As #IndigenousHistoryMonth comes to a close and 🇨🇦 Day arrives, we’re happy to help kick off this initiative for Indigenous Women in Community Leadership. Check out @coadystfx and the inspired work they do to build/support leaders from within communities across Canada and the globe. And a comically enormous tip of the hat to Dr. Marie Delorme for her guidance. Repost from @coadystfx - Joint Statement from Indigenous Women Leaders "With good spirits, we are grateful to work with Coady Institute, Ryan Reynolds ( @vancityreynolds ) and Blake Lively ( @blakelively ), and other partners. We have a shared vision for raising the profile of Indigenous women’s leadership and voices in Canada and globally. We know that magic happens when women lift each other up and share their Indigenous knowledge, perspectives, cultures, and traditions. The funding means continued learning opportunities, awareness building, and the chance to share our stories with others and the next generations. It is also a recognition of the good work that took place over the last decade with Indigenous women at Coady. We also recognize the positive social and economic impacts it can have on Indigenous women, families, communities and Nations, locally and globally."

I’m joining @TaikaWaititi in this reading series of James and the Giant Peach by @roald_dahl which, coincidentally, is a word for word copy of my memoir. (Lawyers talking now ) But wait, there’s more! This’ll raise money for @partnersinhealth to fight COVID-19 in some of the most vulnerable parts of the world. Go to youtube.com/roalddahl to see the full story and please, if you can, DONATE to @partnersinhealth – every donation is being matched by Roald Dahl and their partners. Starts tomorrow, May 25th, 10am PST/1PM EST #TaikaAndFriends
I salute these three incredible mothers for their wisdom, strength and ability to forever appear as though they’re standing at the doorway to their own surprise birthday party. #HappyMothersDay ❤️
We shot this last year as an attack ad on a *certain* coffee company... and it kinda evolved into a quarantine ad to help #TipYourBartenders . 🤷♀️🍸
a little while ago, we were shooting an epic first ad for @MintMobile . This is not that ad.
Today is @therock ’s birthday. There’ll be a lot of well wishes for him. He deserves it. This year, we fulfilled a lifelong dream: shooting exactly half a film called RED NOTICE before being promptly shut down. Had we not spent 90 percent of our time laughing, we might have finished it in time. Happy Birthday, Bubba. 📷: @hhgarcia41
Hugh and I have a temporary cease-fire on our feud for the @allinchallenge . So, I nominate legendary Astronaut, @ColChrisHadfield , Soccer Superstar, @Ashley_Lawrence10 and just to screw with him... @TheHughJackman . (WHAAT? A challenge inside a challenge. ) Donations benefit @nokidhungry , @mealsonwheelsamerica and #americasfoodfund which benefits @feedingamerica and @wckitchen
Hayley Wickenheiser is not only one of Canada’s greatest hockey players, she’s also a healthcare professional. Tomorrow, join Hayley and the @conquercovid19ca team from 9 to 5 for a vital PPE drive in Toronto. [XYZ Storage, 459 Eastern Ave.] ANYONE with N95, 8210 and 9210 masks to spare, bring them by. It’s not just hospital staff, but also cops, paramedics, grocery store workers, and a ton of others putting their asses on the line every day. Also, bring jokes. Those are in short supply too. If you can’t bring jokes, put them below in the comments. And thank you. 🇨🇦💪 @hchickwick Thanks @mutant101 for the art! #conquercovid19
This is what a damn miracle looks like. Do you need #PPE ? Do you have PPE to donate? Visit conquercovid19.ca. If you live in Ontario, join the drive this Saturday from 9-5 in Toronto: XYZ Storage (459 Eastern Avenue ) 🇨🇦🙌 @conquercovid19ca @etalkCTV @hchickwick Repost from @hchickwick - @vancityreynolds and I have teamed up with @conquercovid19ca to support healthcare workers! They will be hosting a PPE drive EVERY SATURDAY in Toronto from 9am-5pm at XYZ Storage (459 Eastern Ave ). Visit conquercovid19.ca if you need PPE or can donate PPE to our upcoming drive. #conquercovid19 #covid #ppe
Read Hayley’s message below. But first... People who help Hayley get this critical PPE gear will get something awesome from me. I’ll send you personalized videos. I’ll sign whatever you want. I’ll send Deadpool Bobbleheads and/or movie memorabilia. Maybe you’re a sick son of a bitch and want me to sign some Green Lantern shit. Well guess what? I’ll sign that too, you sick son of a bitch. I’ll raise your children as if they were my own - which trust me, you do NOT want. Any help will be rewarded generously. These are the days. These are the helpers. Let’s help the helpers. Read this ⬇️⬇️⬇️ and let’s go 🇨🇦. Thank you, - Ryan . . . . . . REPOST: from @hchickwick - Saw this ridiculous photo and laughed so hard. However, this is a very serious ask: After desperate pleas from my front line friends in the Toronto area, I have decided to put an ask out. These items are not for my use at all, they will help people to save lives. I’m not seeking cash, rather these items: 1350 N95 (68 boxes ) 13,500 surgical masks (135 boxes ) 13,500 gloves (135 boxes ) 1,350 chemo gowns If you are a business or person in Toronto or GTA area and you can help, I will personally pick up these items myself w/ proper distancing and PPE. I don’t have much to offer in return, maybe a signed jersey, a smile and guaranteed good Karma. If you can help email: robb @wickhockey .com. Thank you folks!
Good news! @Mintmobile is extending free unlimited data until May 14th. In slightly mixed news, a few Mint customers decided to leave me a voicemail after I left them one.
A message to Canadian bartenders in both English and French. (Although my French Canadian’s a bit rusty ) . . For the incredible bartenders in my homeland... we love and miss you. . . En Français: . Ces chaussettes noires font de mauvais condoms. . . Thank you!/j'aime les bananes! . . @_cpba_ @aviationgin #tipyourbartenders
Good news is still news. #Thankful 🙌
