Pam Landwirth, President of Give Kids The World, Tells about the phenomenal work her organization does to help give extremely ill children and their families a chance to experience joy, magic, and happiness. No family is ever turned away from this completely free experience. There aren’t enough words to describe how wonderful this program is for these children and their families. Pam says at Give Kids The World, they follow a simple motto of “happiness inspires hope”. This organization was founded by Pam’s husband Henry Landwirth, a holocaust survivor, whose lack of a childhood has truly motivated him to make sure these kids get the most out of the week they spend at Give Kids The World. For example, every Thursday is Christmas year round, simply because this might be the last Christmas these children get to experience. Similarly, every Monday is Halloween. Started in 1986, this magical program has served over 122,00 families around the world, with the help of 1,400 volunteers a week. A large part of their facility will be on Extreme Makeover with Ty Pennington and the results aired on Good Morning America on January 24, 2014 (picture courtesy of gma.yahoo)
