This year, I'm donating my birthday and Christmas to Give Kids the World.
I've been volunteering at Give Kids The World for awhile now, and it's amazing to see the difference that a 7-day vacation can make for not just a kid, but the whole family. It's not just the wish kids who have had their lives turned upside down -- parents' and siblings' lives revolve around doctor's appointments, treatments, and hospital stays. They miss out on school activities, sports, and time with friends.
Give Kids The World helps them reclaim that time, regain that sense of normalcy, and spend time together as a family during week-long, zero-cost vacations. I've spoken with countless families that say they can't remember how long it's been since they've done something fun as a family, and it's hard to imagine just how much a vacation means to them until you see it with your own eyes.
If I reach my fundraising goal, I'll be invited to rappel down the side of the Hyatt Regency in downtown Orlando next valentines day!
