Since 2006, Southwest has partnered with Kidd’s Kids to help create magical memories for children who are affected by life-altering conditions by sending them on a trip with their families to the Happiest Place on Earth in Orlando, Florida. Through this trip, these families spend time together and create memories they will always cherish, connect with other families facing medical hardships, and enjoy a memorable experience together.
A child selected to go on the Kidd’s Kids trip boards a Southwest Airlines charter aircraft.Southwest provides the charter aircraft for the families to travel to and from Orlando, and the Employees who crew the flight volunteer their time. For those families who live outside of North Texas, Southwest provides complimentary travel from their home airport to Orlando. Kidd’s Kids covers all expenses, including hotel, park passes, meals, transportation, spending money, and souvenirs. Support comes from individual contributions made by listeners of the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show, corporate donations, special event fundraisers and generous in-kind donations.
