Kidd's Kids Day

I've decided to write today's post about something that is near and dear to my heart.  It felt really odd adding it to my regular Random Friday list, so I decided to not do Random Friday today.  It will be back next week.

If you live in the DFW area, today has been declared Kidd's Kids day.  If you are not familiar, this is in honor of Kidd Kraddick, the host of Kidd Kraddick in the Morning.  He passed away on Saturday. A lot of people in the listening area took his passing very hard.  It's hard not to.  He hosted the show for over 20 years, which means a lot of local people grew up listening to him.  Kidd's Kids day will be a day dedicated to raising money for Kidd Kraddick's charity, Kidd's Kids.  Kidd worked hard every year raising money for this event.  Each year a group of terminal and chronically ill children receive an all expenses paid trip (with their families) to Disney World.  The charity pays for the entire trip.  That may seem very frivolous, a trip to Disney World. Why wouldn't they just help pay medical bills?  Kidd points out every year that this is a trip where they get to act like a child that is not sick.  They get to not focus on their illness.  They get to have fun.  Read more about Kidd's Kids Day HERE.
