for Give Kids The World

Are you wishing you could be at Walt Disney World? Now that summer is over are you longing for a vacation? Well now you can go on a virtual vacation to Walt Disney World. You can take a Flattie vacation that benefits 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!!!

Here's How It Works:

More Information About Give Kids The World

Once there was a little girl named Amy. Amy had leukemia and one Wish - to visit the world famous theme parks and attractions of Orlando, Florida. Henri Landwirth owned an Orlando hotel and offered free lodging to fulfill Amy's Wish. Unfortunately, Amy's reservation was cancelled. The rest of her travel plans took too long to arrange - her Wish was never granted. Amy passed away. Time simply ran out.

Henri Landwirth understood the importance of youth and the importance of time. Henri lost his youth spending time in an Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. Henri vowed no child would lose their last wish again - Give Kids The World was born. Give Kids The World is a non-profit resort that provides a memorable, magical, weeklong cost-free vacation to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Through the generous support of individuals and corporations, Give Kids The World can bring families with special needs to Central Florida within 24 hours.
