Making Deams Come True

“Give Kids the World Village”—
A non-profit resort for children—
Children with life-threatening illnesses
And their families.

Volunteer angels—
The heart of the village.
Volunteer angels—
All ages, talents, and abilities.

Volunteer angels—
Filling roles including
gift givers, entertainers
Ice-cream scoopers, and characters.

Volunteer angels—
students, corporate professionals, retirees,
community groups, individuals, families—
Sharing time, talent, and hearts.
Volunteer angles—
bringing happiness and hope
into the lives of precious children
and their families.

The angels’ rewards—
A child’s smile, A hug,
A thank you,
And grateful families.

The angels change the lives of children,
Children with life-threatening illnesses
And their families.

A week ago I wrote a poem about child abuse.  Today I am happy to show the flip side.  Today's poem is about people giving their time to bring happiness to children.
