Back at the end of 2018, I told you guys about this heartfelt organization called Jar Of Hope that is being run by James and Karen Raffone.

Well here is a refresher and be warned, the story is going to pluck at your heart strings. On September 13th 2013, James and Karen received the awful news that their son Jamesy was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

What is even worse is that they were told by multiple professionals that there is no cure for this disease.

"Go home and love your son -- there is nothing we can do," was the prognosis given by multiple doctors.

Well James and Karen did not accept being told that there is nothing to do to help their son and as a result, Jar Of Hope was born.

Since the organization's birth, Jim has hosted and participated in various fundraisers including The New York City Marathon, their Annual Gala, and the Grand to Grand which involves running 170 miles across a desert in Nevada over 7 days  with all of the money going towards the research that will ultimately find a cure for Duchenne. (Because believe me when I say that James won't stop until that happens)

Well James' birthday is coming up on January 10th and for his birthday, all he wants is for people to donate whatever they can afford to help the cause.

What he is promoting on Facebook is for his birthday, instead of buying him a shot of Johnny Walker Black, simply give $10.00 -- the equivalent cost -- to the Jar Of Hope.

Once you donate, simply share his Facebook Post and ask your friends to donate $1.00 to show their support.

I have worked with James and what this man has accomplished is absolutely amazing. If you don't believe me, take a look at his website or check out the video below where James and I reveal an update about the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy medical research!

So let's get behind James and help him to save his son, Jamesy, as well as the 300,000 boys affected by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy worldwide.
