I have been in recovery for over a year and part of that is helping out others. @themidnightmission is an incredible organization that helps those in need with housing, training, development and recovery," he added.

He then asked if Raya would join him in donating to the cause.

However, in a 2020 interview on Good Morning America, Affleck confirmed he was not using dating apps to find love after his split with Knives Out actress Ana de Armas.

"I know people who are on them and they have a fun time, but not me," he said at the time. "I would love to have a relationship that was deeply meaningful and one to which I could be deeply committed."
