EVENT DATE: Sep 14, 2012
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Sep 14, 2012
Give Kids The World Village is a 70-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort located near Central Florida’s most beloved attractions. Here, children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free fantasy vacations, complete with accommodations in whimsical villas, transportation, donated attraction tickets, meals, and much more. Since 1986, Give Kids The World has welcomed more than 115,000 families from all 50 states and more than 70 countries. No child in need has ever been turned away – and no child ever will.
Our mission is to raise $20,000.00 for Enchanted Weekend by September 14th, 2012, to create an unforgettable, magical weekend for these incredible children battling life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Ten young celebrities will fly to Orlando September 7th- 9th, 2012, for an interactive, inspirational, hands-on experience with the children˗ leading them in relays, scavenger hunts, arts & crafts, music, storytelling, and more!
Our celebrities, aka Team Leaders, will join a Pirates and Princesses Party with performances, prizes, and games! The children and Team Leaders will also paint an 8x10 canvas that will be auctioned off.
