The Deadpool starrer has got a façade that we're all aware of. From the image in his movies, he clearly seems to have the impressive avatar that people love. Besides, not just the reel life alone, he is a good guy in real life too. And by coming across his gesture to offer $5,000 for the safe return of a teddy bear, you'd start loving him more.
The news came to his notice after seeing the post of Deborah Goble, a Canadian Broadcast Corporation reporter. It was about a 28-year-old woman from Vancouver whose backpack was stolen. Out of all the things, there was a custom-made teddy bear plush toy with a recorded message from her mother.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation apprised that Mara Soriano had moved to a new apartment in Vancouver’s West End. Then she got a phone call from one of her friends who had promised to be her helping hand. But she got hit by a van and needed help.
While Soriano was helping her injured friend, she wasn’t aware of her backpack, which contained a Build-A-Bear and an iPad, along with some essential documents. However, she just wanted to get back the teddy bear. As her mother had died in June 2019 aged 53 due to cancer, she had recorded a voice message for her daughter before going into the hospice. This final message was the only belonging left with Soriano.
She said, “It was so important to me because she had a recording on it that was specifically just for me that said she loved me, she was proud of me, and she’ll always be with me. I hugged it every time I missed her.” In response to Goble’s post, Soriano also posted one of her pictures with her mother.
Vancouver: $5,000 to anyone who returns this bear to Mara. Zero questions asked. I think we all need this bear to come home. https://t.co/L4teoxoY50

From the security camera footage, it was conspicuous that a man had taken her bag away. She also posted the footage on Twitter. Ryan Reynolds came to the rescue and offered $5,000 to the one who could get her stolen teddy bear back. Since his tweet, other celebrities, including Dan Levy and Zach Braff, came in to support her as well.
Also, the Vancouver Police Department tweeted, asking for the information of the stolen bear. Finally, on July 29, everyone on Twitter was relieved to know that the missing bear returned. Soriano informed with the news: “MAMABEAR IS HOME!!!” Soriano had met the man who found the bear at a park, and she asked Deborah Goble to be there, as she could get it back with her help.
She informed that the missing bear was returned in a decent condition. Soriano tweeted: “Two kind Samaritans returned her to us in a safe space, voice is there, just no glasses!!”
