Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds Donate $500K To Support Homeless & Trafficked Youth Across Canada

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are in the giving mood this holiday season and giving back to a cause close to their hearts.

It was just revealed that the celeb couple have donated $500,000 to Covenant House in Vancouver, and their branch in Toronto.

“In an incredible act of kindness and philanthropy, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are donating $250,000 to Covenant House Vancouver and $250,000 to Covenant House Toronto to support homeless, at-risk, and trafficked youth across the nation,” the organization revealed on Twitter this afternoon.

Covenant House aims to support homeless, at-risk and trafficked youth across the country.

This isn’t the first time this year that Ryan and Blake have donated to.

Blake and Ryan first donated $1 million dollars towards coronavirus relief early on in the pandemic, and just recently, put $200,000 towards the NAACP.

“We’ve been teaching our children differently than they way our parents taught us. We want to educate ourselves about other people’s experiences and talk to our kids about everything , all of it…especially our own complicity,” the couple wrote about their donation to the latter, following the protests against systemic racism. “We talk about our bias, blindness and our own mistakes. We look back and see so many mistakes which have led us to deeply examine who we are and who we want to become. They’ve led us to huge avenues of education. We’re committed to raising our kids so they never grow up feeding this insane pattern and so they’ll do their best to never inflict pain on another being consciously or unconsciously.”

If you missed it, this iconic on-screen couple will be reuniting to play Ryan‘s parents in a new movie. See who here!
