Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively Donate $400,000 To Hospitals Weeks After $1 Million Food Bank Donation
We thought we’d start the morning off with some incredibly heart-warming news! Earlier this month we here at MickeyBlog ran a story regarding a $1million dollar Food Bank donation that Hollywood power couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively gave to the food bank to help during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Today, the news has come out that the couple has donated an addition $400,000 to four New York Hospitals. According to a recent post on E! News, this includes $100,000 each to NYU Hospital, Mount Sinai, Northern Westchester Hospital and Elmhurst Hospital.
As we mentioned above, this news comes just a couple of weeks after the $1 million donation that was split between Food Banks Canada and Feeding America.
Below is a post from Lively highlighting the original donation and urging others to give:
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.”
Reynolds has also taken to Instagram to highlight the importance of giving during these uncertain times. He also offered some words of advice encouraging his followers to .“Call someone who’s isolated and might need connection,” before lightening the mood by offering a fake phone number for Wolverine star Hugh Jackman.
