Because You Care – Kidds Kids

I’m on a mission…

Kidds Kids is an organization that was created in 1991 by Kidd Kraddick with the hope of making a difference in the lives of terminally and chronically ill children. Each year, Kidd’s Kids offers five amazing days of suspended reality to children whose lives have been ravaged by disease. No hospital visits, no shots, no uncomfortable stares from strangers. Just five straight days of sheer joys and excitement at “the most magical place on earth,” Walt Disney World. Kidd’s Kids children and their families are given the chance to experience the exuberance of being “normal.” That is the gift that you and I can offer by supporting the Kidd’s Kids organization. Please visit Kiddskids.com to get a glimpse of some of these kids and their families and while you are there please make a donation to support this important cause.

My mission is to help get the word out about Kidds Kids.  You see, donations are a little slow this year, probably due to the economy.  The funny thing is that when I go out to eat, or to see a movie, or shop at the mall, or get a latte at Starbucks I still see plenty of people out and about, spending money.  Now I’m not complaining, in fact, I think that is a good thing.  My point is that we all have something we could give up for one week, one weekend, even one day that would allow us to donate to Kidds Kids.  Why?  Because it would just be too sad for one or more of the selected families to find out they couldn’t participate because there just wasn’t enough donations.  Because it may be the thing that helps a family get through the pressures and demands they are enduring this year.  Because it reminds these families that they are not alone and that gives them hope.  Because you care.
