gktwlogoGive Kids The World Village announced that Max King Realty and HeavenOfficeCondos.com has donated one of the largest fiber optic displays in the world for use at its 70-acre village in Central Florida. GKTW provides cost-free vacations for children with life- threatening illnesses and their families at the resort.

“The 40′ x 28′ globe of the world was originally part of the giant AT&T billboard on the Marriot Marquis Hotel in New York City’s Times Square,” stated Brett Kingstone, President of Max King Realty and HeavenOfficeCondos.com of Orlando, Florida. “Fiber optic points of light outlined the continents, while hundreds of fiber optics illuminated the cities worldwide, which will now signify the hundreds of cities around the world that have sent their thousands of special children to GKTW. I believe that all the children that visit will enjoy it for many years to come.”

The globe will be the centerpiece of a major expansion effort at the Village. The phased property expansion project of Give Kids The World Village will nearly double its capacity of family villas from 102 to 196. This is a significant step towards achieving its mission to accommodate all children with life-threatening illnesses, whose one wish is to visit Central Florida’s attractions.
