Ciara and Russell Wilson are helping those in need amid the ongoing spread of COVID-19. The couple announced that they will be making a $1 million donation to Food Lifeline, an nonprofit organization that distributes food to several undeserved areas including food banks, shelters, urban “food desserts,” senior housing agencies and other meal programs across Western Washington state.
“Obviously this worldwide pandemic, the coronavirus, is changing the world, second by second, minute by minute. People are losing loved ones…the elderly, people in between. People losing jobs…even in Seattle, our friends at Alaska Airlines, Seattle Children’s hospital, all these places are being affected all over the world. ” the Seattle Seahawks quarterback said in an Instagram video announcing their donation on Tuesday (March 17).
“We want to encourage everyone out there to join us in whatever way you can, big or small. Everything makes a difference,” added Ciara. “Everything we do together makes a difference, and together we will conquer this tough time we’re going through. We have faith, and we want to encourage everyone else out there to keep the faith. Also practice social distancing, and be blessed. We’re praying for everyone out there. Love you guys. ”
