This year, she teamed up with Starbucks to bring more holiday magic, and she joined “All American” star Greta Onieogou in finding the perfect recipient of some festive cheer – an “All American” crew member and cast favorite.
On Thursday’s episode, Greta told Jennifer about Marquis Martin, a crew member and dear friend on her show, who recently welcomed 1-month-old son Elijzah with partner Ariel. Greta added that Marquis has become a part of her “big family” throughout the show’s five seasons.
Jennifer loves surprising people, especially for the holidays. When Greta asked Jennifer to help, Jennifer was all-in. Inspired by her partnership with Starbucks to spread joy this holiday season, Jennifer also enlisted her friends at Starbucks to create holiday magic on the “All American” set, bringing holiday drinks and gift cards for everyone, all against the backdrop of some beautiful fresh snow and holiday decorations.
Jennifer and Greta gathered all of Marquis’ friends and cast members to show him just how much he means to them… and then Jennifer gifted everyone at the party with Starbucks gift cards, encouraging them to uplift someone else’s day this holiday season.
At the party, Marquis gave an update on baby Elijzah, telling Jennifer, “The baby is healthy and strong.”
Starbucks is inspiring others — including Jennifer — to spread joy to their loved ones and communities this holiday season, so to continue the spirit of giving, everyone in the audience got a Starbucks gift card.
How are you spreading joy and cheer this holiday season?
