Annual Fundraiser

When a child is diagnosed with a critical illness, a family’s world turns upside down. Schedules become dominated by hospital visits and medical treatments. Free time slips away. But Give Kids The World Village gives some of that time back.

This year we have teamed up with Give Kids The World Village, an 84-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with critical illnesses and their families.  Donate today or create your own team to help ISPA reach its fundraising goal.
