The Give Kids The World Village is a non-profit resort in Central Florida. A place “where happiness inspires hope,” Give Kids The World provides a “storybook” setting where children with critical illnesses together with their families enjoy weeklong vacations (including transportation, tickets to theme parks, and more) at no cost.
Give Kids The World has announced its decision to suspend all operations of the Village due to concerns over the Coronavirus with the goal of keeping “everyone involved safe and to do our part to help prevent the spread of this global pandemic.” Operations are suspended until April 1st, when the organization will reassess in order to make the safest decision regarding reopening.
On the organization’s website, it is shared that “Half of all children eligible for a wish through a partnering wish-granting organization choose to visit Central Florida and its collection of theme parks and other attractions,” and that Give Kids The World welcomed their 175,00th family this past January.
The organization also shares that “We look forward to getting back to fulfilling wishes as soon as we can.”
