NEW YORK — Actors Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, who recently gave $1 million to food banks, have made another large donation amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“If you can give, these orgs need our help,” Lively wrote in an Instagram post March 16.
She also offered some words of encouragement.
“Though we must be distancing ourselves to protect those who don’t have the opportunity to self-quarantine, we can stay connected,” she wrote at the time. “Remember the lonely and isolated. FaceTime, Skype, make a video. Remember the love that can travel through all this.”
In a similar post that day, Reynolds, who referred to the virus as an expletive, urged his followers to take care of themselves.
“Call someone who’s isolated and might need connection,” he added, jokingly posting a fake phone number for “Wolverine” star Hugh Jackman.
