Joey King Visits Children's Hospital in Atlanta, Talks Giving Back Around the Holidays

Joey King helped brighten the day for kids at the a children’s hospital in Atlanta this week!

The 22-year-old actress is in town right now while filming the Netflix movie Uglies and she teamed up with Coca-Cola North American and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to surprise the kids.

“It was a gloomy rainy morning, but the sun came out just in time for my visit to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Egleston Hospital. It was wonderful to meet some of the hospital staff who take such great care of these kids, and see the love and care they poured into decorating the space to bring some Real Magic to them during the holidays,” Joey told JustJared.com.

She added, “The best part, by far, was getting the chance to speak with a few of the kids during our virtual meet and greet last night – I’m super grateful to Coca-Cola North America for that experience.”

This fall, Coca-Cola launched its new global brand platform, “Real Magic,” as an invitation to the world to celebrate humanity and a reminder that magic lives in the moments of connection that happen when people come together to embrace our unique perspectives, just like we come together to share a Coke.

“Overall, you don’t need big gestures to make a difference to those around you,” Joey said. “I think for me it’s all of the little things I do for those in my life – and them for me – every day that have meant the most, especially this year. It can be as simple as making time for the people you love to watch a movie with, cooking with your best friend, or sharing a Coke – to inspire Real Magic.”

We just got a first look at one of Joey‘s upcoming movies!
