There's such a big difference between being dead and alive, I told myself, the greatest gift that anyone can give anyone else is life. And the greatest sin a person can do to another is to take away that life. Next to that, all the rules and religions in the world are secondary; mere words and beliefs that people choose to believe and kill and hate by. My life won't be lived that way, and neither, I hope, will my children's.

Henri Landwirth, founder of Give Kids The World, passed away at age 91. I never had the opportunity to personally meet Henri, but he's had a profound impact on my life. A Holocaust survivor, Henri emigrated to the US, and ultimately settled in Florida. After many years as a hotelier, his true calling was creating a resort where children with life-threatening illnesses could stay with their families during a cost-free vacation. Over the past 10 years, I've volunteered at the Village with my family as well as hundreds of college students. I truly believe that Give Kids The World is the happiest place on earth. Henri Landwirth lost his own childhood due to hate, but he has given over 160,000 children their childhood back with hope and love. Henri Landwirth will always be an inspiration to me. My sincerest sympathies and condolences to Henri Landwirth's family and friends. His spirit will certainly live on forever at Give Kids The World โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข @GKTWVillage #GKTWVillage #GKTWU #AlternativeBreak #SpringBreak #FamilyTravel #Travel #travelwithkids #TravelBlogger @ExperienceKissimmee #MyKissimmee #Kissimmee @VisitFlorida #VisitFlorida #LoveFL #Florida

Years ago, I was lucky enough to lead my churchโ€™s youth group in an alternative break. We got to help victims in Kansas whos homes were torn apart by tornadoes. I am proud to have had the opportunity and would absolutely do it again. #springbreak #alternativebreak #lessmoneyspentthanmexico

This #TBT we're featuring our #AlternativeBreak trip that traveled over spring break to Kabale, Uganda where they volunteered with a community outreach health clinic serving health needs like Family Planning, Dental Health, Cervical Cancer screenings, and Disease Quick-Testing. After a day working in the clinic, the children of the community welcomed the WCU team with shared songs and dances! #ramserve #makeyourbreak
Last month, I spent a couple of weeks in the Philippines alone. All of my friends left after the amazing 10 day grad trip. I must admit, I teared up at the airport when they bid their goodbyes to me. There I was, alone, waiting, wondering if I made a mistake, would I survive, let alone thrive? - even contemplated booking return tickets back home despite the exorbitant money it would cost me. But Iโ€™m glad I stuck to the plan. Those two weeks were simply special. I volunteered with an NGO in philippines wherein I taught kindergarten kids. I lived, loved and laughed with them. I made some wonderful new friends from many different countries. Iโ€™ve always loved solitude, but this time I enjoyed it with a real sense of freedom. A solo trip. The concept of it was unimaginable in the beginning. And my parents? It took a hell lot of persuading, reassuring, begging and pleading, but they finally gave in to the stupid desires of their crazy little daughter. Actually, they didnโ€™t quite have a choice. And I couldnโ€™t be more grateful because those experiences will stay with me for life. So here are a few pictures to capture my two week adventure. Thanks @ivhq for giving me this beautiful experience! I canโ€™t stop propagating the concept to everyone I know! #IVHQPhilippines #Volunteering #AlternativeBreak
