We didn’t necessarily need another reason to love Jennifer Lawrence.

But we’ll take it!

In the following video, the Oscar-winning actress pledges $2 million to Kosair Children’s Hospital in Kentucky.

This generous gift was revealed at a press conference held at the Louisville medical center regarding the facility’s plans to redevelop its heart center.

The donation will be used for this purpose and also to build a new cardiac ICU.

"I’m excited to announce we will be establishing the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Kosair Children’s Hospital," Lawrence says in the following video message.

"As part of my effort to help these children and caregivers, I challenge the entire community to get behind this cause and help match my gift by raising an additional $2 million to support all of these brave and inspiring children.”

Last December, Lawrence (a Kentucky native) visited this same medical center for the third year in a row to spread Christmas cheer to young patients.

A press release in recognition of this great deed reads:

"The Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) will feature private rooms dedicated to children recovering from heart procedures, open heart surgery including heart transplant, heart failure and other conditions requiring intensive care.

"The new 14-bed unit will offer space for families to stay with their children. It will be staffed by additional specialists with cardiac critical care training and experience, dedicated nursing staff and other professionals focused solely on heart care."
