18th March 2020 – (United States) Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively have donated US$1 million to help older adults and low-income families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. His money will be split between Feeding America and Food Banks Canada.
His wife posted in her Instagram post to urge everyone to stay connected despite the need for distancing.
“Remember the lonely and isolated. Facetime, Skype, make a video. Remember the love that can travel through all 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.”
