This Christmas season, good cheer mixed with gratitude has been going around, especially as one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples makes the holidays better for those who need help the most. Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively are now donating to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank as a part of the latter’s Baby Steps Nutrition Program.

Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively Just Made Christmas Better

Just when the world thought Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively couldn’t get any better, the couple promises to ensure that no child in need shall go through the holiday season without the help they need. As such, the duo has opened up the line for donations to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank in collaboration with the latter. The GVFB, a registered charity based in British Columbia, has been a non-profit since the economic recession of 1981.

 

The Greater Vancouver Food Bank was officially registered in 1983 but the organization had begun its work before the papers were processed. In 1982, the charity reportedly helped 200 people get their needed help. Today, as part of their internal program, the expanding non-profit directly supports people via four distribution localities each week and has a connection with 119 agencies with whom the GVFB collaborates, aiming to resolve the hunger crisis.

As the Christmas spirit takes hold of people around the world, the charitable work that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively participated in and encouraged has inspired thousands to take the time out and lend their help in whatever capacity possible, too. Some have donated directly to the GVFB while others participated locally to donate food or money to their preferred charities or the local food banks.

The rest have expressed their awe and appreciation of the two actors who have never failed to lend a hand in a time when no child should be in need.

The Spirited actor has recently expanded his work to collaborate, partner with, and buy several businesses looking to promote accessibility and provide creative outreach. Companies under Ryan Reynolds’s name, like Aviation Gin, Mint Mobile, and Maximum Effort productions have prospered, especially in recent years. His latest investment and ownership of the underdog Welsh football club, Wrexham AFC, along with actor Rob McElhenney has spurred the club and its fanbase into a global phenomenon in a matter of a year.
