From People Magazine:
For more than 15 years, Stamos has been making visits to Give Kids the World village, a 79-acre nonprofit resort in central Florida that provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
“The one thing about John is that it’s never about him; it’s always about the kids,” the organization’s president and CEO, Pamela Landwirth, tells PEOPLE. “It’s so cute, one of the first few times he came he said, ‘Do you think people will actually recognize me?’ He was just very humble and unassuming. That’s just his style with the kids. He loves making them smile, he loves making them feel good. He loves talking about the things that matter to them and giving them a shot of hope and spirit in their battle against their illness.”
“It’s just very natural. He’s very authentic,” she adds of Stamos, 52. “It’s not like he’s looking at his watch like, how much longer do I have to do this? He’s like, I’ll stay as long as the kids are still interested in having their picture taken with me, or the moms or the dads or the siblings. It’s refreshing to see that kind of demeanor coming from someone who is such a celebrity.”
John Stamos, best known as Uncle Jesse on Full House traveled to the Giving Kids The World village to brighten up children’s lives and he did it so effortlessly. I can imagine women and girls screaming for him. I wish I were there watching the kids with disabilities and mother and sisters screaming and fainting for this great act of kindness.
One way you could probably associate this visit was as if THE BEATLES paid a visit!
