Established in 2000, Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing a magical, all-expense paid, 5-day experience at Walt Disney World for children between the ages of 5-12 who are terminally ill or chronically disabled and their immediate family.
The charity was designed to enhance the lives of terminally ill and chronically disabled children between the ages of 5 through 12 and live within Ace & TJ’s radio listening area. Our 501(c)(3) charity takes the children & their entire family on a once in a life time trip to Disney World. Over the years we have taken over 400 children and their families on a 5 day all-expense paid vacation including air travel, ground transportation, Disney Park Hopper passes, meals, hotel rooms at a Disney Resort, Meet & Greet with some of the famous Disney Characters and Disney Dollars for souvenirs. Grin Kids is funded exclusively by listener donations, fundraising events and corporate donations. Every dollar helps in making this magical vacation possible for children who have only dreamed of a vacation to the Happiest Place On Earth!. The name of the organization comes from Ace & TJ’s motto on their morning show, "You Grin, You’re In!"
