Give Kids The World Village is an 89-acre nonprofit resort in Kissimmee, Florida that provides critically ill children and their families with week-long wish vacations at no cost.
Tragically, more than 30,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with a critical illness each year, and half of those eligible for a wish choose to visit Central Florida and its world-renowned theme parks.
Give Kids The World fulfills all of these wishes, providing children and their families with all-expenses-paid vacations, including transportation, storybook villa accommodations, meals, and snacks, donated theme park tickets, nightly parties, daily gifts, and unique interactive experiences at the Village, featuring an array of accessible rides, attractions and venues.
Since 1986, Give Kids The World has accommodated nearly 177,000 families from all 50 states and 76 countries. Give Kids The World has been rated Four Stars by Charity Navigator 15 years in a row. Less than 1% of all U.S. charities have achieved this distinction.
