Thursday’s fundraiser — which is helmed by the Greenlights author, Jack Ingram and Mack Brown — raises money for children’s education, health and wellness.

“Yesterday, Camila and I go by one of the high schools that we’re working in over here. And we ask the kids, ‘What’s one of your favorite things about the class?’ And they tell us, ‘Oh, I finally have a safe place to go after school.’ We’re like, ‘Oh, we didn’t even think about that,’” McConaughey said during the event, per Fox 7 Austin. “So simple things that these kids are getting that is helping them make choices where they can prevent getting in trouble before they need a cure later in life. That’s what excites me about [this cause].”

“You know, it’s interesting because when you have little ones, you are physically exhausted, right? And I feel like when you get to the teenagers … it’s almost like you need more energy,” Alves exclusively told Us Weekly in July 2022. “You need more brain power because it becomes all very about the mind, right? It’s like a teenager [is] trying to find their identity and find how they’re going to navigate their lives. So I think that … for me, it’s more challenging in a good way.”

She continued at the time: “When it comes to more of … the ability to really guide, like, a young man or a young woman, it takes a different kind of brain to pass, you know, brain power [and] to guide [or] to navigate through that. But it’s beautiful. It’s inspiring. It also makes you look at a lot of things that you are doing as an adult as well, you know, when you get to that stage. … It’s a beautiful stage.”

McConaughey, who lives in Texas with the Brazil native and their three children, has also been candid about raising the teens.

“Sometimes loving your kids means giving them just what they want,” the Oscar winner quipped to Town & Country in June 2020. “Other times, it means tough love. Affluent people can give their kids everything they want, but they’re not usually going to get what they need. Loving a child is a lot harder if you really give a damn.”
