About Give Kids The World
Give Kids The World Village is the nonprofit that fulfills all of these wishes – providing families facing unimaginable challenges with magical week-long, cost-free dream vacations in a whimsical 89-acre resort unlike any place on earth.
When wish-granting organizations from around the world receive a request from a critically ill child who wishes to visit Central Florida, Give Kids The World takes over. From life’s simple pleasures to the stuff that dreams are made of, every wish family is treated to an all-inclusive experience featuring transportation; accommodations; donated theme park tickets; all meals and snacks; daily gifts; nightly entertainment; and unlimited fun at the Village, a storybook destination all its own – featuring an array of accessible rides and attractions.
A stay at the Village is so much more than a vacation. Amidst snoring trees, enchanting castles and the world’s largest game of Candy Land, wish children can experience the joy and wonder of childhood away from hospital stays and medical procedures, while families have the chance to relax, reconnect, and recapture many of the precious moments that may have been missed due to a child's illness…the impact of which is immeasurable. Since 1986, more than 188,000 families from all 50 states and 76 countries have been welcomed to the Village to laugh together, play together, and create unforgettable memories in The Place Where Happiness
Give Kids The World Village is made possible by countless caring donors, corporate partners and volunteers, as well as a passionate team of talented staff members in a breadth of roles.
