On Instagram, Lively posted a photo writing, "Covid-19 has brutally impacted older adults and low income families. Ryan & I are donating $1 million to be split between @feedingamerica and @foobankscanada. If you can give, these orgs need our help." She then went on to remind her fans about social distancing, and encourage them to help each other through it. "Though we must be distancing ourselves to protect those who don't have the opportunity to self quarantine, we can stay connected. Remember the lonely and isolated. Facetime, Skype, make a video. Remember the love that can travel through all this," she wrote.
