When I went to college at Valencia Community College I did some volunteer work at Give Kids The World Village. It was a humbling experience and when I saw that were working with Breyers Ice Cream on a new initiative I had to share it with you. It’s called the Global Ice Cream for Breakfast Contest and it will take place from July 13-15. During that weekend individuals, families and corporations around the world are encouraged to host ice cream socials for the chance to win an all-expense paid volunteer vacation to the GKTW Village – a nonprofit “storybook” resort in Central Florida dedicated to making wishes come true for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
“For over 20 years, Give Kids The World has served up smiles and memories in the Village’s Ice Cream Palace with all-you-can-eat ice cream all day, every day. Wish children and their families enjoy unlimited cones, sundaes and shakes, with a buffet of topping options whenever they want —even for breakfast!,” said Give Kids The World President Pamela Landwirth. “For the third year in a row, this campaign brings that joy to the entire world, and ensures that we can keep making magical memories for our wish children and families.”
How to Enter
To enter the contest, Ice Cream For Breakfast hosts must hold their social on July 13, 14 or 15, and raise a minimum of $150 in donations. All socials must be registered on www.icecreamforbreakfast.org and hosts must share a picture from their social on GKTW’s Facebook or Flickr sites before midnight on August 30, 2012. One lucky winner will receive roundtrip airfare for two to Orlando, a two-night hotel stay near the GKTW Village, a weekend car rental, and the opportunity to create magical memories for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families as a volunteer in the Village’s Ice Cream Palace.
