  • My hometown of New Orleans, as well as all Louisiana,

  • is facing a lot of challenges these days.

  • And so, of course, my friends Drew Brees

  • and his wife, Brittany, step right up to help.

  • Hey, guys.

  • Hi, Ellen.

  • How are you all doing?

  • The whole family.

  • Ryland is outside playing already,

  • but the boys wanted to say hi.

  • All right.

  • You can run outside.

  • Shut the door behind you.

  • Basketball.

  • They're going to play basketball now.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Yay.

  • School's out.

  • Shut the door, Callen.

  • All right.

  • Homeschool's over.

  • It's crazy time.

  • So who is-- by the way, it's so great

  • to see both of your faces.

  • I've been texting with both of you.

  • And I reached out immediately when I heard

  • what you did for New Orleans.

  • And you're both just awesome.

  • I love you both, and you know that.

  • So it's great to see your faces and talk to you like this.

  • Who's teaching the kids?

  • Both of you?

  • One of you?

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Brett is by far taking the lion's share

  • of that responsibility at this point.

  • We're making the boys call her Mrs. Brees.

  • Bring her shiny red apples.

  • And--

  • Well, I flunked two kids already.

  • And I may be fired for drinking on the job.

  • So it's not going well.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I like it.

  • I like it.

  • It sounds like most of my teachers when I went to school.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • So what's happening-- what's happening with alone time?

  • I mean, it's-- this is crazy for all of us in so many ways.

  • But let's just talk about the obvious, which

  • is, do you get alone time?

  • We haven't really gotten any alone time.

  • We might have come up with a plan,

  • with having a scavenger hunt inside the house that

  • ends with us locking them in the closet.

  • But we haven't perfected it yet.

  • That may be our only window.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • They can't hear us.

  • It's totally fine.

  • Right.

  • They're locked outside right now.

  • This is the most alone time--

  • This is our alone time.

  • We've had in probably three weeks, right here.

  • Right here, right now.

  • All right.

  • Then I'll check in with you daily.

  • We can do it a few times a day, and--

  • It's party time now.

  • Who knows what they're doing out there.

  • Right.

  • Let them go.

  • They're fine.

  • OK.

  • So let's talk about this.

  • You donated $5 million to Louisiana.

  • Again--

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • I love you both so much.

  • Where is this money going exactly?

  • So at this point, obviously, we spent

  • a lot of time assessing the greatest need in Louisiana,

  • not just New Orleans, but throughout the state.

  • And as you know, so much of the lifeblood of Louisiana

  • is small business.

  • It's the hospitality industry.

  • And so many of those people have been laid off,

  • don't have a source of income right now.

  • And we felt like, just from talking to many people,

  • that the biggest need were meals,

  • were being able to feed kids on meal programs.

  • Feeding seniors, getting them meals.

  • Feeding front-line health care workers.

  • Child care facilities, where a lot of these health

  • care workers are needing to drop their kids

  • off so that they can go and help people that have the virus.

  • So I think, for us, we felt like, let's align ourselves

  • with a great organization like Second Harvest Food Bank, which

  • we did, in New Orleans.

  • They are really in charge of all five food banks

  • throughout the state of Louisiana.

  • And first thing was first, is how can we

  • feed as many people as possible and make sure

  • that they have some of their most basic needs,

  • which I think the first thing you think of

  • is, roof over your head and the ability to feed your family.

  • Wow, that's-- yeah, you think about all the different--

  • as we know, we're watching the ripple effect of this virus

  • and what it's creating.

  • And obviously a lot of kids depend

  • on their meals going to school.

  • And as you said, there's a lot of elderly people

  • who can't get out.

  • There's so many people in need right now.

  • So that is going to help a lot of people,

  • y'all are awesome for doing that.

  • You've been on the phone with the mayor of New Orleans,

  • the governor of New Orleans--

  • the governor of Louisiana, trying to--

  • what are they saying?

  • Well, again, the need is great.

  • And at this point, you know, New Orleans kind of

  • became one of the epicenters along with New York

  • and a few other places.

  • A lot of people feel like maybe that was Mardi Gras related.

  • You know, when all of a sudden 1.4 million people

  • show up in New Orleans, whereas otherwise you're

  • talking about a city of 300,000.

  • So all those people left, but somehow the coronavirus stayed.

  • And you know, it became a big problem.

  • So I think the biggest message is, not only are you

  • battling with the fact that so many people are now out of work

  • and have no ability to support their family,

  • but you also have a lot of people

  • that are now in danger of contracting the virus

  • just because it is so present.

  • So it's that-- it's that challenge

  • of keeping people safe, keeping them away from the virus.

  • And then still finding a way to support them.

  • And that's why, you know, what we're

  • finding with so many of the meal programs

  • is, the way that you pack-- it's different than just creating

  • a soup kitchen or something, where everybody can show up,

  • and you can feed thousands, right?

  • This is where you have to be so careful with individually

  • packing each and every meal.

  • Delivering them in a very safe manner.

  • And doing it to where, you know, you're not--

  • no one is slipping through the cracks.

  • And we want to make sure that we can get to everybody.

  • But that's the biggest challenge right

  • now is identifying those people and getting to them.

  • Wow, We'll be right back.

  • All right, we are back with the incredible Drew and Brittany

  • Brees.

  • What is your--

  • I mean, I think a lot of people look to both of you for hope.

  • What is your message to everybody right now?

  • That's suffering in the country?

  • It's exactly that.

  • It is a message of hope.

  • It is, that we--

  • we're going to get through this, but we need to get through it

  • together, right?

  • We all need to lean on one another.

  • It's a bit of, you know, love your neighbor.

  • Take care of your neighbor.

  • Look out for your neighbor.

  • You know, everybody has a part in these relief efforts,

  • in this recovery.

  • The responsibility to do the right thing in

  • regards to protecting your family

  • and keeping them out of harm's way.

  • And at the same time, that keeps others out of harm's way

  • as well.

  • So listen, we would be the first ones to tell you

  • that this is not--

  • this is not an easy situation, right?

  • I think so many families, so many parents,

  • have been thrust into really, really difficult circumstances,

  • right?

  • They're working from home.

  • And yet they have to homeschool their kids at the same time.

  • So nothing about this is normal for anybody, right?

  • But it has to become the new normal.

  • And it's the new routine for however long it takes.

  • And I think the more disciplined, the more diligent

  • we are with this right now, I think the better off

  • we will come on the backside of this.

  • But there is no doubt in my mind, our country,

  • our citizens, our people, we are so resilient.

  • We have so much resolve.

  • We've been through so much.

  • And listen, I think the best of America, the best of Americans

  • will show once we get out of this process,

  • and we are on with normal life.

  • Just through adversity.

  • I think, you know, it makes you so much stronger.

  • It challenges you in a way, it stretches you in a way.

  • And it shows you the things you took

  • for granted before, you know.

  • And the things you took advantage of.

  • And to really look at the positive in this situation.

  • If you look around, so many people

  • are doing amazing things.

  • You know, these health care workers,

  • these doctors, these nurses.

  • All of these people are really stepping up and rising

  • to the occasion, you know.

  • Look at the best in people, and that's

  • what we're continuing to do.

  • You know, hopefully, other people lead by example.

  • And more people-- it just kind of trickles down, you know.

  • It's going to be OK.

  • If we can just all do this together, it's going to be OK.

  • Absolutely.

  • And I think that we are all going to come out of this,

  • and it does shape us.

  • It's a whole new way that we're all going to learn how to live,

  • and we're going to get the good from everything

  • that you're saying.

  • And what I love about it, everybody

  • is finding new ways to be creative.

  • Because we're stuck inside, and we're

  • having to do things with our family, and our partners,

  • or whoever.

  • And Brittany, I think you--

  • the ideas that you've come up with already.

  • Just the beer pong with your kids, with water.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • What a great idea.

  • Also I think one of my favorite things

  • that you came up with is shaving Drew's chest for charity.

  • I look forward to seeing that.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And I'm sure there's many--

  • we have lots of time to think of more things to do to Drew.

  • These are all skill sets that will really benefit the kids,

  • I think, down the line.

  • You know--

  • And listen, if they miss a couple grades,

  • and they go straight to college, they're ready.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • See, you're always thinking.

  • Drew, let's talk about football.

  • So first of all, how is Sean Payton,

  • the coach of the Saints-- was tested positive

  • for coronacoronavirus.
