    thank you for help with all my ?'s. I am coming in Aug we are coming for a make a wish trip for my daughter who is 14 and has cancer. I was wondering has anyone had any experience with MAW or how much money I should bring, What is GKW like? help thank you

    Hi Terri,

    Give Kids the World Village is such an incredible place. In fact, for the past 4 years, members of the Moms Panel have joined together (on our own) to raise money for the Village. It holds a very special place in our hearts because their mission is to help families such as yours make priceless memories that will last a lifetime. The Village itself is an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the parks. You'll have your own villa for your family. From the moment you land in Orlando, their representatives will shower your daughter and family with love and attention. Once in the Village your family can enjoy "Ice-Cream for Breakfast", discover the "Castle of Miracles", relax by the pool, play in the game room and simply soak in the hope that will surround you. It is truly an indescribably, magical place.

    As far as your expenses go, Make a Wish and Give Kids the World will cover all of your essentials. If you think you may want to buy some special souvenirs at Disney World for your beautiful daughter, then you'll want to bring some extra cash for that. Again, that is completely dependent on what you think you'll want to buy for her. Maybe a couple hundred dollars just in case?

    I'll be praying for your daughter and your family. Miracles happen every day. I'm wishing you a vacation filled with laughter, love and priceless gift of hope.

    Please let me know if I can assist you further,
