July 27 marks the third anniversary of Kidd Kraddick's death

The North Texas-based morning show host was one of the most beloved and influential voices in radio, which is why his remaining team is hoping listeners nationwide will commemorate his legacy this weekend.

The "Do It For Kidd" campaign encourages people to embody Kraddick's belief in the power of paying it forward by performing random acts of kindness.

Says the website, it can be as simple as checking in on elderly person, buying a cup of coffee for the person behind you or babysitting for a couple that needs a night out.

Technically, the campaign runs July 29-31, but we give you the green light to continue spreading good vibes for as long as you darn well please.

Kidd Kraddick, Steve Harvey will be among 2016 inductees into National Radio Hall of Fame

Dallas-Fort Worth residents have another opportunity this weekend to commemorate Kraddick, a 2016 National Radio Hall of Fame inductee, and give back to the community. The radio host's charity, Kidd's Kids, celebrates its 25th anniversary with a block party and fundraiser in the Dallas Design District on Saturday, July 30. The party, which starts at 7 p.m., is a '90s theme with live music from local band The Clinton Years, which only plays tunes popular during the former president's tenure.

There will also be local craft beer provided by Nine Band Brewing in Allen, which was voted D-FW's favorite brewery last year, as well as food from Fuzzy's Tacos and Chili's.

"My Dad would be proud, and he'd certainly want to throw a party to celebrate," said Caroline Cradick, the radio host's daughter, in a statement. "I hope everyone who loves Kidd's Kids will come out, dress up, join us in the fun and help us continue to offer life-changing vacations for these wonderful kids and their families."
