Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds gave back in a major way.

The Hollywood power couple provided a $200,000 donation to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund in light of the George Floyd protests over the weekend.

They announced the contribution jointly by writing on Instagram, “We’ve never had to worry about preparing our kids for different rules of law or what might happen if we’re pulled over in the car. We don’t know what it’s like to experience that life day in and day out.”

Lively and Reynolds continued, “We can’t imagine feeling that kind of fear and anger. We’re ashamed that in the past we’ve allowed ourselves to be uninformed about how deeply rooted systemic racism is. (We) want to educate ourselves about other people’s experiences and talk to our kids about everything, all of it… especially our own complicity.”
