The holiday season might have ended by now for most of us, but it appears to not entirely be over just yet for Ryan Reynolds, based on his recent share with his 41 million Instagram followers, as he decided to spread a little more holiday cheer.

The Canadian-born actor, 45, posted a hilarious photo of himself on Instagram yesterday rocking a snazzy holiday sweater, which he affectionately referred to as a “butt ugly sweater.”

The eye-offending garment was dressed up to look like a Christmas present, decked out with a little gold bow and everything.

The sweater was a way to raise money for an extremely good cause, raising over $850,000 for the SickKids Foundation, a hospital in Toronto that has been dedicated to helping sick children and their families since 1875.

Wrapping up the year on a good note

In the photo, which the SickKids Foundation had shared yesterday on their own Instagram account, the Wolverine actor is happily gazing out of a window with a thoughtful look on his face and his hands on his hips.

“Thank you for helping this butt-ugly sweater raise over $850,000 for Sick Kids Foundation,” he joked to his fans.

“Turning something ugly into something beautiful is what @sickkids does every day,” Ryan added in his heartfelt caption.

The total amount of money raised for the children’s hospital in the month of December included a $100,000 match from Samsung Canada. Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs auctioned off autographed hockey jerseys from team players to help the cause.
