DAVIDSON HOTELS & RESORTS PHILANTHROPYIt takes a Village to raise the hopes and dreams of a child suffering from a life-threatening illness. Too often, children with life-threatening illnesses are forced to lead very different lives. Thrust uncontrollably into extraordinary circumstances that can rob them of the joys, innocence and simplicity of childhood. In the lives of these courageous children, normalcy takes a very different form; many times lacking smiles, laughter, joy and hope. Give Kids The World (GKTW) changes all that. Though not a cure for their medical condition, the extraordinary work performed at The GKTW Village does the impossible. It allows these children to escape the harsh reality of their world. To visit Orlando and stay in a whimsical, 70-acre storybook resort with their family. To visit Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. To laugh out loud with newfound friends. Even to eat ice cream for breakfast. To simply experience the world, as they should-as a child. And when they return home, they take with them one of the most powerful forces on the planet - hope! As a corporate sponsor, Davidson has joyfully and tearfully pledged our love and commitment to these amazing children, both through our volunteer efforts, as well as through long-term financial commitments to GKTW. It has been, without a doubt, one of the most important missions of our Davidson family. And we've all been blessed to experience the beauty of providing hope and faith into an otherwise dire situation. As the highest-ranked charity in the nation, GKTW has now hosted over 120,000 children with life-threatening illnesses, and their families, providing a cost-free, weeklong stay at the Give Kids The World Village, including transportation, meals and tickets to Walt Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios. It also takes a Village of corporate sponsors, individual donors and volunteers to make it all happen-of which we are extremely honored to be a member.
