The organizations thanked Lively and Reynolds for their support and noted that the couple had previously donated $500,000 each when the pandemic started in spring 2020.
“Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude ONCE AGAIN to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively for pledging another $500K in support of our COVID-19 Response Funds,” Food Banks Canada said in their statement, adding of Reynolds, “You continue to be not only our favourite Canadian, but also our favourite superhero 😉 (sorry, Hugh Jackman).”
Lively and Reynolds have supported a number of causes over the past year. They donated $200,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund following the death of George Floyd, and $250,000 to Covenant House in Toronto and Vancouver to help at-risk youth struggling with homelessness.
