Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds decided to help a stranger who offered a reward to anyone who found an item of sentimental value that had been lost.
A 28-year-old girl named Mara Soriano had lost her backpack with her identity card, her and her fiance’s passport, their respective social security cards, a chequebook, an iPad and a Nintendo Switch. But the most valuable item in the backpack was a teddy bear.
It turned out to be a toy with a dictaphone that recorded the words of Soriano’s mother, who died of cancer last June.
According to Mara, she gave him the bear with a recorded voice message shortly before her death. The bear also wears black-rimmed glasses as her mother did.
“I love you, I am proud of you, I will always be with you” says the teddy bear with glasses and dressed in a denim jacket.
Ryan Reynolds heard about the news and decided to help the young woman and report on her Twitter about the $ 5,000 prize for the bear.
“Vancouver: $ 5,000 to anyone who returns this bear to Mara. Zero questions asked. I think we all need this bear to come home,” wrote the Deadpool star.
Other actors, Zack Braff and Dan Levy, also expressed their support for the young woman.
And finally Mamabear is home.
