Jennifer Hudson and the Julian D. King Gift Foundation provide stability, support and positive experiences for children
of all backgrounds.

The Julian D. King Foundation holds several events throughout the year to assist and aid those in need.

The Foundation was established to provide stability, support and positive experiences for children of all backgrounds to help enable them to grow to be productive, confident and happy adults.

Jennifer Hudson and her sister, Julia, founded Hatch Day in honor of their slain nephew, Julian King. “He always wanted to hatch things,” Hudson says. “He got it from a cartoon. It was something I wanted, a hatch day. He would say, ‘Today is my hatch day.’ This is our way of giving our hatch day and being able to help other kids through his memory.”

The organization collects and distributes school supplies and Christmas presents.
