College Student Thanks Tom Hanks For Returning Her Lost ID
After a Fordham University senior named Lauren lost her student ID while running in Central Park, Tom Hanks Tweeted: “Lauren! I found your Student ID in the park. If you still need it, my office will get it to you. Hanx.”
The story made headlines, and now Lauren is thanking the Oscar winner on Dr. Phil after opening a letter from Hanks containing her ID. (Though she admits she had already gotten a new one.)
"That was definitely a shock, a really pleasant surprise," she says about getting a hand-written note from Hanks with his signature. "It's nice that somebody's there looking out and giving stuff back."
She jokes, "I think myself and the rest of Fordham University plans on just throwing their IDs all over the place!"
