Donation Goal: $10,000

The most enchanting sound in the world is that of a child’s laughter.

That is what fills the air at Give Kids The World Village, an 89-acre, whimsical nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides critically ill children and their families with magical weeklong wish vacations at no cost.

Tragically, more than 27,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with a critical illness every year, and half of those who are eligible for a wish choose to visit Orlando. Give Kids The World is the nonprofit that fulfills these wishes – providing every child and his/her entire family with transportation; private villa accommodations; all meals and snacks; daily entertainment; donated theme park tickets; daily gifts; and interactive experiences at the Village, which features accessible rides and attractions.

Since 1986, more than 176,000 wish children and their families from all 50 states and 76 countries have been welcomed to the Village to laugh together, play together, and create priceless memories away from hospital stays and medical treatments.

This extraordinary, life-changing experience is Give Kids The World’s gift, made possible through the generosity of dedicated corporations and countless individuals. For more information, visit www.gktw.org.
