******************************************************************

Jillian Kirby, Jack’s grandaughter, founded KIRBY4HEROES to honor the legacy of Jack “King” Kirby in a manner that he would have been proud of. This was also a way for Jillian to meaningfully connect with her grandfather, who died the year before she was born.
We agree with Jillian that her grandfather would have been among the first to champion this cause, because a charity that helps others in the comic book community and gives aid to those in need exemplifies the devotion he always had for his fellow man.
