Superstar couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds donate $1 million to food charities
Celebrity couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have donated $1 million to food charities in light of the coronavirus.
The pair announced their donation on their respective Instagram accounts.
Lively wrote: "Covid-19 has brutally impacted older adults and low income families. Ryan and I are donating $1 million to be split between feeding America and food banks Canada. If you can give, these orgs need our help.
"Though we might 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 at home.
"Sending so much love. Now can someone please tell Ryan that 'emotional distancing' from his mother-in-law is not a thing. Nothing can save him."
While Reynolds wrote: "Covid-19 has brutally impacted older adults and low income families. Blake and I are donating $1 million to be split between feeding America and food banks Canada. If you can give these organisations need our help.
"Take care of your bodies and hearts. Leave room for joy. Call someone who's isolated and might need connection. (Hugh Jackman's # is 1-555-Hugh)
The couple have been married since 2012 and have two children together.
