Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds announced donating $1 million for feeding the poor and elderly affected by COVID-19 on their Instagram.
Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds are a power couple that defines couple goals in many ways. Amidst the Coronavirus fear and panic, the couple has come up with yet another exemplary initiative by donating money to the organizations that work towards eradicating hunger. In her Instagram post, Blake Lively announced, ‘COVID-19 has brutally impacted older adults and low-income families. Ryan and I are donating $1 million to be split between @feedingamerica and @foodbankscanada. If you can give, these orgs need our help.’
However, not everyone has $1million to donate. Hence, Blake Lively also had a piece of advice on how everyone could contribute in their own way.
‘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. 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.’

But here the Gossip Girl star and the mother of three could also not help to pull the leg of husband Ryan Reynolds taking a cheeky dig at him.
‘Now can someone please tell Ryan that ‘emotional distancing’ from his mother-in-law is not a thing. Nothing can save him.’
