Stuck in Florida during Hurricane Irma, Kristen Bell gave back in a big way.

Kristen Bell was in Florida filming her new Netflix series, “Like Father,” when Hurricane Irma came to town.

On Instagram, Bell jokingly called the storm a “nasty bitch” as she and her crew prepared to evacuate. Unfortunately, things didn’t go exactly as planned.

“We didn’t have the option to leave, so here we are,” she wrote on Instagram. “Just doing our best and trying to stay positive but cautious.”

Hunkered down at the Walt Disney World Dolphin resort in Orlando, Bell got to work helping out family, friends, and complete strangers ahead of the storm.  

Her “Frozen” co-star Josh Gad posted a thank-you to Bell, who was able to help his parents and extended family secure rooms at her hotel. Gad wrote on Instagram that she “literally saved my parents and my entire family tonight from Hurricane Irma.”

Similarly, Bell came through for actress Jennifer Carpenter’s aunt and grandma.

On Friday night, Bell made her way over to Orlando’s Meadow Woods Middle School for a little sing-a-long with people there taking shelter.

Back at the hotel, a group of seniors from downstate had been evacuated to the hotel, and Bell was ready to make some new friends.

Bingo, hugging, more singing, and hallway wheelchair races kept the crowd entertained.

Bell made the best of a bad situation and used her personal celebrity to help and comfort others.

“It’s sort of sad that it takes a natural disaster to bring out the best in people, but that’s really, truly what I’ve seen,” said Bell during an interview with Good Day Sacramento. “Everyone is helping everyone here.”

Whether talking about the response to Harvey and its aftermath or the ongoing efforts to help those affected by Irma, it really is remarkable to see humanity living up to its best, showing us the potential and power of empathy.
