Ciara & Russell Wilson Donate 1 Million Meals to Seattle Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Ciara and Russell Wilson are doing their part to help those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Tuesday on social media, the married couple announced they are donating one million meals to Food Lifeline, a hunger relief organization in Seattle, Washington.

“Obviously this worldwide pandemic, coronavirus, is changing the world, second by second, minute by minute. People are losing their loved ones, elderly and the young, and everyone in between,” the Seattle Seahawks quarterback said in the video.

In the clip, the two expressed sympathy for those who lost their jobs because of the virus, at companies such as Alaska Airlines and Seattle Children’s Hospital.

“We want to encourage everyone out there to join us in whatever way you can, big or small. Everything makes a difference, everything we do together makes a difference,” the songstress added. “Together we will conquer this tough time that we’re going through.”

The state of Washington has been particularly hit hard by COVID-19. Per the Department of Health on Tuesday at 3:15 p.m., there have been at least 1,012 documented cases, with at least 52 reported deaths.

That day, Gov. Jay Inslee signed a measure drawing $200 million from the state’s emergency “rainy day” fund, with $175 million going to the public health system and the remaining $25 million to an unemployment fund for those impacted.

Aside from Ciara and Wilson, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively announced Tuesday that they are donating $1 million to be split between Feeding America and Food Banks Canada.

In January on Instagram, Ciara announced her third pregnancy by posting a picture from the Turks and Caicos.

She and Wilson — who tied the knot in 2016 — welcomed their daughter, Sienna, the following year. Ciara also has a 5-year-old son, Future Jr., with her ex-fiancé.
