We enjoyed the smile of every volunteer and staff member who made every day a special day. There was no staring, no questions, just friendly smiles. You provided that to our family. It was amazing. None of us wanted to leave and go back to reality. Thanks to you, our family is stronger! – Wish mom, Giselle


For the past three years, AAOE Annual Conference attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors have had the opportunity to give back to and support the conference’s host city through a local charity. This year, can we count on you to help make wishes come true for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families?

Supporting the Village is a community effort, and we need your help! Because funds donated to Give Kids The World Village provide trips for children with life threatening illnesses in all 50 US states and 75 countries — maybe even in your own community. Remember, the money you raise helps make a child’s dream come true.

AAOE has a goal of $20,000 and we are challenging our members to raise $10,000 and our exhibitor and vendor partners to raise $10,000! Who will reach their goal first? Keep promoting, checking back, and watch the progress!

AAOE 2018 Annual Conference attendees who donate $25 or more get a shirt onsite to wear on Sunday, April 15 for Give Kids the World Day!
