Testimonials from Children and Families at the Give Kids The World Village:
"For a whole week, our family was able to get away from the reality that our son is dying. We were treated like a normal family. Nobody stared or asked questions. We were the same as everyone else. We are so very thankful that so many volunteers took time out of their busy schedules to spend time with our family and make it a special week. The memories that we made this week will never be forgotten."
“Although Disney World may be the “happiest place on earth,” Give Kids The World Village is certainly heaven on earth! Peyton and I have had many conversations about surgeries and illness and death – it is an unfortunate side effect of the life she has lived. But now I find great comfort that when we talk about heaven in the future, I can compare it to Give Kids the World and then she won’t need to be afraid because it was a place she never wanted to leave.”
"After one week, our family really felt at home in the village. It was the first time in years that we could have a moment to relax and have fun without thinking about our daughter's disease. It just felt great! Just thinking that so many people had the generosity to help our family was overwhelming. It was the best experience ever. We now feel stronger, recharged, and hopeful!"
