A quote from one of our Wish families…
“Our son’s wish to go Disney World was a trip of a lifetime for us all. We were a normal family again on vacation. There were no hospitals, no I.V.’s, no sickness. We laughed and were amazed that it was just like old times. Thank you most of all for the memories, not matter what happens next we will always have those, which are more valuable than any treasure.” – the B family, PA

The most magical sound in the world is that of a child’s laughter. That is what fills the air at Give Kids The World Village (GKTW), a fanciful, carefree retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their deserving families.
GKTW is a 70-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort located near Central Florida’s most beloved attractions. While at the Village children and their families are treated to weeklong cost-free fantasy vacations, complete with accommodations in whimsical villas, transportation, donated attractions tickets, meals and much more. These children learn that dreams really do come true as they and their families and immersed in joy, love and hope for a few unforgettable happy days- a most welcomed escape from the weight of their challenging circumstances.

GKTW’s fiscal responsibility…
GKTW is proud to be ranked among the nation’s top charities and is committed to fiscal responsibility and being a good steward of the support and resources we receive from our generous corporate heroes and dedicated individuals. Of each dollar we spent in 2012, approximately 91.7 cents went directly to our families for their cost-free, magical vacation. Very few charitable organizations reach and sustain this level of administrative and fundraising efficiency, and we work every day to maintain this success.
