Meet Donald, who is also known as Boone and has been homeless on and off for the past seven years. Although the video may not show it he can play more than just the piano. “I went into the Marine Corps, played clarinet, went all over the world.
Who would of thought right?!? Well...this story has a happy ending thanks to this video gone viral with over 7 million views. The power of social media helped this man clean up.
A fundraising page was has been set up for Donald following the video and it has already raised more than $35,000 for his future already. Spring Arbor University is also offering him a full scholarship to help him finish his degree in music theory.
If that wasn't enough, 'Inside Edition' also gave Donald a full makeover including new clothes and his first haircut and shave in 18 months.
I gotta say I love stories like this yet I'm saddened we don't hear more of em'. How many times have you walked by a homeless person and ignored him or her? It happens. We get caught up in a busy lifestyle and our minds are too busy for anything else. Next time....give that person a hand. Extra change or even a smile. That's someones son, dad or uncle.
