Central Florida’s tourists take many memories away from their vacations to enjoy the area’s theme parks and attractions. But none are as impactful and life-changing as those taken from the guests at Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit resort that welcomes children with life-threatening illnesses and their families on their wish trips. Unlimited ice cream all day is certainly a memory that stays with them long after they go home.
