Give Kids The World has many friends and supporters that are near and dear to our heart. Blogger Kelly Green, aka SeaWorld Mommy, is one of those valued supporters. A friend to the Village for years, Kelly helped organize last year’s inaugural Blogger Bash and is a co-chair of this year’s event scheduled for August 30. Below you will find details on our latest project together – Give Kids The World Awareness Angels.

What does it mean to be an Awareness Angel?

Give Kids The World Village is a storybook resort that hosts children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Most people hear about the Village when a friend or loved one needs their support or has been a guest. Sadly, there are folks who have never heard of GKTW. That’s where “Awareness Angels” step in.

Websites and blog pages with the Awareness Angels banner represent numerous supporters who have visited the Village or help spread the word across cyber-space about the myriad of services that Give Kids The World provides. Awareness Angels encourage others to take part in GKTW activities and work hard to  promote, share and increase awareness for GKTW through social media and online outlets. Some live too far away to volunteer in person, so they volunteer “virtually” by publicizing volunteer opportunities. Others do a little of each: volunteering in person while urging others to join in. No matter how they participate, Awareness Angels are champions for Give Kids The World and are some of our strongest supporters in the online community.

If you see an Awareness Angels banner on your favorite website, look up their posts on involvement, follow their social media channels and feel free to give a shout out for their participation in this worthwhile endeavor. And, of course, join in! For more information on our Awareness Angels program, please click here.

She hopes you will be inspired to see this great big blue world of ours with a heart full of compassion and feet ready to leap into action. Thank you, Kelly, for your generous support and for continuing to share our mission. For more information on the 2014 Blogger Bash Presented by Mom It Forward, visit www.gktw.org/bloggerbash.
