Scoops of Hope and Rays of Sunshine


We often hear from wish families looking for a way to give back to the Village after their stay. When a place with so much love fills a family with so much joy, it’s hard to hold that in. It often bursts out into the world like rays of sunshine. One such example is Faith’s family from New Florence, PA. Except, this particularly special family decided to contribute before they had even arrived. Weeks before their trip, Faith’s family began working on their own Scoops of Hope fundraiser. Thanks to their hard work, and the kindness of local neighbors and companies, the ice cream party was a hit! There was face painting, music, and dancing—a must for Faith, since it’s her absolute favorite thing to do.


Upon arriving at Give Kids The World Village, Faith and her siblings, Gabbi and Jackson, couldn’t wait to tell us all about the Scoops of Hope fundraiser and the $3,500 they had raised. (That’s right, you read correctly, $3,500!)

By the end of the week, Faith and her family had accomplished a great many things. Faith joined the Disney Princesses for lunch in Cinderella’s Castle, Gabbi met a dolphin and became hooked on roller coasters, and Jackson met his favorite super heroes at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. We are so incredibly grateful for this family’s hard work and love for the Village. What a thrill it was that we had the opportunity to make so many of their wishes come true.
