Give Kids The World Village Founder Day and Donation from IAStage
InterAmerica Stage, Inc. donated and installed a large projection screen with rigging for Give Kids the World Village. It is located in their Park of Dreams on the Serendipity, an 80-foot-long ship stage.
Today is Founder’s Day for Give Kids the World Village, located in Kissimmee, Florida and founded by Henri Landwirth. He was a Belgian Holocaust Survivor who migrated to Orlando, Florida where he operated a hotel. After learning of the deaths of two small children who had wanted to visit Walt Disney World, yet could not reserve a hotel room in time before their passing, Landwirth passionately devised a facility in which travel arrangements would be made quickly. In this way, he hoped to grant wishes for children who wished to visit local theme parks and spend the precious time they had with loved ones.
Every year, the resort welcomes more than 7,000 families from 76 countries including the United States. The resort organization is designed with whimsical theming perfect for children. It also offers complementary meals, provided by donations and volunteers in the local area, complementary rental cars for families from Avis Rent-A-Car, and complementary tickets to local attractions including Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Orlando Resort, and more.
InterAmerica Stage, Inc. has donated to Give Kids the World Village previously, and is proud to be one of the continuing local companies who donate their time and resources to help keep this wonderful resort as magical and memorable as possible.
