I wish that this would have all shown up, but I can't figure out how to get it to fit so that it all shows..
  What it is showing is that March 7th is Ice Cream for Breakfast Day in support of Give Kids the World, a village where kids stay witth their families while in Orlando for their wish trip.   Because Owen's trip was a rushed trip (we found out he had relapsed and were in Orlando the following week because the cancer had come back in numerous spots in his brain and spine so quickly), we did not stay at Give Kids the World, however, we did visit daily to eat, ride ponies, play miniature golf, etc.  
  For more information on Give Kids the World or to make a donation, please visit their website at
 Let's all show our support for children with terminal illnesses and eat ice cream for breakfast on March 7!!


Celebrate Founder's Day 
by having Ice Cream for Breakfast!

March 7th, 2009

All of us at Give Kids The World Village are getting ready for our Founder's Day celebration on March 7. Four years ago we started a tradition... encouraging everyone to "eat ice cream for breakfast" to help us celebrate. Whether you were a guest at the Village, share your time as a volunteer Angel, send Wish Children here as a Wish Granting Organization or are one of our treasured partners, you are a special part of our GKTW family. We hope that on March 7, you will start your day off with ice cream and thoughts of the thousands of precious children we have served.

Show us how you celebrate Ice Cream for Breakfast Day by sending us your photos. You may even see yourself on our website or our fan page on Facebook! Please send your photos

Our world-famous Ice Cream Palace is open from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., so that our Wish children can have ice cream for breakfast every day of the year!
