By partnering with Give Kids the World Village, Tourico Holidays is able to deepen its charitable roots with a cause that is local to its Orlando-area  headquarters.

“Tourico Holidays has been a long-time supporter of Give Kids the World, but we wanted to establish a deeper commitment to the charity by serving as a true partner,” said Uri Argov, CEO of Tourico Holidays.  “Being local to their operations means we are able to provide the hands-on assistance and additional business resources the organization may need.  We’re also happy to be serving some of the inspirational families that visit Give Kids the World Village – and give them a unique Orlando experience.”

As part of its commitment to Give Kids the World Village, Tourico Holidays has initiated a company-wide program that includes the automatic withdrawal for employee donations with a company match, “Work Week” volunteer windows, and a Volunteer of the Year award.

“The Give Kids The World vacation is about offering each wish child the opportunity to participate in as many exceptional experiences as possible during a weeklong dream escape,” mentions Mitch Goldberg, Director of Development for Give Kids the World. “The Give Kids The World vacation is about offering each wish child the opportunity to participate in as many exceptional experiences as possible during a weeklong dream escape,” states Pamela Landwirth, President of  Give Kids The World.  “As an international vacation provider involved in some of the most meaningful  vacations imaginable, Tourico Holidays is the perfect partner for Give Kids The World.  ”
