Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have announced that they’ve donated $1 million to two hunger relief organizations on the frontlines helping some of the most vulnerable populations during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I think we can all agree, Covid-19 is an a–hole,” Reynolds wrote on his Twitter feed. “If you can help, visit, http://FeedingAmerica.org and/or http://FoodBanksCanada.ca.”
“Covid-19 has brutally impacted older adults and low income families,” the “Deadpool” star also wrote. “Blake & I are donating $1 million to be split between Feeding America and Food Banks Canada. If you can give, these orgs need our help.”
Lively wrote on Instagram, “Though we must be distancing ourselves to protect those who don’t have the opportunity to self quarantine, we can stay connected. Remember the lonely and isolated. Facetime, Skype, make a video. Remember the love that can travel through all this.”
Feed America operates a network of food banks throughout the U.S. while Food Banks Canada does the same in Reynold’s native Canada.
Reynolds also wrote in his tweet, “Take care of your bodies and hearts. Leave room for joy. Call someone who’s isolated and might need connection.”
The actor then jokingly prompted his 15.6 million followers to call Hugh Jackman but listing his phone number as “1-555-[sad face emoji]-Hugh.”
And Lively also quipped, “Now can someone please tell Ryan that ’emotional distancing’ from his mother in law is not a thing. Nothing can save him.”
