it took a Caribbean Cruise and dynamic dinner table mates to introduce us to the Magical Place called "Give Kids the World Village". Since that time we've had the honor and pleasure of volunteering at GKTW. The staff makes us volunteers feel welcome and important, that is good. However the families we are there to welcome and make them feel at home give us so much more than we ever expected. My husband and I have done almost everything, ice cream for breakfast, the carousel, Gingerbread House for breakfast or dinner, Katie's Kitchen, train rides, gift givers, we were even pool attendants. The magic is anywhere you look. We are "snowbirds" and when we are up north we miss our times at the Village. We can't wait to get back to Florida to volunteer. Henry founded this awe inspiring place to provide a trip of a lifetime for those families dealing with devastating illnesses, does he know what he provided to those of us who are fortunate enouogh to volunteer? God Bless the families and God Bless Henry and family. Not only are we Volunteers, we are donors as well.
