Give Kids the World Village is a wonderful place for kids with life-threatening illnesses to go for vacation as part of the granting of a wish or other like agency! It is a magical place of whimsy and ice cream for breakfast!
Here’s some information about Give Kids the World:
GKTW is a 70-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort located near Central Florida’s most beloved attractions. While at the Village children and their families are treated to weeklong cost-free fantasy vacations, complete with accommodations in whimsical villas, transportation, donated attractions tickets, meals and much more. These children learn that dreams really do come true as they and their families are immersed in joy, love and hope for a few unforgettable happy days- a most welcomed escape from the weight of their challenging circumstances.
Since 1986, GKTW has hosted over 135,000 families from all 50 states and more than 74 countries. The extraordinary, life-changing experience that GKTW offers is a gift made possible only thorough the generosity of countless corporations and individuals like you. For more information, visit www.gktw.org.
My son and I are running (Ok, walking really…) in this year’s Give Kids the World 5K in November. We are collecting donations for GKTW, and these donations go directly to GKTW. My son would love to raise $500, but we still have quite a ways to go. Can you help us reach his goal? If you would like to donate, please follow this link to the GKTW donation site.
We’d like to give a shout out of thanks to those who donated to Give Kids the World!
