Participating in the Kindness Project

We invite you to help us honor our son, Jackson Antonio Clark. The idea is to spread Jackson’s love and kindness all over and, in doing so, keep his memory alive. We've distributed kindness cards, meant to accompany your acts of kindness, so that the recipients of these kindness acts can know about the sweet boy who inspired them. (If you need some cards, just ask! You can also print them at home with this PDF.)

Here’s an example photo and description:
We sent this ‘Kindness’ glassybaby candle votive to Laura Crandall, the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood) Foundation, who lost her first daughter Maria to SUDC at 15 months-old twenty years ago.
