Flattie Vacations

for Give Kids The World

What Is A Flattie?

A Flattie is a Paper Doll that represents a person. A Flattie goes where you might want to go, but cannot go in person. "A Flat you" can go on trips, visit Disney, go to the beach, take a Disney cruise... the fun begins when you make your flattie and then send it on its way!!!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This form should only be used if you have already donated to Give Kids The World through our special FirstGiving Page. If you have not yet donated, you can do it here. If you have just a general question, email us here.
