It takes a Village to raise the hopes and dreams of a child suffering from a life-threatening illness.

undefinedToo often, children with life-threatening illnesses are forced to lead very different lives. Thrust uncontrollably into extraordinary circumstances that can rob them of the joys, innocence and simplicity of childhood. In the lives of these courageous children, normalcy takes a very different form; many times lacking smiles, laughter, joy and hope. Give Kids The World (GKTW) changes all that. Though not a cure for their medical condition, the extraordinary work performed at The GKTW Village does the impossible. It allows these children to escape the harsh reality of their world. To visit Orlando and stay in a whimsical, 70-acre storybook resort with their family. To visit Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. To laugh out loud with newfound friends. Even to eat ice cream for breakfast. To simply experience the world, as they should—as a child. And when they return home, they take with them one of the most powerful forces on the planet – hope!

As corporate sponsor, we have joyfully and tearfully pledged our love and commitment to these amazing children, both through our volunteer efforts, as well as through long-term financial commitments to GKTW. It has been, without a doubt, one of the most important missions of our Davidson family. And we’ve all been blessed to experience the beauty of providing hope and faith into an otherwise dire situation.

As the highest-ranked charity in the nation, GKTW has now hosted over 120,000 children with life-threatening illnesses, and their families, providing a cost-free, weeklong stay at the Give Kids The World Village, including transportation, meals and tickets to Walt Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios. It also takes a Village of corporate sponsors, individual donors and volunteers to make it all happen—of which we are extremely honored to be a member.

    Pros

    I was with DHR for approximately 4 years and it will be an experience I will never forget and one of which I will always be deeply grateful. It was a true privilege and honor to work for this company/family; however, it will only be such to those who hold themselves highly accountable for the success of not only themselves but more importantly for the company. The support from corporate is outstanding and ultimately, you reap what you sow. Don't only work hard, Work Smart; come to work prepared and ready, not only to do your own job but also to learn the next job. There are no "favorites" and "inside clicks" as some may say, the company operates the same as any other successful organizations out in the world, they reward those individuals who come to work and contribute to the success of a company which has given you the opportunity to A. have a job and B. understand that your contributions also pay for the lively hood of those associates and employees around you. This is a great company to join and to work for and if you are willing to push the limits and happily accept the challenges to exceed expectations, it will be an experience to catalyze you to next level.

    Cons

    There are always some cons with any organization but none that affected me in a negative manner.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the opportunity. It was a true pleasure and privilege to work for a organization that puts forth the effort to train those individuals who want to be challenged and encouraged to surpass what was thought to be their limit. All the best and success to Davidson's future.
