Extreme Makeover For Give Kids The World Village

Filed under: Give Kids The World,Orlando Charity Events |

It will take 4,000 gallons of paint, 3,000 electrical outlets and light switches, and 100,000 sq. ft. of flooring material, and that’s only the start of what will be needed for the Give Kids The World (GKTW) “Extreme Village Makeover” which began in the early hours this morning and will run through January 25, 2014.

For the first time in 25 years, nearly 100 of the Village’s 140 villas will be fully refurbished with new appliances, floors, countertops and other upgrades. Led by Wyndham Vacation Ownership, Give Kids the World is temporary closing down its village while the renovation takes place. The villas will receive new electrical wiring, new plumbing, new appliances, new countertops, new carpeting, new roofing and a fresh coat of paint.

“Our plan was to gradually renovate our villas over several years, so when our friends at Wyndham offered to help us complete the remaining one hundred villas over a two week period, I was in disbelief,” Pam Landwirth, GKTW president said. “Wyndham rallied their internal team and enlisted the support of countless others to make the dream a reality. The Extreme Village Makeover project will make a huge difference in the lives of the precious children we serve, ensuring that they and their families have a beautiful home away from home at the Village.”

“We are honored to support Give Kids The World and the great work they do for these wonderful children and their families who benefit so much from their stays at the Village,” said Sarah King, executive vice president of human resources for Wyndham Vacation ownership. “We are proud to be a part of the Extreme Village Makeover and thank every partner, contractor, supplier, contributor, volunteer and everyone who is making this wonderful two-week project a reality.”

The village’s office building will also see a redesign and renovation. This will be led by the Walt Disney Company, ABC and the crew of ABC’s Extreme Makeover television program. The building, one of the fist to be built on the property, will be transformed into a Memory Makers building and will include volunteer services, a chapel, a gift shop and a place for families to be able to record their thoughts and experiences about their week at the village.

The project will conclude on the 24th January when members of ABC’s Good Morning America will be at Give Kids The World. Ty Pennington, the host of ABC’s Extreme Makeover, will then reveal the finished Memory Makers building on national television.
