They’re spending their time volunteering! Now that Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard are not filming for their family’s TLC’s hit series Counting On, they are using all of their extra time to help those who are less fortunate. The disgraced reality TV couple and their sons attended the Tim Tebow Foundation’s Night to Shine event at the Duggar family’s Cross Church in Arkansas on Friday, Feb. 9 and — Jill took to Instagram to share a video from their family volunteer night.
“Had a great time at the #nightoshine event tonight at church! We were in the red carpet/paparazzi team! So fun!” the 26-year-old wrote in the caption of a video clip featuring some of the guests arriving at the event.
Night to Shine provides a prom night experience for teens and young adults with special needs, ages 14 and up, according to the organization’s website, which is sponsored by former NFL star Tim Tebow’s foundation. Held at more than 540 churches across the United States, it relies on volunteers from the community to help the attendees feel special.
Fans flooded the comments to thank Jill and her family for volunteering for such a wonderful cause. “My nephew who is autistic participated in this at a church in [Georgia] and his sister volunteered. It’s a wonderful event. Makes my heart smile,” one fan wrote, and another commented, “So awesome. My baby girl has Down syndrome and it’s wonderful to see so many people volunteering for this great event!”
It’s nice to see fans praising Jill and Derick for a good deed because it seems like the couple is constantly coming under fire for something negative — whether it’s Jill’s mom skills or Derick’s extremely controversial views about transgender people. It was Derick’s insensitive comments about his former TLC co-star Jazz Jennings that got the couple removed from the upcoming season of Counting On.
