United States Army veteran Jim Wolf has struggled with poverty, homelessness, and alcoholism in the decades since returning home from serving his country.

In September, he volunteered to go through a physical transformation — on camera — to help promote a fundraiser for Dégagé Ministries, a non-profit organization that offers help to the disadvantaged members of its community, including struggling veterans. The swift change in fortune the physical transformation has stimulated — Jim has already secured housing and has begun attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings — is extremely touching, as is the resulting video:
