â€œLife Lessonsâ€¦one Disney Movie Line at a time.â€
GIVE KIDS THE WORLD (GKTW), is a 70-acre, non-profit resort in Central Florida that creates magical memories for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. GKTW provides accommodations at its whimsical resort, and offers its guests donated attractions tickets, meals and more for a week-long, cost-free fantasy vacation. To date, Give Kids the World has welcomed more than 90,000 families from all 50 states and over 65 countries. http://www.gktw.org/
In 2009, members of the Walt Disney World Moms Panel family decided to raise money for Give Kids the World Village in Florida. This had absolutely nothing to do with their position on the Panel, they just wanted to help spread some pixie dust to children who desperately deserved it. So together, in October of 2009, they presented a check for $1,450 to the Village.
The next year, the family grew and we all set out in hopes of doubling that amount. Together, we raised more than 5 TIMES that and in October 2010, we donated $7,500 to the Village.
In April of this year, we set the bar even higher! Our goal was to raise at least $10,000 for Give Kids the World Village. With an ever growing family that just happens to have a passion for spreading pixie dust, we were very determined. We took the line from Disney’s High School Musical, “We’re All in This Together” and we hit the ground running. This coming Friday, September 30th, we will again visit Give Kids the World Village to deliver even more pixie dust!
There’s still a few hours left!!! If YOU donate $50 to our fundraiser, YOU will be entered into a drawing to win 5 nights at either Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort OR one of the Disney Vacation Club properties at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida!! TOGETHER, we can help bring happiness and hope to these precious children. We are currently less than $600 away from a grand total of $20,000 over the past 3 years. Just think of how many priceless memories that is!!
