Give Kids The World is an amazing non-profit organization based in Kissimmee, Florida that offers free week-long vacation dreams to seriously ill children and their families. Similar to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, it works with thousands of families each year and has granted wishes to nearly 177,000 families since its inception in 1986.

Their central location is the Give Kids the World Village, a dedicated hotel and resort for families on the program. The Village consists of 166 private villas and four accessible attractions. It also offers a variety of amenities and activities, all named after children whose wishes have been granted. The Kissimmee location allows the organization to frequently partner with destinations such as Walt Disney World Resort, a frequent supporter and collaborator.
