Life as we know it has put on hiatus as we've been ordered to remain quarantined amid the coronavirus pandemic. This has applied to businesses, not deemed 'essential' such as grocery stores, hospitals, and pharmacies. With the threat of the COVID-19 virus still looming, events across the country have been either canceled or postponed including concerts, festivals, and even election primaries. Also on the list of things that have, at least, been postponed are the 'Make-a-Wish' events that are created for children, usually with life-threatening medical conditions.

It's truly heartbreaking that these children's special moments have been put on hold for the betterment of the country, especially knowing that they may not have much time left in their lives. But the Jonas Brothers and Ryan Reynolds have reached out to them to offer words of encouragement and hope.

On Monday, each of them took to social media to share a positive message for each of those children longing for their dreams to come true and urged for them to find something to do in the moment that makes them happy amid the crisis.

"We know a lot of these wishes have been canceled with everything that has been going on, but we just hope you know that you are loved and we think you guys are the greatest," Kevin Jonas said in the social media post to the children.

"I know these are tough times, confusing times, but I think the thing that’s helping me through it -- and maybe this will help all of you -- is I’ve been spending some time just writing," Nick Jonas chimed in during the social media video post. "It could be in a journal, it could be a short story or a poem or a song. Whatever brings you happiness, that’s the thing to focus on right now."

"I hope this video brings you some joy like all the Make-a-Wish kids bring me and my brothers so much joy when we get to meet you," Joe added.

In Reynold's post, he made sure to share a touching message, while also adding his usual 'humor'. In the Instagram post, the actor joked that many of the children's wishes were to meet Dwayne 'The Rock Johnson. "I know 99.99 percent of your wishes weren’t to meet me at all," Reynolds began.

"They were probably to meet The Rock. I’ve met The Rock and I can tell you that it’s well worth a wish. Anyway, hope you guys are doing OK. Just sending [because] maybe this will brighten someone’s spirits over there," he continued.

"I love the Make-a-Wish Foundation," the 'Deadpool' star said. "It’s been a huge part of my DNA ever since I started in show business and in every movie that I do, I look so forward to the Make-a-Wish visits. A lot of them were canceled on this film I’m doing, Red Notice, right now and then I got to thinking how there’s probably a lot of other wishes that got canceled as well, so that’s why I’m sending this video. Sending you guys tons of love."

A handful of other celebrities joined in sending their words of encouragement including Chef Gordon Ramsey, Terry Crews, and JoJo Siwa.
