Syndicated KIDD KRADDICK IN THE MORNING sidekick JOSE "J-SI" CHAVEZ returned to his home neighborhood in MEXICO CITY to deliver a van full of toys to a local orphanage last weekend. J-SI decided to make the trip last FALL and approached KRADDICK with the idea for an on-air mention, and KRADDICK, impressed that CHAVEZ was making the trip on his own dime, put up a thousand dollars to match CHAVEZ' own contibution.
"I’ve been very fortunate, when you consider where I came from," said CHAVEZ. "I moved to the states when I was nine and spoke about ten words of English. For me to be on one of AMERICA's top morning shows is about as improbable as anything you can imagine."
Clips from the trip have been posted at KiddLive.com and on YOUTUBE.
