True Christmas Blessings
Keith and I have talked a ton about finding a way to teach Conor about the true meaning of Christmas and how much Jesus loves each and every one of us. In appreciation for God's love and gifts he has poured on us, we want to give back to others. Who better than children?! God laid it on my heart that others may want to join in, so we started a Give Kids the World fundraiser!
I had the opportunity to go to Give Kids the World with my cousins Court and Kev and see the amazing experience kids with special needs or life-threatening illnesses get to have. These families do not pay a penny and the children are full of smiles! They recommend ice cream for breakfast, have Christmas every week and provide amazing experiences and accommodations for each family! It is not so easy to travel when your kids require extensive medical attention, but GKTW makes it happen.
Each year 27,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Half of all children eligible for a wish through a wish-granting organization choose to visit Central Florida and its collection of theme parks and other attractions. With your help, Give Kids The World Village can continue to be an amazing place for these families to stay during their once-in-a-lifetime trip.
At the Village, Give Kids The World takes care of it all for these brave kids and their families – accommodations in beautiful villas, transportation, theme park tickets, meals and more. They relax, play, laugh and simply spend time together. And for a kid with a serious illness – that kind of happiness inspires hope.
It costs about $5,000 to make a wish trip happen for a family, so that is why we chose that goal. It's high, but with your help and God's I believe it can happen. Please help us reach our goal by making a donation. It would mean the world to us and to a very special child and their family!
