Almost three weeks ago, Cardinals president Michael Bidwill personally flew his star wide receiver Anquan Boldin home from New York on his private jet. Now Bidwill is using the same private jet to embark on another more significant mission — a relief effort to Mexico.
Bidwill is flying his jet to Mexico Thursday to deliver much-needed supplies such as diapers, shoes and clothing to the Alamos area of Mexico that Hurricane Norbert flooded and ravaged.
It’s not the first time the NFL has tried to come to the rescue of the needy. The Packers once did their part to help Hurricane Katrina victims. Texans owner Bob McNair, along with the NFL, contributed $500,000 to the victims of Hurricane Ike. And now Bidwill is personally flying to Mexico to do his part.
Bidwill will be one of about 30 pilots from the Baja Bush Pilots group coming to the rescue in Mexico. Bidwill also is a member of the Flying Samaritans, which operates free medical clinics in Mexico. So while teams are prepping for Sunday’s game on Thursday, Bidwill will be doing his own important work, capping quite a week for the Cardinals.
Arizona gets props for upsetting Dallas. Now Bidwill gets more for helping Mexico.
