Deborah Kobylt LIVE: JD Slajchert, author, “Darling, You’re Not Alone.”

This next story is what life, and the holidays, are all about. Meet JD Slajchert, former college athlete and author, “Darling, You’re Not Alone.” The book is based on JD’s life story about a young boy who came to see all of JD’s college basketball games, until one day, the boy got very sick.

What happens after the boy’s illness forever changed JD’s purpose in life, and he writes about it. In fact, the NY Times calls his book, “A Must Read That Will Change Your Life.” We talk with JD about this, and also how one incident in a person’s life can truly change one’s entire direction in life.

Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Jake and Angela McFarland

Meet Jake and Angela McFarland, proprietors of Coffee Closet With Barista Jake, and this is NOT your ordinary coffee shop. Jake, who is autistic, opened a coffee cart in his dad’s record store, and the community in Norristown, PA, went bonkers for it.

Fast forward, he and his mom now have their own shop, and employ people with special needs, giving them life-long job and social skills that will serve them long after they leave the coffee shop.

These are two extraordinary people who have given back so much to the community and beyond, and it’s a terrific way to get into the giving spirit for the holidays. Please join me, and invite your friends to, on all video and audio platforms of #DeborahKobyltLIVE. Thanks for tuning in!
