Don’t you love to see people paying it forward?
Well the Blue Man Group did just that after learning that a young fan of theirs had asked for a very special gift. 12-year-old Wyatt Falardeau is a Florida boy with autism who had his right arm amputated when he was only one week old.
Recently, Wyatt requested a Blue Man-themed robotic arm for his prosthetic, but when the Group found out, they decided to give him so much more.
Under the guise of having won a backstage tour, Wyatt is taken around the venue on a tour that includes playing with the controls and even eating some Cap’n Crunch. When he is brought onto the stage, he is surprised by none other than the Blue Man Group, to which he reacts ecstatically.
Then, the Blue Men wheel out a large box that contains Wyatt’s new personalized robotic arm, appropriately painted bright blue with some cool paint splatter effects. After 12 years, Wyatt finally got his second arm.
The gift was made possible by Limbitless Solutions, the same company that helped Robert Downey, Jr. gift an Iron Man-themed arm to another young boy. Wyatt’s new arm was inexpensively 3D-printed, but his new limb, along with the experience of getting it, is priceless.
Find out how the Blue Man Group’s random act of kindness just changed this boy’s life forever.
