Give Kids the World

Since 1986 Give Kids the World have welcomed over 176,000 families from every state in the US as well as 76 countries from around the World. Providing week-long, cost-free wish vacations to critically ill children and their families from around the world at their 89-acre, not for profit resort.

During that transformative week at Give Kids the World, wish families have the chance to laugh, play, and be together. Allowing families to get away from the reality of the life-threatening illness and the obstacle course littered with doctor appointments, painful treatments, overwhelming expenses and endless worry. Instead, families can recapture precious moments.

It’s a magical week of “YES” where wish kids can experience the simple joys of childhood.
