There are four ways to donate on Friday: Stop by any participating DFW Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers locations, donate online at 1061kissfm.com, text “KIDD” to 52000 to automatically donate $10, or call 214-866-8106 to donate via phone
Kidd Kraddick, a Dallas radio staple since 1984 and host of “Kidd Kraddick in the Morning,” is best known for entertaining thousands of listeners on air across the country each morning. Off air, Kidd was dedicated to helping those around him through his words, actions, and his charity, Kidd’s Kids.
“Kidd devoted his life to making people smile every morning, and for 21 years his foundation has been dedicated to bringing joy to thousands of chronically and terminally ill children,” says Kelly Kibler, Senior Vice President of Operations for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. “Kidd died doing what he loved, and his final day was spent selflessly focused on those special children that meant the world to him.”
In addition to taking donations, the cities of Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Allen, Flower Mound, Euless, Bedford, Grapevine, North Richland Hills, Addison, Coppell, Denton, Mansfield, Southlake, Plano, Frisco, Grand Prairie, McKinney, Carrollton, Weatherford, Richardson, Irving, Garland, and Mesquite have made official proclamations to designate Friday, August 2, 2013 as Kidd Kraddick Kidd’s Kids Day.
The family is planning a public memorial service and will announce details in the upcoming days.
