Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Donate $1 Million to Food Banks Amid Coronavirus Crisis

Our favourite Hollywood couple (ok, equal favourites with Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee FurnessBlake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have announced they’re donating US $1 million to support organisations on the frontlines of the coronavirus crisis.

“I think we can all agree, Covid-19 is an a-hole,” Ryan wrote on Twitter.

The pair announced on social media that the donation will be split between Feeding America and Food Banks Canada which are both collecting and distributing food supplies to the elderly and vulnerable communities.

Blake is also encouraging everyone to show a little kindness during these difficult times:

“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.”

She ends her message in true Blake Lively-style, poking fun at her hubby: “Now can someone please tell Ryan that ’emotional distancing’ from his mother-in-law is not a thing. Nothing can save him.”
