Acts of Simple Kindness, Inc. (ASK) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization that provides financial grants to children, through the age of 18, to continue or pursue extracurricular activities in the areas of education, sports, music and the arts following the death of a parent. The loss of a spouse and parent is difficult enough without worrying about how to afford the programs that will bring their grieving children happiness, provide stability and often fulfill a wish of a parent no longer here to grant the wish themselves.  Acts of Simple Kindness, Inc. was created so that this very important and overlooked need would be provided for. Children who have lost a parent did not ask for their lives to be so drastically changed.
