For our third year in a row, My Mickey Vacation Travel is honored to take part in the Over the Edge fundraiser event benefiting Give Kids the World Village. Each year, more and more of our Dream Designers suit up and/or dedicate their time, talents and passion to support the Over the Edge cause, because we are committed to the mission of Give Kids the World.
On Friday, February 14, 2020, our team of rappelers will show the love by descending 428 feet (32 stories!) down the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Orlando, along with an amazing support team dedicated to raising funds for this hope-giving 100% nonprofit organization that fulfills the wishes of chronically ill children.
We hope to raise a minimum of $10,000 working together with generous donors like you!
Give Kids the World Village provides cost-free respite vacations to chronically ill children and their families. This includes fully-furnished villas, transportation, theme park tickets, meals, and fun activities for all ages. With love and support from many volunteers and donors, Wish Families have a chance to relax, laugh, and enjoy their time together. Many of the My Mickey Vacation Travel team members have had the privilege of volunteering at the Village in the past and have seen first hand the remarkable work Give Kids the World does for these deserving families.
The pool area offers a huge water play area that is wheelchair-accessible. The beloved carousel allows children of all abilities to easily enjoy a ride, and no one can resist a laugh at the snoring tree, Ol' Elmer. Siblings can laugh and enjoy each other in the accessible arcade, railroad, and ice cream shop. A wish granted at the Village is a much-needed respite for these amazing families that helps remind them to never give up hope.
Each year, on the night before the rappel, we are honored to hear the stories of former Give Kid the World family members and child recipients. The joy, laughter and special memories they make during their stay during this most difficult time renew their hope for brighter days. Every guest speaker is so very grateful for this experience, they continue to carry a love for this very special place in their hearts forever.
We feel such a strong connection to this charity that the My Mickey Vacation Travel team unanimously declared Give Kids the World Village as our official charity approximately five years ago. During this time, many of our agents set up an automatic deduction from every package they sell to be donated to this amazing organization. Give Kids the World Village is in the top 2% of reputable charities in the nation, with a whopping 98% of all funds providing direct services to guests.
Thank you in advance for your donation and support of this amazing cause.
We'll see you at the Edge!
