You know man I love your spirit and all but I kinda think that goal is a bit too high. More power to you if you can make it though!

When a family arrives in Orlando, they are welcomed at the airport by one of our volunteer greeters. Traveling for any family can be overwhelming, so you can imagine how tough it is with a child who may be fragile or who requires medical equipment. Orlando is a pretty hectic airport, so our greeters meet the family and escort them to baggage claim and then to their mode of ground transportation.

Most GKTW families get the use of a rental vehicle for the week and the kids LOVE being told by our partners at National Car Rental that they can pick ANY car in the lot they want—mustang, minivan, convertible, you name it—in any color. If the parents are not old enough to rent a car or just prefer not to drive, MEARS transportation shuttles them around for the week.

GKTW has arrivals and departures each day; today we have 14 families flying in to start the best week of their lives.

Very cool Kara, thanks for all the insight into how the facility works and what all of the money is going towards.

Adam, why would you tell someone their goal is too high!?!?!? The whole idea of a goal is to put something far away but in reach, I have full faith in all of our participants that they'll exceed their goals!
