I’m taking a quick break from cakes today to tell you about something that’s very close to my heart. I read about this on Cake Wrecks and had to forward the message on to you guys. Give Kids the World is an amazing, fantastical village in Kissimmee, FL where kids with life-threatening diseases can come live out their dreams.
They work closely with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and families are fed, housed, and entertained for FREE for an entire week. They spend their days in all of the Orlando theme parks and their nights in this fun, kid-friendly village.
My family has volunteered many, many hours in the dining room and ice cream shop. This place really is a child’s wonderland. I mean, the trash cans even talk and joke! Really!
Well, Give Kids the World is participating in the Pepsi Refresh Project. If they get the most votes by June 30th, they are going to renovate and renew the village! PLEASE go vote for them every day! They are currently in 11th place. We just can’t something like a weight room or a horror film festival get the renovation funds…we just can’t.
So please take a minute out of your day, every day, until June 30th to vote. You can even vote on Facebook and share it with all your friends there.
