Ben Affleck Pledges Donations to 'Vulnerable' Children Amid Coronavirus Crisis


As the coronavirus continues, many of us, including celebrities like Ben Affleck, want to help.

The 47-year-old actor posted an update to his Instagram about the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. He posted a photo to promote Feeding America and their work in providing meals for children during this devastating time.

The caption read, “During these times of uncertainty, I’m thinking about our most vulnerable populations - children who are losing access to the meals they rely on, our friends and family who are facing job disruptions, the elderly, and low-income families. Join me in supporting @FeedingAmerica, the nationwide network of 200 food banks working tirelessly to feed our neighbors around the country. See the link in my bio to donate.”

After posting the photo, he went on to promote the work that the food bank does for people in need. Affleck encouraged his 4 million followers to donate to the cause during this coronavirus crisis.

The actor has been connected to this charity since 2007, reported Daily Mail.

Affleck has also been affected by coronavirus shutdowns due to the production of his upcoming film, "Hypnotic," being delayed. The ex-husband of Jennifer Garner was supposed to begin filming at the end of April in Los Angeles. The production company, Solstice Studios, has now pushed back the date.
