Give Kids the World Village and Giving Tuesday December 3, 2013

| December 2, 2013 | 5 Replies

It’s the time of year when we are all rushing around because of the upcoming holidays. We have made it through Black Friday, Cyber Monday and now we have a chance to give back to worthy charities with #Giving Tuesday.


I have talked before about Give Kids the World Village here in Kissimmee, FL. This wonderful charity is asking for our help this Tuesday, December 3.  If you could help the DIS and our Power of 10 campaign it would be greatly appreciated. Every dollar means so much to this deserving charity. This year they have a generous donor that is going to match the donations so your donation will be doubled. Why not make this part of your holiday preparations?



What can you do to help? Imagine if 10,000 people each got 10 of their friends to donate $10. About the same price as a movie ticket, a new album, or two foot-long subs. 
If 10,000 people each got 10 of their friends to donate $10 – we would raise $1 million dollars for Give Kids The World.
Power of 10 = $1,000,000.
27,000 children in the US alone are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness every year.Power of 10 = $1,000,000Half of those children (over 13,000) wish to come to Orlando.Power of 10 = $1,000,000

Give Kids The World can only host 7,000 families a year.

Power of 10 = $1,000,000

$1 million dollars would ensure no child is ever turned away.

Won’t you get 10 of your friends to contribute?  Thank you everyone for your donation. Please be sure to put #Giving Tuesday beside your name so your donation is credited correctly.

    Hi Kathy, I saw Give Kids The World on the DIS Updates in my inbox this morning and immediately clicked on the link! Are you very close to there? I need a huge favor from someone that can head over there or will be there soon. My best friend’s son passed away in July, but in the spring he was able to go on his Make a Wish trip to GKTW and Disney. His mom told me this past weekend that his stone had been placed and she asked me to go over there and take a photo of his stone when we make our next Disney trip in the spring. If there is anyone that could go and get a nice photo of his stone for me, I would like to frame it for his mama for Christmas. Please let me know if you or anyone that you know might be able to help me. I can PayPal gas money if it is needed. I would be eternally grateful for any help! Thanks so much!
