The Class of 2020 Has A Friend In Tom Hanks As Actor Hands Out Diplomas on Twitter
Here at MickeyBlog HQ, Tom Hanks has been a constant source of inspiration during the COVID-19 crisis. Months ago, he was among the first Hollywood celebrities to contract the virus and during his quarantine in Australia took to Twitter almost daily to give us words of encouragement and support throughout his own illness.
Once back in the states, Hanks proudly donated plasma in the fight of COVID-19 having tested positive for the antibodies. This donation could be life-saving and was used to assist medical professionals in offering plasma therapy to victims.
Then there was the story about how Hanks gifted a vintage Corona typewriter to a boy in Australia who reached out to Hanks to say that he was being bullied because of his name.
Today, we have yet another moving post proving that we ALL have a friend in Tom Hanks during COVID -19, especially the Class of 2020. Hanks took to Twitter over the weekend with a special diploma he created for graduates and its simply charming.
Let’s take a look:
To all the Grads of 2020, you Chosen Ones! Print this up on a sheepskin! Hanx pic.twitter.com/4llw7fPtxB

We are absolutely smitten with this touching tribute to all of those graduating during these unprecedented circumstances. Especially the line “Distinct Labors in the Face of the Great Pandemic.” As you can see from the image above, the diploma is also signed by Hanks and Albert Einstein.
It is very sweet and touching especially to a graduating class that has seen traditional rituals like High School proms and graduation ceremonies come to a halt in attempts to combat the spread of COVID -19.
Hanks jokes that you can print this out on sheepskin however, we wouldn’t be suprised if this does get printed out on the home computer for graduates to proudly display as a testament to what a year it has been!
