Welcome to My Personal Page
Hi from Abby Preston. I’m so excited to be fundraising for Give Kids The World Village to celebrate my becoming a Bat Mitzvah on September 9, 2017. My family and I stayed at the Give Kids the World Village when I was 4 years old, just after I beat kidney cancer. It was the most magical, wonderful place to be, and I remember how much I loved being there. It was so much fun for me and my sister Hannah. I could forget everything I had been through, and just have fun with my family - sleeping late in our little villa, staying up late watching movies, eating ice cream and cake every day, visiting Disney World, and meeting so many Disney characters - and it was all free for us. Later I found out that the person who started the village was a holocaust survivor named Henri Landwirth, who built the village for children like me, after he came to America. He built the village to give thanks for his success in America after his terrible childhood in a concentration camp. His family still runs the village. I hope to go back and work there some day when I get older.
With your help, Give Kids The World Village can continue to be a magical place for families like mine to stay during their once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Even the smallest donation would make such a big difference! Please help me reach my goal by making a donation. It would mean the world to me.
