Ryan Reynolds is known for his acts of kindness. The actor frequently volunteers for charity work and urges people to do the same. This time the American-Canadian actor has won the hearts of the Welsh community with a heart-warming gesture. Although the Welsh community represents a different culture than Reynolds’ community, the actor understood the value of kindness.
Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds became a part of the Welsh community by buying the Wrexham Association Football Club in February 2021. Since then, the owners have taken the team to a new level. They documented the journey of the players and the club in their Welcome to Wrexham. While winning the hearts of the players as an owner of the club, the actor also won the hearts of the people of the Welsh community.
Ryan Reynolds wins hearts all over again
Kayleigh Barton, the mother of a young player at FC United of Wrexham Futsal, created a fundraising page. She said her son, Keegen, and his teammates had a new kit designed and requested people to help this under-12 team to have their kit. Reynolds, being a nice Canadian, made a £1,600 donation to the Welsh team.
We are all in shock !!
Yesterday 1 of our U12's parents created a donations page to help our little #futsal side raise funds for a Parish Church new kit & less than 24 hours @VancityReynolds saves the day with a truly surprising donation. Thank you so much Ryan 🥰❤️#WrexhamAFC pic.twitter.com/9ZpMkdEMmJ

As reported by Metro, GoFundMe confirmed the Deadpool actor has made two separate donations of £1000 and £600. The mother was overjoyed to see the donations from the actor and became emotional. The kids also felt delirious as now they could get their kit. They are excited to get it and share the pictures with the Free Guy actor soon. Not only the kids, but the entire community was happy to see such a generous donation from a well-known actor. This is how they expressed their joy.
Literally can't believe it. I can't thank @VancityReynolds enough. Our Under 12's parents are all moved to positive tears. We can't wait to tell the boys Deadpool has saved the day. Thank you Ryan ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
