Local6 News was very good to Give Kids The World at its 20th Anniversary celebration yesterday. Not only was a full half-hour devoted to the event, including a live special broadcast from the GKTW Village, but there were stories and interviews throughout the day. They also picked up this story from the Associated Press.
Hussein bounced her way through a giant game of Candy Land and spied
the world’s largest gingerbread man Tuesday, along with dozens of other
children with life-threatening illnesses, in celebration of the 20th
anniversary of Give Kids The World Village.
Wish you all could have been there. The world’s largest Gingerbread Man was debuted (along with a new Walk-Around Gingerbread Man Character) and the World’s Largest Game of Candyland was played too.
John Stamos, a longtime friend of GKTW, was present, which was a big highlight for the families. Many hugs were given and pictures taken. But, as the AP story says, the star of the show was GKTW founder Henri Landwirth. A truly generous man and an example for all others if there ever was one.
As more comes online, I promise to link to it.
