Give Kids the World

Make a difference in the lives of critically ill children and their families

Since 1986, Give Kids the World Village has made it possible for nearly 155,000 brave children and families coping with life-threatening illness to enjoy a whimsical village unlike any other place on earth. Because of Give Kids the World (GKTW), these families can enjoy a worry-free, cost-free vacation. They stay in fully furnished villas with meals, transportation, and tickets to Central Florida's theme parks and attractions.

Let's show them we care.
AAOE has chosen GKTW as our charity for ongoing support. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of the 2018 Annual Conference. We need your help! We're challenging you and asking:
  • AAOE members to raise $10,000 and
  • Exhibiting companies to raise $10,000
What can you do?
Visit and start a fundraising team of your own, join an existing team, or participate individually.
  • Set a goal amount to meet by April 17.
  • Create a friendly office competition and rally your personal network.
  • Create a personal or team page.
  • Send a link to colleagues, coworkers, family, and friends.
  • You don't have to be an AAOE member to participate.
  • Attendees who donates $25 or more will be able to claim a GKTW shirt onsite to wear on Sunday for Give Kids the World Day. You can donate online or through the conference registration form.
