Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are already doing their part to help those in need in their new home of Tampa Bay. The star quarterback signed with the Buccaneers just a couple weeks ago, but he and his wife already made a very generous donation to a local food bank called Feeding Tampa Bay.
The charity announced on Twitter that the couple donated enough money to pay for 750,000 meals.
“We welcome @TomBrady, @giseleofficial
and their family to our community and thank them as they #StandwithFTB by providing 750,000 meals to support our children, families and seniors throughout the 10-county region that we serve,” the tweet read. “RT to show gratitude to the Brady family!”
“So many people will be helped. We are seeing overwhelming need, and this is overwhelming generosity. When we all work together, we are going to get through this!” Metropolitan Ministries replied to the tweet.
“What a perfect way to join our community! Thank you
for supporting your new neighbors in #TampaBay #ThatsMyQuarterback,” one fan added.
On Tuesday, the couple honored the doctors and nurses working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.
They shared their 10-year-old Benjamin’s note in an Instagram video they posted for World Health Day.
“Dear doctors and nurses,” Benjamin’s note read. “This is a very hard in the world right now. Everyone should stay calm. You are all working so hard and because of you, we are going to beat the coronavirus soon. Thank you for all the work you’ve done. You guys are like superheroes. Braver than Batman. Stronger than Superman. And faster than The Flash. You can get any job done. Sending my best wishes.”
Heath officials are urging people to remain in their homes as much as possible and avoid all social gatherings.
Additionally, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
