Motivational Monday...Give for Global World Wish Day
We are all aware of this wonderful charitable organization and I hope that you’ll continue to support them in any way that you can. However, I’d like to tell you again about another charitable organization that plays an intricate role in helping facilitate many of these wishes.
Give Kids the World is located just outside Orlando and was formed in 1986 by Henry Landwirth. His own story is a remarkable one but his vow that “that no child in need would ever be failed again” was that seed for the Village that occupies 84 acres and “provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with critical illnesses and their families.”
Many of the children who are eligible for wish-granting programs want to come to Central Florida and visit the many attractions. Give Kids the World provides transportation, villas for the children and their families, all meals, theme park tickets, entertainment and much much more.
Larry and I had the honor of meeting Henri Landwirth when Larry’s company (David Weekley Homes) chose Give Kids the World as their charitable organization. They along with their vendors helped to renovate many of the villas.
If you are ever are in the Orlando area, I hope that you’ll make a special trip to visit a very special place.
