About Give Kids The World:

Give Kids The World Village is 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 30,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with a critical illness each 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, a storybook destination all its own – featuring an array of accessible rides and attractions.

Since 1986, nearly 177,000 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.

Give Kids The World’s mission to create the happiness that inspires hope for wish families is made possible by the generosity of caring corporate partners and individual donors. For more information, visit www.gktw.org. To make a donation, visit www.gktw.org/donate.
