It doesn’t take much to be kind in this world, and it is great when actors such as John Stamos take it upon themselves to do a good deed for someone. At the recent 4 July celebration in Washington DC, Stamos donated a custom-designed red, white and blue drum set to a retired Marine. What a kind gesture!
The recipient was Marine Corps Master Sergeant Mike Schneider who had suffered two traumatic brain injuries while serving in the mid-2000s. Due to his injuries, Schneider engaged in a music therapy program to help him overcome his issues. But he is not the only musical one in the family.
Schneider also has a young son named Owen who wanted nothing more to play the drums. But unfortunately, young Owen had been diagnosed with neurofibromatosis which meant that he would, in all likelihood, never be able to coordinate such an instrument. Owen soon proved the doctors wrong and earned a place in his school band. Now with his very own drum kit donated by Stamos, he can build on both his physical and musical skills.
This story makes this gift of giving even more precious.
The Political Insider reports:
Actor John Stamos, performing at an Independence Day celebration in Washington, D.C., donated a drum set he “always dreamed of having as a kid” to a retired Marine and his family.
The custom drum kit, made by Ludwig, was decked out in ‘sparkly’ red, white, and blue colors.
