Actors Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively to Match Up to $1 Million in Aid to Help Displaced Ukrainians

Actors Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have pledged to match every donation up to $1 million for Ukrainians displaced by the Russian invasion.

Both Reynolds and Lively promoted donations to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and announced that they will “double the support.”

“In 48 hours, countless Ukrainians were forced to flee their homes to neighboring countries. They need protection. When you donate, we’ll match it up to $1,000,000, creating double the support,” Reynolds said on Twitter on Feb. 27.

Lively posted a similar message on Instagram with a UNHCR photo showing a child.

According to UNHCR, around 368,000 Ukrainian refugees had arrived in neighboring countries as of Feb. 28.
