A petition has been set up in the hopes of having Keanu named TIME Magazine’s Person of 2019.

The accolade is awarded to people who’ve made an impact on the world, whether that be good or bad. It’s an interesting list which includes the likes of Joseph Stalin and Hitler, but okay then.

In a petition created by Keanu fan Jackson Beem, Beem writes: “Keanu is the most wholesome person alive, make him the person of the year! Keanu has secretly donated millions of his earnings to children’s hospitals and other charities, and has done amazing things for people in public while ask for nothing in return.”

At the time of writing, the petition is just shy of its goal of 50,000 supporters.

Memes aside, Reeves is well-deserving of all the attention he’s been receiving as of late.

According to a report from the Epoch Times, Reeves said in a 2009 interview: “I have a private foundation that’s been running for five or six years, and it helps aid a couple of children’s hospitals and cancer research. I don’t like to attach my name to it; I just let the foundation do what it does.”

The report also says that Reeves has donated to SCORE (Spinal Cord Opportunities for Rehabilitation Endowment), which is a charity that was founded after a UCLA hockey player’s spinal cord was damaged during a game.

Reeves has had a seriously impressive year so far. Not only did his recent action-and-dog-fuelled flick John Wick 3 impress at the box office, but he’s also lent his voice acting talents to the upcoming Toy Story 4.

It’s even emerged that Reeves actually been secretly donating to children’s hospitals which is basically the nicest thing a human can possibly do.

Give the guy something, please!
