Give Kids The World & Coasting for Kids

Before I met my husband Jeff, I'd never heard of Give Kids the World. Maybe you haven't either. Give Kids the World Village is a 70-acre, nonprofit resort located in Central Florida where kids with life-threatening illnesses and their families can go for weeklong, cost-free once-in-a-lifetime vacations. Over 120,000 children have stayed at the village and no child in need has ever been turned away. I am so blessed to have a healthy child. No one plans for their child to develop a life-threatening illness. Medical treatments are costly and as medical bills pile up I'm sure a family can't imagine spending money for a dream vacation so their child can feel like a normal kid. Give Kids the World provides that opportunity for so many families.

This is the 5th year that my family will be involved with Coasting for Kids, a fundraiser hosted by Cedar Fair at their many amusement parks across the country. On June 9th, we'll be spending the entire day at Cedar Point riding the Gemini roller coaster to raise money for this wonderful charity. Okay, to be honest, I don't ride all day especially since we now have a 3 year old running around. Instead, I tend to help out at the tent that's set up on the midway talking with/getting donations from generous park-goers.

If you would like to help us in supporting this worthwhile cause, you can get to our donation page by clicking on the graphic below. No amount is too small and greatly appreciated!

  1. I was reading another post and saw this at the bottom, so I clicked on it. Just wanted to say thank you to you for supporting Give Kids The World. My niece has a disability called Freidreich's Ataxia and Make A Wish granted her a trip to Florida to Disney. Part of the time that they were there, they stayed at Give Kids The World. It was an AMAZING experience for my sister and her family. They were treated like royalty by Make A Wish for the entire trip. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing her to have those memories. :)

Thanks for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from my readers. I typically respond directly to your email unless it's an answer that I think everyone would be interested in hearing. If you are a no-reply blogger (and I know that blogger doesn't play nice with other blogging platforms!), I will reply directly on my website. Thanks for stopping by!
