On Wednesday, Oct. 23, Shreveport-Bossier will come together for Kidd's Kids Day. The brainchild of radio personality Kidd Kraddick, this year's fundraising effort is especially important to us. We want to show Kidd what we can really do to support the cause that meant the world to him.

Kidd's Kids Day is the day where we all come together to help kids with terminal or chronic illnesses. Each year, Kidd's Kids sends children and families who face a lifetime of struggles to Walt Disney World for an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime trip. And the coolest thing is that it all happens because of your generosity. We do have a local family going this year, so know when you're making your donation your helping out 7 year old Logan Knighton of Shreveport have the experience of a lifetime!
