Back of Jen and Violet Party While Ben Writes About Africa Jennifer Garner wore her favorite Elizabeth and James top out on a Valentine's Day dinner date with Ben Affleck on Saturday before taking Violet to a birthday celebration on Sunday. While Violet continues to smile her way through life, Ben got serious in an essay written in Time magazine about his experiences in the Congo. He's spent a lot of time in Africa trying to raise awareness about the troubles afflicting the Congo. Ben continues to be a strong activist, and it's inspiring that he's setting such a good example for his two little girls as he uses his celebrity for humanitarian causes.
