Keep Kidd Kraddick’s Legacy Alive This Weekend with “Do It for Kidd”
July 27 will mark one year since we lost radio legend, Kidd Kraddick. He was known for his overwhelming generosity and kindness. Here's how you can keep his legacy alive.
Kidd Kraddick believed strongly in "Paying It Forward." In his final live radio broadcast, Kraddick read an email from a listener thanking co-host J-Si for helping her purchase groceries for her family. He told J-Si that helping this stranger was "the best investment you've ever made."
Kraddick was known for thinking bigger of other people than he thought of himself.
Now it's time to "Do It for Kidd." This weekend, July 25-27, you can "Pay It Forward" too. In honor of Kidd on the anniversary of his untimely passing, the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show is asking Kidd Nation to continue his legacy of giving, through performing random acts of kindness.
As Kellie Rasberry puts it:
"Do It for Kidd can be as simple as buying a cup of coffee for the person behind you in line, checking on an elderly person, reading to a group of children, helping out single parents, mowing your neighbor's lawn, babysitting for a couple who needs a night out, or giving flowers to someone going through a rough time. We're asking our listeners to use their time, talents and resources either to help out a person in need or simply to make someone else's day brighter."
The show asks that when you are asked why you did something nice for someone else, simply reply "Kidd's memory inspired me" or "I did it for Kidd." On social media you can encourage others to do the same by using the hashtag #ForKidd.
To bring it all together, Monday morning on the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show, the cast will share their favorite memories with Kidd; the man who gave so much to so many people for so many years. At 7:30 a.m. CT, the show will observe a special "moment of noise."
