GIVE KIDS THE WORLD VILLAGE
One of the stops on our WDW itinerary is a place called Give Kids The World Village. If you listen to the DISUnplugged Podcast, you may have heard about this magical place. If you haven't, here's a little information ...
What is Give Kids The World?
Give Kids The World is a non-profit organization that exists only to fulfill the wishes of all children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the world to experience a memorable, joyful, cost-free visit to the Central Florida attractions, and to enjoy the magic of Give Kids The World Village for as long as there is a need.
100,000 children have had their dream come true at Give Kids The World. No child in need has ever been turned away – and no child ever will. Give Kids The World is a place where families find joy, laughter, serenity, and a lifetime of memories. Through the tireless support of volunteers, employees and generous partners, Give Kids The World dedicates each and every day to these special families.
For more information on Give Kids The World, please visit their website HERE.
Last year, we attended DISapalooza (seminars with Marty Sklar and Lee Cockerell and the Toy Story Mania Party at Disney's Hollywood Studios). During this great weekend, a fellow DISer organized a donation drive for Give Kids The World. Bill and I felt very rewarded by donating to this great cause. This year, we have included our children in the donation efforts.
I got approval from Will and Emily's School Director (they attend a Charter School) to let them do a donation drive at school where the items will go to Give Kids The World. While in Florida, we will bring the items to Give Kids The World Village. I know this will be a great learning experience for our children to give back to others in need.
Wish us luck on the donation drive!
