Ryan Reynolds & Canada Goose Donated Over 300 Coats To Children In Nunavut

Temperatures can reach almost -40 C in the area! 🥶

Hundreds of children living in Nunavut's Arctic Bay will be a lot snugglier this winter, thanks to a huge donation of coats from Ryan Reynolds and Canada Goose.

Earlier this year, Inuk singer-songwriter Becky Han sent out a message on social media, explaining that children from her local school were in need of snow pants and coats ahead of the winter season.

"I tweeted that, not really thinking or expecting much from it. And then it turned into something," Han told CBC News.

300+ New Canada Goose coats were donated

Fast-forward a couple of months and hundreds of Canada Goose parkas, Baffin boots, socks, hats and mitts have arrived in Nunavut.

And it’s all thanks to Ryan Reynolds!

According to Han, the Canadian superstar reached out after seeing the tweet and asked how he could help.

With a little help from Canada Goose, the Deadpool actor then organized the transportation of the winter gear to Inuujaq School in Arctic Bay.

It’s not clear exactly how much money Reynolds contributed towards the donation, but the school’s principal says the children were extremely grateful for the gifts.

“I am very happy that they have comfortable and suitable gear for the climate that they're living in," the principal told CBC News.

With temperatures plummeting to almost -40 C in the area last winter, the extra-snuggly gear is sure to be very useful indeed!

Hailing from Quebec, 15-year-old Olivier Rioux clocks in at a neck-ache-inducing 7 feet, 5.33 inches tall, which has earned him a place in the 2022 edition of the Guinness World Records as the world's tallest living male teenager. That makes him taller than any of the Toronto Raptors players.
