Motivational Monday...Give for Global World Wish Day

 

April 29 is Global World Wish Day and your opportunity to help grant the wishes of sick children. This day marks the anniversary of the beginning of the Make a Wish Foundation.

 

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

 

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.

This is certainly a very worthy organization that helps make the dark days a family can face during health issues...so much brighter.

Hello Kathy - in a world that is so deserving there is no shortage of people helping others. We should keep that thought in mind and definitely participate in our own way. The payback is exponential.

Hi Donald Urschalitz you're right this day should be celebrated everyday. I know how involved you are in your local cancer organization. 

Wayne Martin it is such a worthwhile organization. 

Sally K. & David L. Hanson They have Christmas every week because for some children, this may be their last Christmas.
