Gigi Hadid is sending well wishes from her family farm.

On Wednesday, the model, 25, shared glimpses of her self-isolation life, hanging with her sister, Bella Hadid, at their farm in Pennsylvania. The siblings participated in Vogue's new "Creativity in Crisis" portfolio, in which models from around the world documented their lives while social distancing amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The "postcard" snapshots, taken in March, show the sisters striking poses among their farm animals, as well as a few selfies taken throughout the compound.

“We are sending love and strength to everyone, especially those who are suffering and the people on the front lines; the doctors risking their lives every day, and the paramedics and cops and people who work in grocery stores," Gigi told the magazine. "It’s lucky that a lot of us can work from home. But there are a lot of people who can’t.”

Bella, 23, said the loneliness of the pandemic has been a difficult adjustment for her.

“I’m not great at being alone, and I’m such a workaholic, so being isolated has been hard for me," she said. "Recently, I made a conscious effort to wake up in the morning and say my mantras to get myself into a happier state of mind. I’ve also started tie-dying my Chrome Hearts T-shirts, which we eventually plan on selling to donate the profits to single mothers across America who are struggling right now."

She added, "It’s a blessing that we get to wake up here on our farm, and I want to give back."

Last week, Gigi celebrated her 25th birthday at home, with her boyfriend, Zayn Malik, accompanying her family for the get-together. The former One Direction star wrapped his arms around the sisters as Gigi happily held up "2" and "5" balloons while posing on an outdoor deck.

Gigi captioned the post with a heart and cake emoji, while Bella jokingly commented, "slideeeee to the left. slideeee to the right...Criss cross!!"

"Had the sweetest day celebrating my 25th birthday with my quarantine family, who made it so special for me, along with all the love I felt from all over the world!" Gigi wrote in another post, sharing more photos from the festivities.
