Power of 10: Give Kids The World $1,000,000 Challenge

Once there was a little girl named Amy.  Amy had leukemia and one Wish – to visit the world famous theme parks and attractions of Orlando, Florida.  Henri Landwirth owned an Orlando hotel and offered free lodging to fulfill Amy’s Wish.  Unfortunately, Amy’s reservation was cancelled.  The rest of her travel plans took too long to arrange – her Wish was never granted.  Amy passed away.  Time simply ran out. 

Henri Landwirth understood the importance of youth and the importance of time. Henri lost his youth spending time in an Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II.  Henri vowed no child would lose their last wish again – Give Kids The World was born.  Give Kids The World is a non-profit resort that provides a memorable, magical, weeklong cost-free vacation to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.  Through the generous support of individuals and corporations, Give Kids The World can bring families with special needs to Central Florida within 24 hours.

What can you do to help?

Imagine if 10,000 people each got 10 of their friends to donate $10.

About the same price as a movie ticket, a new album, or two foot-long subs.

If 10,000 people each got 10 of their friends to donate $10 – we would raise $1 million dollars for Give Kids The World. $1,000,000.

10,000 people --> Power of 10

10 friends --> Power of 10

$10 --> Power of $10

$1 million dollars would ensure no child is ever turned away.

Power of 10 = $1,000,000

27,000 children in the US alone are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness every year.

Power of 10 = $1,000,000

Half of those children (over 13,000) wish to come to Orlando.

                Power of 10 = $1,000,000

Give Kids The World can only host 7,000 families a year.

Power of 10 = $1,000,000

$1 million dollars would ensure no child is ever turned away.

Won’t you get 10 of your friends to contribute?
