations.  Click on the previews above to view more photos.

Jessica recently spoke to People at the Women Doing Good Awards about teaching her daughters about the benefits of giving back.

“I talk to Honor about not wasting and recycling. I talk to her about having so many things and that there are children out there who don’t have what she has,” Alba, 31, told PEOPLE at Self magazine‘s Women Doing Good Awards on Wednesday.

“So when she is done playing with something or outgrows something,” she continues, “it goes to a baby who doesn’t have it.”

“Honor is just running her mouth about her observations on the world, and her desire to be a doctor mermaid,” Alba shares, adding Haven has been hitting a few milestones of her own lately.

“I think Haven will be walking soon and every day she is saying a new word — right now it’s hot,” she says.

From her acting — she will next appear in A.C.O.D. — to running her eco-friendly company, Alba is a strong believer in staying organized — but admits even the best laid plans can go awry.

“I am really into schedules. It helps me stay sane,” she says. “You will never be perfect so just trying to take it one day at a time, do as much as you can and live in the moment.”

Priorities USA Action, Majority PAC, House Majority PAC to Throw Super-O-Rama Party at Democratic National Convention

Closing Night Event, Hosted by Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, to Feature Performances by Pitbull and Scissor Sisters

Washington, D.C. – Priorities USA Action, Majority PAC and House Majority PAC today announced that they will jointly throw a convention closing party, Super-O-Rama, on Thursday, September 6, after President Obama accepts the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in Charlotte.

Award-winning actress Jessica Alba and producer Cash Warren will host the event as musical sensations Pitbull and Scissor Sisters perform. Super-O-Rama will be held at the Fillmore Charlotte, part of the NC Music Factory, the premier music and entertainment destination in the Queen City.

Pitbull has risen to become a global superstar as both a recording and performing artist after releasing his debut album in 2004. The Miami-native recently teamed with international superstar Shakira for his latest single “Get It Started,” the first release from his upcoming Global Warming album. “Get It Started” comes on the heels of Pitbull’s 2 million-selling single “Back In Time,” the chart-topping anthem from the action-adventure-comedy Men In Black 3. His 2012 Planet Pit world tour sold out concerts in Mexico, Canada and Europe, before heading to the United States, Japan and Australia.

No lesser authority than Bono has called Scissor Sisters “the best pop group in the world,” and their first three albums have sold more than seven million copies worldwide. They have collaborated with artists like Elton John and Kylie Minogue, and have pioneered an eclectic dance-pop-rock sound that has brought them international success.

Jessica Alba is known worldwide for her successful acting career in such films as “Fantastic Four” and “Sin City” and James Cameron’s “Dark Angel.” The mother of two daughters, she launched The Honest Company in 2012, which produces safe, effective and affordable eco-friendly products for the home, children and babies. She is a spokesperson for the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families Coalition and sits on the board of directors of Baby2Baby. Other charitable affiliations also include 1Goal, V-Day, Healthy Child Healthy World, The Children’s Defense Fund, Declare Yourself and Voto Latino. Her passion for social justice, particularly for women and children, has led to several trips to Capitol Hill.

Cash Warren is an entrepreneur and producer whose production credits include the Christian Hosoi documentary “Rising Sun,” “Crips and Bloods: Made in America,” “Being Terry Kennedy” and ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary on Sonny Vaccaro “Sole Man.” Recently, Warren launched two premium content channels on YouTube, theNOCtv, a sports lifestyle and entertainment channel with the producers of the ESPY Awards and YOMYOMF with director Justin Lin and top online personalities Ryan Higa and KevJumba. Prior to YOMYOMF and theNOCtv, Cash was a co-founder of ibeatyou.com, a destination site and distributed platform for user-generated contests.

America’s Moms Are Watching U.S. Senate: Pass the Safe Chemicals Act!

Thursday is a big — and long overdue — day. And American moms, like me, will be tuned in and watching.

Usually, hearings in Congress get little attention from the general public, let alone busy moms. But this Thursday is a big day for those of us who care about protecting American families from toxic chemicals.

The U.S. Senate will be holding a hearing on “The Safe Chemicals Act,” a bill sponsored by Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ). The bill, a much-needed overhaul of our antiquated laws, will help us all protect our families from toxic chemicals.

I just gave birth to my second child, and I can tell you that there is no stronger instinct for a mom then wanting to protect her kids and keep them safe. My children have changed my life in wonderful ways. They’ve brought me tremendous joy. They’ve also made me conscious of every product I buy, from toys to mattresses to cleaning products. I hope that the decisions I make will shield my children from harm. Yet today, it’s impossible to be sure. As parents, we just don’t have the information we need to keep our kids safe from toxic chemicals in many household products.

Many moms and dads believe that our government is making sure there aren’t toxic chemicals in our products. And for a long time, I thought the same thing.

However, nothing could be further from the truth. It is still legal to use lead, mercury, asbestos and formaldehyde in many common household products. Even worse, there are thousands of other chemicals in use that have never been tested for safety at all!

We require all kinds of companies to make sure that their products are safe before they’re sold, from food to pharmaceuticals to pickup trucks. And yet there is no requirement that the chemicals used in consumer products be tested for safety, even if they’re used in products made for children.

Would you give your child medicine that hadn’t been tested to make sure it was safe?

Parents are often shocked to find out that there are dangerous chemicals in their child’s plastic baby bottles, toys, baby soap, shower curtains, and even in their crib mattresses. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

That’s why parents are demanding action from Congress now. That’s why we need the Safe Chemicals Act.

I am hopeful that members of both parties will see this as an issue of basic common sense — for the health of their kids and grandkids and those of their constituents. I believe they will do the right thing. And I am encouraged by bipartisan efforts to make progress on this issue. Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, the lead Republican on the committee hearing this bill, has joined with Senator Lautenberg to seek common ground on this issue.

I hope the companies that make chemicals and household products will step up, too, and become partners in passing this important legislation. The Safe Chemicals Act will enhance their brands and their businesses, and, most importantly, serve their customers well — especially their tiniest ones.

Moms (and dads!) across the country are busy people. They are trying to raise their kids and support their families. But on Thursday, lots of us moms will be watching online on behalf of parents across the country.

Every kid has the right to be safe in her home. Every mom has the right to know that the products she buys for her child are free of toxic chemicals.

We have hope and faith in our political system to fix this problem, and we are counting on our U.S. Senators to get it done. For the sake of our kids, do not let us down.

For more information and to join the campaign go to the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families website www.saferchemicals.org or Facebook page. Click here to call your U.S. Senator today and ask them to support The Safe Chemicals Act of 2011.
