  • News Coasting For Kids and a look at Give Kids The World - You CAN Make a Difference!

    I recently received a guest post from Zachary Fakterowitz of about the upcoming benefit for Give Kids The World hosted by Cedar Fair parks across the country. The event is called Coasting For Kids and it is one of those things in life that is all too easy to miss but one which will enrich your life and the life of a child in need if you'll just give a few moments of your time to read below. We'll let you know how you can get involved or make a donation. This is a story which will warm your hart.

    Give Kids The World Village is a nonprofit resort in Kissimmee, Florida for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Wish Children and their family members are given a weeklong all expenses paid vacation in Orlando.

    Give Kids The World allows those children and their families to escape from a very sad and depressing situation and allow them to make good memories together that will last a lifetime for the parents and the children! While in Orlando the families have a chance to visit the parks (free of charge) and stay at the Give Kids The World Village, which is a special resort created for these wish children.

    Give Kids the World has touched the lives of over 85,000 children and their families since the Village was started in 1989. Give Kids the World is heavily supported by many major amusement park companies including the Walt Disney Company, Universal Parks and Resorts, Cedar Fair, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment. In addition, Theme Park Industry organizations such as IAAPA (The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions) along with other companies such as Walmart, Hasbro and Mears. The list of sponsors for Give Kids the World stretches over 2 pages! These companies supply the Give Kids The World Village with not only finical resources but with volunteers too, many Theme Park employees (including executives) regularly help out at Give Kids the World! Through these contributions Give Kids the World will welcome approximately 7,000 families this year.

    The Village is very large and occupies over 70 acres. The atmosphere is very Theme park like. In fact many Theme park design companies helped design faculties for the Village.

    Also within the pool complex is a large water play area. This is a very very wet area to walk by. The water play area is accessible to allow for everyone to be able to play within it.

    The heart of Give Kids The World can be found at the Castle of Miracles. The exterior is very fanciful. The Mushroom jutting out from the side houses a Carousel.

    You CAN make a difference in the life of a child in need. What a wonderful facility and a great event.
