The Happiest Man In The World
This week I attended a book event at Arizona State University, sponsored by the ASU Alumni Association, featuring Dr. James W. Jackson, the founder of Project C.U.R.E. an organization that I am heavily involved in and support. Project C.U.R.E. was founded in 1987 to help meet the need for medical supplies, equipment and services around the world. Since its inception, Project C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief to more than 120 countries since its inception.
Dr. James Jackson has devoted the past twenty-three years of his life to traveling all over the world and “delivering health and hope” to the world’s most needy people. Thousands of people are alive today as a result of Project C.U.R.E.’s efforts, its volunteers and its founder, Dr. Jackson.
The Happiest Man In The World, Dr. Jackson’s new book provides unique and compelling insight into the life and legacy of a man who found true happiness in relinquishment and selfless service. He tells the story of the heartbreak he endured seeing children die of treatable illnesses simply because the doctors and nurses lacked the proper medical equipment and supplies. He also shares the joy expressed by doctors and nurses who saw containers full of donated medical supplies arrive just in time to save a life because of the efforts of Project C.U.R.E.
Dr. Jackson’s book is said to provide an honest assessment of the challenges presented to him for building a “Business of Goodness” and he challenges people everywhere to learn from his experiences and join him in becoming, “The Happiest Man in the World!”
During the event Dr. Jackson shared stories and images of a life refocused from “getting” to one of “giving”. I have been fortunate enough to see up close and personal the giving Dr. Jackson is referring to. This past summer I participated in Project C.U.R.E.’s medical mission in Moshi Tanzania where I helped deliver supplies to the Mwerni School for the Blind. While in Tanzania, I also climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro where I was doing research for the Summit Murder Mystery Series’ final book, Murder On Kilimanjaro! It was an amazing trip for many reasons!
