Mara Soriano is a woman from Vancouver, Canada, that was recently moving from one apartment to another when she left her bags unattended for one moment, and one item was snagged away immediately. The thing is, though, that the bag had a particularly priceless item inside: a teddy bear with her late mom’s voice recording on it. Mara was so desperate that she issued a plea online for people to help her find her stolen teddy bear, and the search began!
However, what she didn’t expect was one of the biggest Hollywood stars to stand on her side and help her find her teddy bear: Ryan Reynolds.
The Deadpool actor promised “$5,000 to anyone who returns the teddy bear to Mara. Zero questions asked”.
Three days later, the actor brought up the news that the teddy bear has been found.
Mara told Bored Panda that her teddy bear got stolen while she and her fiance were moving into a new apartment. As soon as Ryan Reynolds tweeted out about the bear, the search was on, and everyone started looking for the stuffed animal.
As it turns out, the bear was a memento to Mara’s mother, who gave it to her before she passed after a 9-year-long battle with cancer, and the bear had an inbuilt voice recording of her mother, telling her daughter that she loves her and she will always be with her.
And then the good news came!
