Give Kids The World

Give Kids the World is an 84-acre, non-profit resort located in Central Florida that provides week-long, cost-free vacations to children with critical illnesses. The resort is dedicated to the memory of every child whose last wish had to go unfullfilled. GKTW Village, built through the selfless commitment and generous spirit of so many individuals and corporations, exists for one reason alone, to serve children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. The Village belongs first, foremost, and always to those children who seek it and find joy, laughter, serenity, and a lifetime of memories. It is a Village built on the spoken word and simple handshakes. Let all who pass through our gates recognize that it is our shared responsibility to love and care for each and every child.
