Reynolds, 45, issued the public plea for donations benefiting Ukrainian refugees via Twitter on Saturday afternoon.

By Sunday, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimated that roughly 368,000 Ukrainian refugees had arrived in neighboring countries, and that number is expected to continue swelling.
Meanwhile, Lively, 44, shared similar sentiment via an Instagram post:
The stars’ pledges come amid the fourth day of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
