What is a Grin Kid? you ask. ACE & TJ’s Grin Kids is a non-profit 501c3 charity, created by morning show personalities ACE & TJ in Charlotte, North Carolina in January of 2000. They take terminally ill and chronically handicapped, ages five to twelve, in their listening area, to Disney World. They also take the families of these kids. For the duration of the trip the parents get to take it easy, as well.
For the record I have nothing to do with Grin Kids or Ace&TJ, I am just a fan of both the charity and the show.
I would also like to extend my condolences to the Harke family on the death of Grin Kid Jasper Harke. Jasper was an original Grin Kid on the first trip. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
