Giving away $400 dollars

Earlier this week, I decided to do something a bit strange.  I wrote my 4,000th tweet (@365DaysOfDisney), and decided to donate some money to a good cause: Give Kids The World®.  I decided that I would give $1 for every retweet I got, up to $400.  Am I rich?  Absolutely not.  Am I crazy?  Maybe.  Is the money going to a great cause?  Definitely!

What is Give Kids The World?  It is a “non-profit “storybook” resort… where children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are treated to week long, cost-free fantasy vacations.” (www.gktw.org)  Started by hotelier Henri Landwirth, it is located about 15 minutes from Walt Disney World.  Every need of its visitors is taken care of, complimentary, during their week long vacations.  There are activities at the village itself (including non-branded themed Boston Market and Perkins restaurants), and guests can go to a number of theme parks in the area around it (Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World, to name a few).  In their 20+ years serving families, over 127,000 have been able to spend a week at the Village.  Just this year, they remodeled a number of their accommodations, knowing that if it’s anything like record breaking 2012 (7,300 families!), they’ll be busy.

There is so much that could be written about Give Kids The World, but instead, I encourage you to check out their webpage.  If you feel the desire to donate to them, you are more than welcome to! Just $25 can allow  family to use the Ice Cream Palace bar for their entire visit.
