Blackbaud client, Give Kids The World Village, (GKTW) is a non-profit, storybook resort in Central Florida that provides unforgettable, cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. So far, GKTW has provided over 127,000 wishes and dreams, in the form of vacations and support to families and child with life-threatening illnesses.

GKTW is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year with an exciting new initiative – the Extreme Village Makeover. Ty Pennington, host of ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover, helped out with the remodel of the facilities as well as Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO) and Walt Disney World. With a cost of $60,000 per villa and 88 villas to complete, this was no simple task. This special two week effort was featured on ABC’s Good Morning America on this morning. Did you miss it?
