Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively donate $500k to COVID-19 relief
National treasure Ryan Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively, have done it again.
The A-list Hollywood power couple has donated $500,000 to Food Banks Canada and to Feeding America to help low-income families and vulnerable individuals affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The donation will be split between both hunger-relief charities, Food Banks Canada and Feeding America.

In March, the couple pledged $1 million to both charities and in June, they donated $200,000 to the Indigenous Women’s Leadership Fund.
Food Banks Canada thanked the couple and said Reynolds continues to be “not only our favourite Canadian, but also our favourite superhero (sorry, Hugh Jackman).”
