This year's Charity was founded by the late great Kid Kraddick
► Kidds’ Kids | Irving, Texas
At Kidd’s Kids, our primary goal is to provide chronically ill and/or physically challenged children (ages 5 to 12) with an unforgettable adventure! Throughout the year, we work hard to raise the funds necessary to send these special kids on an all-expenses paid, fun-filled, vacation to Walt Disney World ® in Florida. Most of our funding comes from donations made by listeners to the Kidd Kraddick In The Morning radio show, corporate sponsors, and various fundraising events.
All aspects of the trip are coordinated by Kidd’s Kids. All funds raised go directly to cover the cost of sending the children and their families to Walt Disney World®, administrative expenses of Kidd’s Kids, and to sustain an endowment fund for the purpose of providing long-term growth and stability for the charitable programs of the Kraddick Foundation. The Kraddick Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization, founded by nationally syndicated morning show personality Kidd Kraddick. The Kidd’s Kids program is based on the premise of making a difference in the lives of children with special medical needs.
"Cupcake Meet began in Zilker Park, in Austin, an idea among a few friends to raise awareness of the car-show community, vehicular culture, mechanical aesthetics and engineering. As the movement grew popular, the originators of the Cupcake Meet event began to formalize their plans and their communitarian visions. They took steps to organize as a corporation, incorporating in 2010, and began donating to charities after designing a way to do so. Through donations raised at the gates of their events, Cupcake Meet has provided thousands of dollars to different charities, mainly in Texas. But since Cupcake Meet is using social media and sends directors to other states to network with companies and enthusiasts, it has expanded beyond the confines of Texas to other states. As well, it is Cupcake Meet’s national vision to organize a single, coordinated series of car meets across multiple U.S. cities, from which a single, pooled donation shall be accumulated to donate to one major charity. Cupcake Meet intends to continue donating to charities and shoot for annual nationally coordinated events after meeting this initial goal."
