In honor of the Christmas holiday, funnyman Ryan Reynolds dressed up in his lonely sweater with a big bow (designed by Tipsy Elves) and attempted to recreate the fun that the sweater had last year. However, this being 2020, it was easier said than done.
Every year we try to do something with my ugly not ugly Christmas sweater to support sick kids. Now this year it was particularly tough because visits have been very limited so we wanted to do something huge to show how much we love our kids.
Puppies. Ugly Sweaters. An NHL star who’ll eventually stab me in the face with a rusty skate. All for the love of @sickkids. Thank you @SamsungCanada for pitching in and huge thanks to @AM34. https://t.co/ygeVztNgfE pic.twitter.com/H3KVKBLUJm

SickKids is a non-profit organization that believes in “fighting for the health and well-being of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society”. Samsung Canada has also pledged to match all donations made by the end of December 24, 2020, up to $100,000.
The ugly/not ugly holiday sweater. It’s a Ryan Reynolds festive tradition. Along with being really generous to SickKids. This year, we’re wearing one, too, and it’s dazzling because it lights up the whole hospital and the spirit of every kid. Join Ryan in supporting SickKids. Donate today and your donation goes twice as far: Samsung Canada will generously match donations until December 24th, up to $100,000!
Toronto Mayor John Tory joined Reynolds in his virtual Ugly Sweater Party.
