While last night’s SAG Awards red carpet was chock-full of A-listers like Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, and Selena Gomez, a certain famous couple was conspicuously absent: Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. Now we know why: The pair was in New York City for tonight’s premiere of Reynolds’s newest movie, The Adam Project.
Lively’s rainbow Versace gown is certainly fun to look at, but let’s cut to the chase here: the couple’s sizable one million dollar donation to USA for UNHCR supporting Ukrainian refugees is more worthy of our praise. On Saturday, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds offered to match donations to the nonprofit up to one million dollars, a goal that has already been reached a mere 48 hours later. The organization is on the ground helping anyone fleeing Ukraine with shelter, protection, and safety. While the couple’s goal has already been reached, the agency is still encouraging donations to help displaced families. Take a look at the nonprofit’s website for more information and scroll down to view the newest photos of the couple.
