2017 Promise Appeal: Give Kids the World Village, Kissimmee, Florida
The MDRT Foundation is pleased to partner with Give Kids the World Village for the Promise Appeal at this year’s Annual Meeting.
Each year, the Foundation partners with incredible organizations — opening our eyes to selfless missions that support people worldwide by providing resources like food, medical help or water. The Promise Appeal allows members to learn how their involvement can make an immediate impact for those in need.
This year is no different. Give Kids the World Village, located in Kissimmee, Florida, is a 79-acre, nonprofit resort that provides weeklong vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Accommodations in fully-furnished villas, transportation, tickets to theme parks, meals, daily entertainment and much more are all provided free of charge.
Thousands of children are diagnosed each year with a life-threatening illness. 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.
Give Kids the World Village’s goal, quite simply, is to provide everything these deserving families need to make their trip the vacation of a lifetime. Since 1986, more than 150,000 children, from all 50 states and 75 countries, have had their dreams fulfilled in a whimsical village unlike any other place on earth.
