MouseScrappers First Collab Kit to Benefit Give Kids the World! is thrilled to bring you a first... a collab kit that will benefit a very special place: Give Kids the World.

Give Kids The World Village (GKTW) is a 70-acre, nonprofit "storybook" resort, located near Central Florida's most beloved attractions, where children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are treated to week long, cost-free fantasy vacations. Their mission is to fulfill wishes of children as long as there is need - and to never turn a child away. GKTW works very closely with organizations like the Make-A-Wish Foundation to fulfill these wishes. Make-A-Wish qualifies the families and provides transportation to the Orlando area, and GKTW provides a week of accommodations, food and theme park tickets - all at no cost to the families. It is almost entirely staffed by friendly, loving volunteers (or "Angels", as they are called) who greet everyone with a warm smile. The facilities around the resort were designed with special needs in mind (e.g. a carousel that accommodates wheel chairs)... and pretty much all 'typical' household rules are thrown out the window. If a child wants ice cream for breakfast, they can have it! Anything to help them forget about doctor visits, hospitals, therapy, etc - if only for a week. Give Kids the World relies on donations - so MouseScrappers is proud to be able to do our part to help. 100% of the revenue generated from the sale of this kit will be donated to Give Kids the World. For more information on this wonderful place, please visit their website here.

MouseScrappers new kit, Wishes, Happiness and Hope, was inspired by the color and whimsy of this resort. It is jam-packed with 72 papers, a detailed template, 3 alphas, and over 200 elements!
