Give Kids the World Update

Kevin Yee, who writes for MiceAge, has started another round of fund-raising for Give Kids the World, located in Orlando Florida.

What is Give Kids the World? Here's what he writes:

"Give Kids the World Village provides highly themed accommodations for children with life-threatening illnesses who are visiting the Orlando area with wish-granting organizations, and the demand is so great, they need to keep expanding their villas. While they have the land, they need money to do so. The online Disney fan community is a perfect match for helping these kids, since we share the same interests!"

The idea is to raise enough money to build an entire Villa in the name of the Disney fan community - which this blog is to a degree a part of - the first round raised over $9,000 toward the effort.

I know that I have *a lot* to be grateful for this holiday season, and while there are a lot of ways to do good this time of the year, I feel this is a great opportunity to make a difference. Giving kids, and their families, a break from their difficulties in a magical place - isn't that kind of generosity what the holidays are about?

I'm putting the link to the firstgiving page below for the effort, won't you think about making a donation?
