Ciara and Russell Wilson are letting generosity lead the way during these troubling times. The celebrity couple announced their decision to partner with Food Lifeline in Seattle to help feed those in need.
“Obviously, this worldwide pandemic, coronavirus, is changing the world second by second, [and] minute by minute,” Russell said in a video with his wife on Wednesday (March 18). “People are losing loved ones – the elderly and the young [along with] people in between. [I] think about people losing jobs, even in Seattle,” the NFL player added.
“All these places are being affected all around the world,” Russell Wilson continued. “So what we’ve decided to do is partner up with our local food bank in Seattle, Seattle Food Lifeline, and we’re going to donate a million meals and hopefully make a difference.”
Ciara went on to encourage others to give as well. “We want to encourage everyone out there to join us in whatever way that you can, big or small,” the celebrity mom said. “Everything makes a difference,” CiCi added. “Everything that we do together makes a difference. Together, we will conquer these tough times that we’re going through. We have faith. We want to encourage everyone else out there to keep the faith, and also practice social distancing.”
The coronavirus pandemic has drastically reduced social interaction to the degree of many restaurants and entertainment hubs closing until further notice. Travel is also affected as the majority of Americans remain indoors.
Government officials initially presented the notion of massive self-quarantines through the end of the month. Some officials are now saying that school closures and other self-isolation efforts may continue through the summer.
