The Buffalo community can nominate someone whom they feel should be honored for their Good Deed this person is kind, loving, and puts everyone around them first.
Then join Jordan James once a week as he interviews change-makers in Western New York for their Good Deed(s).
The idea of Good Deeds Buffalo was started after Jordan lost his mother Margie suddenly to a heart attack in 2019. Jordan made the selfless decision to donate her organs and because of that, her donation helped two people see again and countless burn victims. Jordan and his family received a very special thank you card from one of the families who was a recipient of the donation and the happiness that Jordan felt knowing that his mother made a difference in someone’s life even after her death helped him with his grief.
“I just knew that my mother who dedicated her life to serving the community at places like “The Salvation Army” in North Tonawanda for several years, but most importantly her four boys. Would give the gift of life, when the time came,” said Jordan.
Prior to Margie’s passing, Jordan and his mother discussed the creation of a talk show. one that focused on showcasing the good deeds of others. Jordan decided to turn his heartache into something positive in honor of his mother and “Good Deeds Buffalo” was born. Being a gay man and experiencing bullying in his younger years, Jordan knows the importance of showing kindness and compassion to others. He also created his own nonprofit organization Blood is Blood, which encourages the FDA to seek and implement blood donation policies that are nondiscriminatory towards gay and bisexual men after being turned away to donate blood himself.
After much-needed, continuous healing and year-long quarantine in May of 2021, Jordan James brings that same idea to TV, YouTube, and Facebook, sponsorship by Americorps Seniors, Retired & Senior Volunteer Program Volunteer Center at HANCI, WBBZ.TV and other Buffalo Community members and businesses.

25 years old and grew up in North Tonawanda, NY a suburb of Buffalo, NY.
At a young age, Jordan was considered selfless,
In 2015 Jordan founded a non-profit organization named "Blood is Blood" dedicated to encouraging the FDA to seek and implement blood donation policies that are nondiscriminatory towards gay & bi-sexual men, after he was turned away himself for being gay ultimately encouraging the FDA to change their once INDEFINFITE DEFERRAL to a 12-MONTH Deferral, CURRENTLY a 3-MONTH DEFERRAL.
Jordan has held 5 Blood is Blood Gay Alliance Blood Drives in Buffalo, NY, and has been even invited to Hampton Roads, Virginia for 2 consecutive blood drives since 2015 resulting in saving well over 680 lives.
because Jordan went as far as to remain celibate for a whole year from 2017-2018 just so he could donate blood and raise awareness against the FDA's arbitrary policies.
During quarantine, Jordan started a Tiktok Account to help other LGBTQIA+ find a safe space to have fun and be themselves.
In February 2021 Jordan James launched Safe Space by BloodisBlood.org to connect the LGBTQIA+ Community with resources and information while creating a fun inviting community.
