According to Page Six, the 82-year-old actress and activist took to Instagram to share that the proceeds made from the sale of her sweatsuits would go toward providing "assistance to our service industry and tipped workers affected by COVID-19."

The actress made the announcement with a picture that showed her rocking a gray rainbow-striped tracksuit which had her last name running along its side.

Not only did fans like the post over 100,000 times, but they also dropped comments on how kindhearted Jane is. The actress debuted the tracksuit to her 1.2 million followers just last week with a post where she referred to it as her "Jane Fonda sweats."

According to Vogue, this wouldn't be the first time that Jane would use fashion to make a political statement.

The mother-of-four has become known for rocking her infamous red coat during her Fire Drill Friday demonstrations on Capitol Hill, where she has been arrested more than a few times.

The star has also shared photos of her wearing socks which often came with the face of the climate activist, Greta Thunberg – which is the actress's way of encouraging people to react towards climate change in the same way they behaved towards COVID-19.

Amid Jane's dedicated support towards climate matters, Hollywood Life noted that she has come a long way with her friend of over 40 years, Dolly Parton.

The "Grace and Frankie" star addressed their friendship during the country music icon's legacy in the "Biography: Dolly special" that aired earlier this month. Recounting on the power behind Dolly's songs, Jane said:

"It's like through her songs she opens her arms wide and embraces such a broad swath of people that don't always feel seen."

While wiping away tears, Jane added that it was an extraordinary experience to see how dedicated Dolly’s fans were to the “I Will Always Love You” crooner. Jane and Dolly appeared in the 1980 hit movie "9 to 5" together.
