Can you tell me more about Good Deeds Buffalo?

Good Deeds Buffalo was the precursor to Good Deeds America. It was a television show hosted by Jordan James that highlighted positive stories, good deeds, and inspiring individuals within the Buffalo, New York community. The show aimed to showcase the positive aspects of the region, featuring uplifting narratives, community service initiatives, and acts of kindness. Good Deeds Buffalo gained national recognition for its commitment to spreading positivity and was a platform for promoting goodwill in the local community. It even attracted celebrities like Drew Barrymore in 2022, as Jordan was a guest on the Nationally syndicated "The Drew Barrymore Show."

What inspired you to start the fundraising campaign?

After parting ways with our production partner, 716Live, we decided to bring the production of our show in-house due to changes in their business dynamics. However, we faced a significant challenge in terms of equipment. Although our team is well-qualified to operate it, our presenting sponsor's monthly pledge falls short of covering the required amount.

After completing "Good Deeds Buffalo," I committed to returning to TV under one condition: resolving major stressors related to securing a production facility or sponsor. These aspects are often the most challenging in any production, especially for a community-impact show like ours. To overcome this hurdle, I believed it was worth seeking support from the community to cover the substantial new upfront costs.

My friend Erik Huberman, a successful figure in the marketing world, suggested the idea of starting a Kickstarter campaign. Although we didn't meet our goal with that platform, supporters urged us to start another fundraising campaign. Considering his advice and input from others, I recognized the show's potential impact and decided to act. While acknowledging the larger issues at play, sometimes we can only influence so much individually. This show, however, has the potential to make a difference on a larger scale, as demonstrated by the impact of "Good Deeds Buffalo" through the 29 episodes we filmed.
