Vancouver actor, Ryan Reynolds puts money where his mouth is

Reynolds saves the day

Reynolds to the rescue!

B.C.'s own Ryan Reynolds, Hollywood actor, will have to put his money where his mouth is now that a fund-raiser he supports has reached its goal.

CTV News Vancouver island is reporting that Reynolds pledged his support for Victoria-based conservation group Pacific Wild. The fundraiser called, "Make Ryan Pay," is raising money for B.C.’s Great Bear Rainforest, a 6.4-million hectare area of the province’s north and central coast.

The Deadpool star promised to match donations up to $50,000 just last week and the group reached their goal Monday, now Reynolds will be matching donations for a total of $100,000.

This fundraiser was so successful, Pacific Wild says another anonymous donor has been inspired by Reynolds’s campaign and has offered to match even more donations to Pacific Wild.

Until Aug. 3, which is B.C. Day, the anonymous donor will match up to $25,000 in donations. As of Tuesday morning, roughly $7,000 had been raised.
