Didn’t get to go to prom this year? John Krasinski, star of The Office and Jack Ryan, has offered a sweet alternative to students that missed out due to COVID-19. Krasinski just announced that he will be hosting a virtual prom on his Some Good News YouTube Channel.
Krasinski shared a TikTok on all of his social media channels to share the news. “That’s right class of 2020,” Krasinski posted to Instagram. “I’m DJing your prom with some friends this Friday 8EST/5PST! Click link in bio for invitation! See you then!”
Krasinski’s “Some Good News” YouTube channel was inspired after he went online and asked his twitter followers for some good news stories. After they “did not disappoint” Krasinski was finally motivated to create the channel.
The platform has been used to perform incredible acts of kindness—something we all need in our lives right now.
After a young Broadway fan was unable to attend Hamilton for her birthday, Krasinski not only introduced her to the cast, but he gifted her and her mom with tickets to the show for a later date. The entire cast performed a song from the play over Zoom for the young girl.
That’s not all he did. He introduced a Boston hospital’s COVID-19 unit to baseball legend, David Ortiz, who gave them all Red Sox tickets for LIFE. Plus, he had the healthcare team escorted to Fenway park, where they ran the bases and received a touching video on the Jumbotron from the city of Boston.
You can visit the SomeGoodNews Youtube page to set a reminder for Friday night’s prom. If Krasinki’s generosity so far is any indicator, there are sure to be some big surprises in store! While we all might not have as many followers or connections as Krasinki, it is nice to be reminded that kindness is contagious and spreading positivity during these times is important.
