Give Kids the World Village- Extreme Village Makeover

give kids the world village extreme makeoverIf you read my blog regularly, you know that the organization, Give Kids the World Village is dear to my heart. The work they do for children with life-threatening illnesses is so important to not only the children, but the families as well. This week they began work on 88 of the villas which are home base for the children when they visit the village.

With the help of Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), these villas will be transformed in the period of two weeks.  Sound impossible?  Not for the team at Give Kids the World Village! As of January 12th, they have been working non-stop (yes, 24 hours a day!) to create a new experience for the children and families that will come to visit. With the renovation cost of $60,000 for each villa, Give Kids the World can definitely use whatever help you can offer!

Can’t afford to help out financially at this point? If you are local to the area, or have a way of getting materials to them, they are also accepting donations of that kind. Are you a fix-it person or just someone who loves to help in whatever way you can? You can visit their page and find out how you can donate your time and service to help this worthwhile cause.
