My Personal Web Log
I haven't said that in several years, and I can't wait to do it again in February!
There is no way I can adequately explain what the staff and volunteers do at Give Kids the World Village, but here goes...
Make a Wish Children come from all over the world to spend a week at the Village, where they can ride the rides, eat as much ice cream as they want, swim in an easily accessible pool, ride a pony, have a makeover, and have a party each night. This sounds cool, but the real big thing is that many of these kids can't normally do anything like this due to their medical conditions. This is often the one and only time that they and their families can truly have a vacation.
Being part of this fundraiser is a way to help insure that the Village, which completely relies on donations, can continue to provide this opportunity for children in need. (And if I can get $1000 for the Village I get to rappel!!!)
