At Southwest, we always jump at the opportunity to be part of a good cause, and there is nothing better than sending kids to Disney World--the Happiest Place on Earth! For the fourth consecutive year, Southwest Airlines has partnered with radio deejay Kidd Kraddick’s charity, Kidd’s Kids, by loaning him one of our Southwest jets to send more than 50 deserving families to Disney World in Orlando for a fantastic four-day adventure.
The trip allows children with special medical needs to take a break from their daily stresses and enjoy a family getaway. The charter flight departed Dallas at noon yesterday on a special plane donning the Kidd’s Kids decal. Of course, every event at Southwest is a cause for celebration, so we made sure they started their trip off right by throwing a “Southwest style” party that included a visit from the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, plenty of food, games, and souvenir photo buttons. After boarding the plane, Employees gave our little heroes a special Southwest send-off with waves and cheers as they departed on the trip of a lifetime.
We are so thankful and honored that the Kidd Kraddick Morning show allows us to be a part of this annual event, and a special "thank you" to our Flight Crew who donated their time as well.
