I love Give Kids the World! The 2009 volunteer trip was led by Dave Parfitt, wasn't it? Can you link to the podcasts about the trip, too? If I remember correctly, he did some interviews, didn't he? I think one of my favorite aspects of GKTW is that the mayor will come tuck the children into bed. How sweet is that?!

I was blessed to volunteer there this spring with my son. It was an incredible experience. We are heading back at Easter and this time, my daughter will be old enough to volunteer too. I'm so grateful that the Dis made me aware of this special place.

I believe this is the interview you were thinking of.
