Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are donating a million dollars to COVID-19 relief

This is great

As long as Vancouver's Ryan Reynolds keeps doing awesome stuff, we will continue to write about it.

This week he may have out-awesomed his previous high-profile charitable initiative in which he raised $300,000 for SickKids over Christmas.

In a note posted to Instagram he let people know that he and his wife, Blake Lively, are donating a million dollars to the charities Feed Amerca and Food Banks Canada.

He noted that "I think we can all agree, Covid-19 is an asshole" and that "Covid-19 has brutally impacted older adults and low income families," which is why they're donating to initiatives that feed people.

Reynolds encouraged others to pitch in as well, and to not only donate money if they can but to support each other and "Leave room for joy."

Lastly, it wouldn't be a Ryan Reynolds Instagram post if he left out a good-hearted dig at his friend Hugh Jackman. In this case noting that his phone number is 1-855-😢- HUGH. Boo Hugh!

If you're sparked to help feed folks who need it the most:
Donate to Feeding America
Donate to Food Banks Canada
