Fort Worth, Texas – In a remarkable demonstration of corporate philanthropy converging with culinary passions, Raising Cane’s— an illustrious fast-food chain known for its exponential growth and delectable Chicken Finger meals— has redoubled its long-standing commitment to community engagement. For over a dozen years, the brand has ardently backed Kidd’s Kids, a nonprofit organization rooted in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, which was founded by the late iconic radio broadcaster and Dallas denizen, Kidd Kraddick.
Raising Cane’s to organize a 24-hour donation campaign for Kidd’s Kids
On Wednesday, August 30, Raising Cane’s is slated to orchestrate a monumental fundraising campaign with the ambitious objective of amassing a sum of $100,000 within a single 24-hour window. The fundraising mechanism is ingeniously straightforward: for every Box Combo purchased, a single dollar will be funneled directly to Kidd’s Kids.
This magnanimous endeavor will not be confined to a single locality, but will rather span an extensive network of over 200 Raising Cane’s locations. These participating establishments are strategically positioned in markets where the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show reverberates across the airwaves, including—but not limited to—Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Missouri. The fundraising activities will unfold during the standard operating hours of these eateries, thereby offering patrons ample opportunity to contribute to this laudable cause.

“We have been able to raise over one million dollars for Kidd’s Kids because of our awesome Crew, who really get behind this and are proud of it, and our Customers who come out and support,” said Raising Cane’s founder Todd Graves. “I began listening to the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show when I was a young entrepreneur. I’m proud of the work we’ve been able to do with Kidd’s Kids over the last twelve years and look forward to doing it again this year.”
Augmenting the altruistic momentum of the day, Raising Cane’s, in collaboration with the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show, is poised to host both current and former beneficiaries of the Kidd’s Kids program. This congenial assembly will transpire at Raising Cane’s Grand Prairie location, situated at 3158 South State Highway 161, commencing at 11 a.m. Central Time. As an emblematic gesture of inclusivity, all families who have ever been under the benevolent umbrella of Kidd’s Kids and desire to partake in the August 30 fundraiser will be the recipients of complimentary Box Combos at participating outlets across various markets.
Incepted in the year 1991, the Kidd’s Kids initiative was conceived with the noble intent of catalyzing transformative experiences for children beset with life-altering illnesses and complex medical exigencies. This philanthropic commitment has undergone a substantial evolution, now manifesting as an all-expenses-paid sojourn to Walt Disney World for the selected families. During this quintet of days, Kidd’s Kids and their familial support systems are afforded an invaluable respite from their habitual medical environs, basking in the myriad joys that the iconic amusement park proffers.
The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show, a syndicated auditory experience resonating on more than 65 radio stations nationwide, and even broadcasted via the American Forces Radio, fills the airwaves from 6 to 10 a.m. Central Daylight Time, Monday through Friday.
