Ryan Reynolds isn't just a superhero on the big screen..

The Deadpool star is offering a $5,000 reward for the return of a woman's stolen teddy bear!

Ryan saw the news story about Mara Soriano from Vancouver, whose black backpack was stolen during a recent move that contained important documents, an iPad, and a Nintendo Switch, but more importantly, a teddy bear that features her mom's voice who died last June after losing her battle with cancer.

Mara explains in the article that her mom's voice changed and became softer after being admitted to hospice care, so the audio recording that was custom built into the Build-a-Bear was the last recording she had of her mom before that change, so this bear is beyond important to her. 

Ryan's fans have rallied behind this selfless gesture of his and has encouraged fans to offer to match or add to his donation, with others donating to her organization of choice — Sunnybrook Hospice, who took care of her mom during her final days. 

Here is to hoping that the efforts of Ryan's fans will help in the effort to find this bear!
