Hanks for that, Tom!

First, let me paint you a picture.


You’re walking down the street when you spot someone’s ID card on the floor. What do you do? Leave it there? Or try and enlist the power of social media to return the lost property to its rightful owner?

Castaway star Tom, did the latter.


After finding a girl called Lauren’s Fordham University ID card on Tuesday, Tom took to Twitter and told his 10.4 million followers: “Lauren! I found your Student ID in the park. If you still need it my office will get it to you. Hanx.”


Check out his Tweet here:




Isn’t it refreshing to hear stories like this? Famous finder or not, it always warms your cockles to hear of people doing a good deed – no matter how big or small.


If you read the link, you’ll also hear how one international football sensation took a game of ‘lost and found’ to another level – it’s another great story to brighten your day!


Have you ever gone above and beyond for a stranger? Or has someone done that for you?

I’d love to hear all about it!


In the spirit of Tom Hanks, I’m making it my mission this week to do something nice for someone else. Whether it’s giving up my seat on the train, chasing after someone who left their change behind or just holding the door open for them.


It’s nice to be nice.


Have a great day!
