As more children with life-threatening illnesses wished to experience the magic and adventure of Central Florida, the idea for a colorful, cost-free village took root.
Since 1986, Give Kids The World Village has grown into an 84-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida. The non-profit resort has served as the home-away-from-home for more than 154,000 families.
The Village itself has branched out to provide families lodging, transportation, food, activities, entertainment and countless surprises around every corner. As Give Kids The World Village looks ahead to the next 30 years of creating happiness in the hearts of brave children and families, the support of sponsors is more valuable now than ever before.
A donation is just the beginning. Gifts to the Village become ice cream for breakfast, Christmas in July, a first pony ride, priceless family memories and photos of each magical moment.
Give Kids The World Village provides dream vacations that are not only cost-free, but worry-free for families who need a chance to relax and reconnect after constant doctors and hospital visits. The weeks families spends at the Village is filled with joy, laughter and love.
