He's the Canadian gift that keeps on giving! Ryan Reynolds donated $4,000 to Edmonton Food Bank to help them reach their $10,000 goal. He even left a sweet message to the city in Alberta. 

"We hit our goal of $10,000 dollars for the Edmonton Food Bank! Thanks to you and Ryan Reynolds who just dropped a cool 4k. Look at his donation message!" wrote Virgin Radio Edmonton on Facebook.

In his message alongside the donation made on April 2, Reynolds wrote, "I happen to love Edmonton. This donation is in memory of Connor McGrath. Love, Ryan Reynolds".

According to CTV News, the fundraising campaign was organized with help from 104.9 Virgin Radio with the goal to help feed Edmontonians in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reynolds' donation comes two weeks after he and wife Blake Lively donated $1 million to food banks in Canada and the US.

The father of three shared that he and Lively donated the money "to be split between FEEDING AMERICA and FOOD BANKS CANADA. If you can give, those orgs need our help." 

Also this week, Reynolds announced that his company Aviation American Gin is donating $10,000 to Canadian Professional Bartender's Association. 

The company will also "be adding an additional 30% tip for every bottle ordered online and every Aviation cocktail delivered to your home for the month of April." 


Continuing his trend of giving back to Canadian communities, the Deadpool star also video chatted with patients at SickKids Hospital in Toronto.

He gave them a very special peek at the Pikachu doll used in Pokémon Detective Pikachu and showed the actual mask he wore in Deadpool. Both of which he has at his home where he's quarantining with his wife and three daughters.

Virgin Radio's Feed Your Friends are currently at over $15,000 in donations for their fundraiser. You can donate to the Edmonton Food Bank here.
