BAND OF BROTHERS stars to jump out of a plane in aid of Normandy Memorial

The cast of HBO's Band Of Brothers are reuniting for a star studded joint event later this year in aid of the Richard Winters Leadership Project, an organization run by Tim Gray Media. Our mission is to raise funds required to erect a monument in Normandy in honour of the late Major Winters and other heroes. The project needs $100K to complete the work.

Cast members from the HBO miniseries Band Of Brothers will be jumping from a MOVING PLANE. Some of the guys will be jumping in LA and the others will be jumping in the UK

WWII Foundation

James Madio is a Board Member on the WWII Foundation.

The WWII Foundation's sole mission is preserving the oral histories of the veterans and survivors of World War II through documentary films that air both domestically in the United States and internationally, as well as creating ways in which to honor the sacrifices of the WWII generation through other visual and artistic means.

Each day 1,000 veterans of the war pass on, taking with them incredible stories of the time period 1939-1945. The goal of our foundation is to preserve the individual experiences of those who witnessed the most devastating conflict known to man and to hopefully, pass on the lessons learned from World War II to a new generation. We also seek, through educational outreach, to honor those who showed great examples of dedication, sacrifice and courage during one of the most horrific time periods in history.

Villalobos Rescue Center

James Madio is an active supporter of Villalobos Rescue Center.

Villalobos Rescue Center is a rescue, rehabilitation and placement facility for abused and abandoned Pit Bulls. VRC works ceaselessly to give Pit Bulls another chance in life. Each and EVERY dog taken in, gets spayed or neutered, and given any medical treatment necessary. We work patiently to reacclimatize fearful dogs to the loving care of a human, so that they may eventually be adopted. In some cases, these dogs have never had a kind word or touch, and it is a slow process. After determining temperaments and compatibility factors, we begin that long search for the perfect home.
