Russell Wilson is doing his part during the public health crisis involving COVID-19.
In a video posted from his personal Twitter account this week, Wilson and wife Ciara pledged 1 million meals to local Seattle charity, Seattle Food Lifeline. The loss of jobs around the country and in the Seattle area prompted Wilson and his wife into action.
“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,” Wilson said in the video.
“We want to encourage everyone out there to join us in whatever way that you can, big or small,” Ciara said. “Everything makes a difference. Everything that we do together makes a difference and together we will conquer this tough time we’re going through.”
Below is the video Wilson sent out this week, announcing his family’s pledge:
