Ringo does good deeds. Like this is amazing that he did this. I would love to meet him too but this kid totally deserves it more than me.

I call for a Ringo Starr party and sainthood.

That warmed my heart, reading that. How sweet of RINGO to do that! He is just an incredibly awesome person!

That's so sweet of him. Ringo is such a great guy. Makes me like him even more.

The kid was just 17... and you know what I mean! 😀 

I mean, come on. Someone had to say it. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

An old thread but a really heartwarming story involving Ringo so deserves to be revived.

Tears in my eyes (I'm a cry baby).  Ringo does love kids though.  The man who ranks pretty high on my list of "good folk" just stepped up another 3 rungs or so :)

Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes

Here's what Ringo had to say about the Lotus Foundation during a recent interview.

There will be a sale of your artwork in Boston in the days leading up to your performance at the Wang Theatre there. In December, you're auctioning off hundreds of Beatles-related items. The proceeds from both benefit the Lotus Foundation. For those unfamiliar with the foundation, what is its purpose?

It is a charity that Barbara and I started 10 years ago. We kept it sort of wide open. We did not have a narrow field where we only help this or that. We have helped from Haiti to the David Lynch Foundation to something in our local village in England. It helps people find a rest from violence. It helps addictive personalities. It helps children. The other thing we have found is if we help you, we can nominate to help you for three years so you don't have to scramble when the lease is up on the building you are working out of. There's MusicCares and so many others that we have helped along the way. We did one in England to help the Variety Club charity give handicapped children a holiday. We're pretty well spread out. We are not just dialing in on one thing.

If Ringo Starr Doing Things was the name of a show on TV, I'd watch it...

Episode 1: 'Ringo brings in the mail and puts out the cat'
Episode 2: 'Ringo clips his toenails'

...and like that.

From the article

Ringo Starr...[is] among the celebrities who are participating in a new social media campaign launched by pop star Richard Marx’s in honor of Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month.

Marx’s “Take a Breath for CF” campaign, which officially kicks off today, May 27, encourages social media users to post videos of themselves taking a breath in and a breath out and saying, “I’m taking a breath for CF.” It’s an effort to raise awareness of the disease and collect donations to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

In Ringo’s video, the former Beatles drummer identifies himself, takes a breath and says the aforementioned phrase, then adds his own famous catchphrase, “Peace and love.”
