In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Hollywood power couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are stepping up to help provide food to those in need.
The couple announced they will be donating $1 million to two separate food non-profits: Feeding America and Food Banks Canada.
“Covid-19 has brutally impacted older adults and low-income families,” Blake shared on her Instagram feed. “Ryan & I are donating $1 million to be split between @feedingamerica and @foodbankscanada. If you can give, these orgs need our help.”
“Though we must be distancing ourselves to protect those who don’t have the opportunity to self quarantine, we can stay connected,” Blake told fans. “Remember the lonely and isolated. Facetime, Skype, make a video. Remember the love that can travel through all of this.”
“Communities are stepping up – shopping for the elderly, making lunches for children. We can all do something for one another, even if that’s simply staying home.”
“Sending so much love,” Blake ended her post, before joking, “Now can someone please tell Ryan that “emotional distancing” from his mother in law is not a thing. Nothing can save him.”
