Children's Charity - Give Kids The World Village



The process to be granted a vacation to Give Kids The World Village begins with a wish granting organization.

Give Kids The World Village partners with over 220 wish-granting organizations (WGO) and foundations to make the Central Florida wish a reality. Families that visit Give Kids The World must be referred by one of these wish-granting organizations or foundations. Children ages 3-18, battling a life-threatening illness as deemed by a medical doctor are eligible, regardless of income.

A welcome reprieve is just a phone call away.

Below you will find a list of domestic and international wish-granting organizations and foundations. Please contact your local organization to learn if your child is eligible for a wish, or call 800-995-KIDS, and Give Kids The World can refer you to the wish-granting organization or foundation in your community.
