Latest news coming from the West is that celebrities are stepping up to help the ongoing coronavirus scare not just by amplifying the advisories but also by actively contributing towards people who might be at risk. Star couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have collectively donated a whopping amount of $1 million to two charities: Feeding America and Food Banks Canada. The duo has further requested their fans and loved ones to step forward and contribute to more such non-profits.
When we see headlines like these, it makes us proud of how selfless and sensitive Hollywood is increasingly becoming, right?
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds propagate a message of love and hope
Tune into your social media or switch on your television to catch up on some news, all you are going to read and hear is about the rise in coronavirus cases all over the world. It is natural that as the world is in the middle of a health emergency, one can feel lost and overwhelmed at the thought of becoming its victim. But to fight this panic, stress, and anxiety that the coronavirus spread is bringing forth, Ryan Reynolds words become a balm for the soul, reassuring us that love and hope aren’t dead after all. He wrote, “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.”
Feeding India and Food Bank Canada thank Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Verified non-profit organizations, Feeding India and Food Bank Canada were over-joyed at receiving a generous contribution from Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. A spokesperson from Feeding India expressed their gratitude by saying, “The Feeding America network of 200 food banks is working tirelessly to aid and provide meal assistance to our most vulnerable neighbors — children, the elderly, families struggling with food insecurity and individuals facing job disruptions — throughout our nation during this unprecedented time. Generosity like theirs will make all the difference.”
Both Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have never hesitated in doing their bit and making contributions whenever they see that the world needs it. Last year in September, they had donated a combined total of $2 million towards the cause of education for immigrant kids.
