"There's no pediatric education and medicine in sub-Saharan Africa," Edwards, 47, tells PEOPLE. "One hospital there has always had a dream of having a children's hospital so we're really hoping to achieve that dream. They need the funding and we're telling their story."

Beyond that, it seems J.Lo has been influencing more than his fashion choices, giving him what he calls an "education in music appreciation." "Jen has a sophisticated taste in music, and is a such a gifted songwriter," says Affleck.
