He has been memorialized as being the only Hollywood star to have his own day in Japan - Tom Cruise Day – celebrated annually in that country on October 6. While continuing to explore new artistic challenges, Cruise has used his professional success as a vehicle for positive change, becoming an international advocate, activist and philanthropist in the fields of health and education.
