[asset|aid=903|format=image|formatter=asset|title=Kidds02.jpg|width=196|height=300|resizable=true|align=right]This episode of Red Belly Radio is about kids. Not just any kids, but some very special ones. Nationally syndicated, Dallas-based radio show, Kidd Kraddick in the Morning, raises funds every year to send between 40 and 50 families with special needs kids to the Disney parks in Orlando Florida. Several companies help sponsor the trip, but Southwest Airlines helps out in a number of ways:  hosting a phone bank; providing volunteers to take donations from Kidd Kraddick listeners; and, providing an aircraft and crew to fly these deserving families to Florida.

It is a very big deal for the families and everyone who has the opportunity to participate.  In fact, this trip has become a very sought after “assignment” for many of our Flight Attendants, and we always have many more Employee volunteers than there are spots on the plane. On this episode of Red Belly Radio, you will hear from several of the Flight Attendants who were selected to assist in with this year’s trip, Cinda from the medical staff, one of the parents, and more.
