Recently, the Be Our Guest Podcast hosted a 12-hour live show benefiting Give Kids The World. This podcast (a digital screening of online radio) invited listeners to learn about GKTW, compete for special prizes and donate to the Village. Special guests, including GKTW President Pam Landwirth, took the mic to share their personal stories about the Village.
The Be Our Guest Podcast (BOGP) is available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and focuses on past and future trips to Walt Disney World. With the help of trip reports, listener insight and an esteemed panel, BOGP helps families plan for the best vacation possible to the most popular vacation destination in the world.
The podcast family began this creative fundraiser four years ago, and have raised over $14,000 for the Village. Thanks to their continued efforts and the generosity of the listeners, the 2013 Podcast was another success! Team BOGP was proud to report that this year’s podcast resulted in over $9,000.
“Give Kids The World is such a wonderful resort and we are lucky enough to get the opportunity to support their efforts,” said Rikki Niblet, Co-Host of BOGP. “We are blessed with an amazing family of listeners, who each year, continuously surprise us with their generosity. We cannot thank them enough, from the bottom of our hearts. It is truly amazing what a little love and pixie dust can do. We look forward to what next year (our 5th annual event) will bring!”
Give Kids The World is honored to be a part of the podcast family and thanks BOGP for their years of hard work. Their program has helped spread the message of GKTW with a wide community and assists the Village in continuing its mission.
