No, I am not talking about Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively announcing that the Mint cell phone company they are part owners of will not be charging new and existing customers during this unprecedented global event. Though that is pretty spectacular.
And no, I am not talking about Reynolds and Lively donating $1 million to Feeding America and Food Banks Canada, which they just did, and too is certainly spectacular.
I am talking about Reynolds writing as part of his announcement of the donation, “Take care of your bodies and hearts. Leave room for joy. Call someone who’s isolated and might need connection. (Hugh Jackman’s # is 1-555-😥-Hugh).
“We are so grateful for Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s extremely generous donation, and for all of the donations we’ve been receiving,” Dan Nisbet, vice president of Major Gifts at Feeding America, told Variety. “The Feeding America network of 200 food banks is working tirelessly to aid and provide meal assistance to our most vulnerable neighbors — children, the elderly, families struggling with food insecurity and individuals facing job disruptions — throughout our nation during this unprecedented time. Generosity like theirs will make all the difference.”
Thank you, Ryan and Blake, for your incredible support. Your gift means so much to us and the millions of people we serve.🧡— Feeding America (@FeedingAmerica) March 17, 2020
And to everyone who you inspire to give during these uncertain times - every dollar and minute makes a difference. 🧡
