Disney Fans: how would you like to make a difference for a child facing the challenge of life-threatening illness? The power is yours to do just that through fundraising efforts for Give Kids the World.
Give Kids the World is a wonderful non-profit organization whose mission is to give children facing life-threatening illness, along with their families, the trip of a lifetime to Central Florida, where they can enjoy the attractions of Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, and Universal at no cost. The opportunity to give children “a week of yes” to whatever they want, and to make joyful memories, is the only reason Give Kids the World exists. To date, 100,000 children have visited Central Florida, and have stayed at Give Kids the World Village to take in the magic that the area offers.
Wonderful organization, right? So I’m sure that you’re asking: how can I become involved?
In an effort to lend a hand and raise money for Give Kids the World, a group of Disney fans have created The Power of 10. The idea is simple: 10,000 people commit to asking 10 of their friends to donate $10 to Give Kids the World, and by doing so, we raise $1 million for this worthy cause. The idea is to inspire people to raise money in different, creative ways within their own communities.
So, how can you help?
Well, there are a couple of different ways. First, become part of The Power of 10. It’s easy! Go to Powerof10.us, and sign up to help out or learn how to donate on the left side of the page. You can also “like” the Power of 10 Challenge on Facebook for news and updates.
If a fundraising event is more your style, then you’re in luck, because The Power of 10 will be hosting its “The Power of 10 Confronts the Dark Side” fundraising breakfast on Sunday, May 22. From 6:30-9:30 a.m., enjoy a wide array of breakfast items, including juice, eggs, sausage and bacon, breakfast quesadillas, potatoes, fresh fruit and yogurt, fresh breakfast pastries, and coffee and tea. In addition, we hear that C-P30 himself, Anthony Daniels, will be making an appearance! The breakfast will be held at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, at the Backlot Express Restaurant adjacent to Star Tours, before the Park opens.
The price for the breakfast will be $50 for adults (age 10 and older) and $25 for children ages 3-9. All proceeds for the breakfast cover the cost of the event, as well as providing a donation to Give Kids the World.
In addition to great camaraderie with fellow Disney fans, there will also be a silent auction of Star Wars memorabilia and other goodies for attendees to bid on.
