Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively Just Donated $500K To Support At-Risk Canadians

Just when you thought Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively couldn’t get any more lovable, they’ve made yet another incredibly kind donation.

On November 25, CTV News reported that the famous pair had donated half a million dollars to two Canadian organizations supporting at-risk and homeless youth in Canada.

The couple pledged a whopping $250,000 each to Covenant House Vancouver and Covenant House Toronto, who work to provide hot meals, safe spaces, and medical attention to young Canadians in need.

In a statement, Reynolds said, "The young people who pass through the doors of Covenant House more often than not have a story marked by extraordinary trauma.”

$500,000 The donation to Covenant House

The organization confirmed that 2020 has been a tough year for many young people, with “new and evolving challenges” thanks to the pandemic. 

However, the Deadpool star went on to add, “They are so much more than that trauma. They have so much to offer the world.”

He went on to say that the money wasn’t a donation, but instead “an investment in compassion and empathy.”

It’s not the first time Reynolds and Lively have been seriously generous during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier this year, the couple donated $1 million towards good causes, and even gave $5,000 to help find a lost teddy bear! 

More recently, Reynolds teamed up with Canada Goose to provide hundreds of coats and winter supplies to children in Nunavut.

They sound like a pretty nice couple, eh?
