In 2009, when I first joined the Walt Disney World Moms Panel, I thought it was an awesome opportunity to raise awareness for an organization that I have always thought was one of the most amazing on the planet. Can you imagine this – you are the parents of a very sick child, and every day of your life is filled with doctors, nurses, needles, medicine, schedules, treatments. There is no playing outside, soaking up sunshine, relaxing, smiling.
Then someone calls you and tells you that your family will be receiving an all expenses paid trip for a week at the Most Magical Place on Earth. I know – you think it’s Disney World – but it’s not. It’s Give Kids the World. Families relax in fabulous accommodations; are provided with theme park tickets to places like Disney, Sea World, and Universal; and treated to a week full of smiles, laughing, and playing – all those things kids are supposed to be doing!
Each star represents the wish of a seriously ill child
You know now why Give Kids the World is the charity that the Moms and I chose to support. As moms, how could we NOT be a part of the daily sprinkling of pixie dust that takes place at Give Kids the World?
