Chris Pratt and Ryan Reynolds Continue to Show Us They're a Couple Real Life Superheroes

Honestly torn over who we love more at this point...Ryan Reynolds or Chris Pratt. Both of these guys are real life superheroes, and continue to display an incredible ability to balance the demands of being A-list celebrities, with touching the lives of fans who fell upon hard times, and bad luck. Yesterday we ran a post on Ryan Reynolds who shared a heartwarming tribute to his 14 year old fan (and friend) that'd lost his battle with cancer; and today we've got Star Lord. Love these guys!

Something magical happens when this group of crochet enthusiasts meet to make dreams come true.

Former oncology nurse and mom Holly Christensen has started a group called The Magic Yarn Project, a clan of dedicated crocheters that meet to make Disney princess wigs for children with cancer.

A daughter of one of Christensen's friends was diagnosed with lymphoma so she decided to make a Rapunzel yarn wig. Here's what she told Babble:

"I knew she would be going through a difficult time, and that no one would be able to take her suffering away. I also knew that losing her long, curly blonde hair at not even 3 years old would be difficult for her, so I figured that the yarn wig could help bring a little magic and fun to a difficult time in her life."

Designs include princess Elsa and Anna from Frozen and princess Jasmine from Aladdin.

The group has a GoFundMe account set up to help fund even more wigs for children around the world battling cancer.
