At least the kids won't have to worry about freezing to death this winter. Kudos to him and Canada Goose for stepping up to the plate.

Ryan Reynolds partners with Canadian parka brand to warm Nunavut students.

TORONTO -- With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting shipments to Canada’s northern communities, superstar Ryan Reynolds has teamed up with one of the country’s most well-known parka brands to provide warm clothing to hundreds of students in Nunavut this winter.

On Tuesday, Canada Goose announced it would donate its famed parkas along with Baffin footwear to outfit more than 300 students who are attending Inuujaq School in Arctic Bay, Nunavut.

In a statement, Reynolds said it had come to his attention that students at the school, which is located above the Arctic Circle on Baffin Island, didn’t have appropriate winter clothing.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

In the comments below the article above someone called these rescuers Earth Angels. What a terrific name for those who go out of their way to assist wildlife in trouble.

Terrariums! This concept is a feel-good story as far as I'm concerned. Helps to quickly bring back perspective on the perfect balance in nature, which is a perspective that nobody should lose sight of.
