How Ryan Reynolds and the Toronto Maple Leafs helped raise $850,000 for the SickKids Foundation
The Canadian star and hockey team took part in an ugly sweater fundraising campaign over the holiday season.
In December, Ryan partnered with the SickKids Foundation to try and raise money for the lifesaving care it provides to youngsters. As he said in a clip released back then, the sweater has "become a symbol for how much we all care about children at SickKids Hospital," which is based in Toronto.
He sent some doctors and nurses scrubs based on the hilarious sweater and encouraged fans to donate before midnight on Dec. 24. If they did, Samsung Canada would match any donations up to $100,000.
Plenty of people – including celebrities such as Canadian Olympic legend Andre De Grasse got involved in the campaign, taking to Instagram to share photos and videos of themselves in Ryan's ugly sweater as they encouraged their friends and followers to donate to SickKids.
The Toronto Maple Leafs also decided to pitch in and signed a limited number of Ryan Reynolds holiday sweaters to raise funds for the hospital. They donned some of them during practice.
Incredibly, more than $850,000 was raised for the SickKids Foundation, thanks to Ryan and his ugly sweater army of care. "Turning something ugly into something beautiful is what @sickkidsvs does every day," Ryan wrote on Instagram as he thanked fans for everything they'd done to help.
