Jett Foundation Launches #HugsforDuchenne Campaign


During the month of September Jett Foundation is once again collecting hugs for kids born with Duchenne muscular dystrophy!

 The mission of this campaign is simple: Keep them hugging. 

Jett Foundation's determination to keeping these kids walking, skipping, smiling, breathing, and hugging longer, is why for the second year in a row with the help of our creative friends and premier sponsor at, and our hugfunders Wahlburgers, Novara, Abby Park, and Station Eight, we will launch a social media campaign during the month of September to raise awareness and funds for this devastating illness. Every single penny will be used to prolong the abilities and lives of children with Duchenne, including but not limited to equipment, programs and advocacy efforts.

Snap a photo of yourself hugging someone you care about, go to, and upload your hug. Your “hug” will appear amongst everyone else participating in the campaign. Then post your hug on social media with the hashtag #HugsforDuchenne, and get your friends and family to participate.

To further your commitment to keeping our kids hugging, join our Hero Club by donating $100 with your hug. Members of our Hero Club will receive a shoutout in our #HugsforDuchenne weekly blog.

You have the ENTIRE month of September and we want you to participate! Our goal is to reach 15 countries, 50 states, and approve 50,000 hugs. So hug, snap, post, share, and donate away, we can't wait to see all the love and all the #HugsforDuchenne!
