His supermodel wife talked about giving back and supporting those in need. A lot of people struggle during the pandemic. Millions of people are left without a job.
“I’ve been researching ways I can help during this time. Now more than ever, we need to have solidarity and empathy,” the supermodel said on Instagram Saturday. “I wanted to share some organizations that I am donating to in case anyone would like to support them too. In Brazil, in addition to supporting the Santa Casa de Misericórdia hospital in Porto Alegre, I am creating a special fund, called Luz Alliance, in partnership with the @brazilfound, to help children, the elderly and the most vulnerable families, through the donation of food and hygiene kits.
“In the United States, we partnered with @wheelsup8760 and @feedingamerica on their @mealsup initiative and donated to food banks in both Tampa @feedingtampabay and Boston @gr8bosfoodbank. Everyone can find their own way of doing good. The important thing is to take care of each other the best way we can.”
Brady and his wife have donated 750,000 meals to a food bank in Tampa Bay, Florida. They decided to give back to their new community. Brady signed a two-year deal with the Buccaneers.

“Thank you, Tom Brady & Gisele Bündchen for supporting our mission to end hunger here, especially in this time of uncertainty and in response to the impact of COVID-19,” the April 2 post reads. “With your donation, we will provide 750K meals to those in need.”
Feeding America is the largest hunger-relief and food rescue organization in the US. They thanked Brady for his efforts.
“Such an amazing gift! Thank you, Tom, for helping us get much-needed meals to our neighbors during this uncertain time.”
