The story of Give Kids The World begins with a little girl named Amy, a wish, and the desire of one man to make that wish come true.

Amy had leukemia and a wish to visit Orlando’s theme parks. To facilitate this wish, a respected hotelier was asked to provide a complimentary stay for Amy and her family. 

Although the hotelier gladly obliged, the remainder of Amy's travel plans took too long to arrange, and her wish was never granted. Time simply ran out, and Amy had passed away.

This unfulfilled wish inspired the hotelier to make a vow that no child in need would ever be failed again. That man was Henri Landwirth, and his desire to ensure that Amy's story would never repeat itself is a mission Give Kids The World has fulfilled since 1986. Henri Landwirth, is a Belgian Holocaust survivor who spent 5 years in the Auschwitz and Matthausen concentration camps. Landwirth immigrated to the United States with $20 in his pocket and little knowledge of the English language. He served in the army and used his GI benefits to learn hotel management.

Henri Landwirth has devoted himself to improving the lives of those in need through numerous foundations and non-profit organizations he has founded. The Fanny Landwirth Foundation, named for his mother, was created in 1982 to help ensure that the pain and agony of the innocent victims of the Holocaust is never forgotten. Through The Fanny Landwirth Foundation, he has built a senior citizen center and a children’s school in Orlando and created a scholarship program for underprivileged children in Israel.

The Mercury Seven Foundation, now known as the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, provides scholarships to promising young science students. In 2000, Henri founded Dignity U Wear, an organization that provides hope to children and their families who are homeless, abused, abandoned or neglected by providing them with new clothing. Today this organization supports shelters in nine states.
