This is to raise funds for an amazing charity, Give Kids the World Village. They work with over 250 wish fulfilling organizations.

Once again, My Mickey Vacation Travel is honored to take part in the Over the Edge fundraiser event benefiting Give Kids the World Village.
Our entire team of dedicated Dream Designers is passionate about creating magical memories. One of our core values is giving back to
wonderful organizations such as this, and while last year's event was a huge success, we hope to go even bigger in 2019!

On Friday, February 8, 2019, we have four rappelers willing to descend 428 feet (32 stories!) down the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Orlando, along with an amazing support team dedicated to raising funds for this hope-giving 100% nonprofit organization that fulfills the wishes of chronically ill children. We hope to raise a minimum of $10,000 working together with generous donors like you.

Give Kids the World Village provides cost-free respite vacations to chronically ill children and their families. This includes fully-furnished villas, transportation, theme park tickets, meals, and fun activities for all ages. With love and support from many volunteers and donors, Wish Families have a chance to relax, laugh, and enjoy their time together. Many of the My Mickey Vacation Travel team members have had the privilege of volunteering at the Village in the past and have seen first-hand the remarkable work Give Kids the World does for these deserving families.

The pool area offers a huge water play area that is wheelchair-accessible. The beloved carousel allows children of all abilities to easily enjoy a ride, and no one can resist a laugh at the snoring tree, Ol' Elmer. Siblings can laugh and enjoy each other in the accessible arcade, railroad, and ice cream shop. A wish granted at the Village is a much-needed respite for these amazing families that helps remind them to never give up hope.

Last year, the night before we participated in the rappel, we had the honor of listening to a former Wish child tell her story at a Courage Party. She had been diagnosed with cancer and her family was really at a low point when her wish was granted. Her week at the Village allowed all of them to relax, laugh, and just be a child. Her family left renewed and full of hope. She has been in remission for over five years now and will tell anyone willing to listen her story of what the Village meant to her and her family.

We feel such a strong connection to this charity that the My Mickey Vacation Travel team unanimously declared Give Kids the World Village as our official charity approximately four years ago. During this time, many of our agents set up an automatic deduction from every package they sell to be donated to this amazing organization. Give Kids the World Village is in the top 2% of reputable charities in the nation, with a whopping 98% of all funds providing direct services to guests. To date, we have donated nearly $10,000 to this wonderful organization.
