    Post Give Kids the World - Help bring some magic to a child in need

    Kevin Yee, MiceAge columnist and Disney author, is launching a campaign to help raise funds for an extremely worthy charity. Please read the excerpts below, or his entire column on MiceAge: http://www.miceage.com/kevinyee/ky022307a.htm

    If you've been around for some time, you may well have heard of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Or one of dozens of other wish-granting foundations out there, many of whom send children with life-threatening illnesses to Walt Disney World to fulfill their lifelong dreams. What you may not have realized is that all such agencies send almost all their children (and families) to Disney World with the help of one local charity: Give Kids The World (GKTW) Village.

    Over 250+ national and international foundations funnel the wish requests through GKTW, which then arranges for free park tickets to Disney World, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando through a Compassion program, and then houses the children and their families at their own 70-acre resort called The Village.

    Over 6,000 children and their families visited Give Kids The World Village in 2005, representing about half of the Wishes from the wish-granting institutions in the USA and from around the world. But demand is expected to essentially double in the coming years.

    Join MiceAge, MiceChat, and the Disney Internet community in helping to raise enough money to sponsor a new villa at Give Kids the World Village.

    Your help can make a world of difference to a child in crisis. We thank you for your help and support.

    Let's set a goal for ourselves to hit a major mile stone in this campaign by the end of the month.

    1/3rd of the total goal is $8,333. We are almost there. Let's push ourselves, family, and friends to make that small donation needed to help us get to the 1/3rd mark.

    Donate here: http://www.firstgiving.com/disneyfans

    Thank you for your support!

    It's so impressive to me that Mice Chatters are such a generous, socialy aware group. We are always so involved in so many worth while things.

    Go MICECHAT!
