The Coaster101 Podcast, Episode 9: Chatting With Give Kids The World

If you’ve been following Coaster101 for any period of time, you know that we’re big supporters of Give Kids The World. If you’re somehow unaware of the organization, Give Kids The World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides week-long, cost-free vacations to children with critical illnesses and their families.

This week on the Coaster101 podcast, we’re joined by Give Kids The World’s President and CEO, Pamela Landwirth, and their Director of Development, Steven Amos. We learn about the history of the Village, some of their unique facilities and attractions, how the Village is currently operating while wishes are “on hold” due to the current global pandemic, and how people can support Give Kids The World by participating in one of their signature events for coaster enthusiasts: Coasting For Kids.

You can find The Coaster101 Podcast in all of your favorite podcast apps, or you can listen in the player above. Here are direct links to the episodes on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify. Also, it helps us out a ton if you subscribe wherever you listen, and if you give us a rating or review. So we’d greatly appreciate it, especially since it also let’s us know how we’re doing!
