A message from Give Kids The World President and CEO, Pamela Landwirth.
I cannot thank you enough for the incredible support we witnessed yesterday for #GivingTuesdayNow. These are uncertain times, but one thing remains certain; that we can all look forward to the eventual re-opening of the Village. In one day, almost 500 supporters came together to help #GiveHopeToWishes. Our Village has always been fueled by love and enriched by selflessness, and there is no place like it on earth. Your support on this day of giving helped ensure we are able to serve the children and families currently waiting on their wish due to this global pandemic. Personally, I can’t wait to walk the avenue again; hear the laughter, serve heaps of ice cream, see children putting on makeup in the spa before Stellar’s Starry Night Ball, and sprinkle all of them with love and kindness at every turn.
There is still time for you to help #GiveHopeToWishes and join those who are committed to the mission of Give Kids The World. Your support is helping provide families with the opportunity to experience the magic of our whimsical Village when our gates open again. You can give this hope through a donation, by learning more about what it takes to be a volunteer, or even by sharing our mission with your friends and family.
The outpouring of love and support yesterday means the world to me and to our entire organization, and I look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Village as soon as it is safe to do so, continuing our 34-year legacy. Thank you for helping #GiveHopeToWishes.
With love and gratitude from the bottom of my heart,
