Garner was the host for Monday night’s gala for Save the Children, which focuses on promoting children’s rights and provides relief and helps support children in developing countries.

Other notable stars present were Dakota Fanning, David Bowie‘s widow Iman and Victoria’s Secret Angel Sara Sampaio.

Iman, 61, accepted the Voice Award for her dedication in sharing stories of deprived children, according to Save the Children.

Before the evening began, Garner told ET that she’s worked with Save the Children for the last eight years and thinks it’s important to teach children how to be good human beings.

“It’s so important that you model for your kids how to be a citizen of the world, and I think that’s the very best thing you can do,” she said.
