What would motivate someone to donate their scarce and valuable vacation time to the service of strangers? What happens when we spend an hour or two volunteering to help make a child smile?
Over Thanksgiving Weekend, we set out to find the answers to these questions and were completely overwhelmed and inspired by what we discovered.
During this Season of Kindness, we are reminded that even the smallest acts of kindness can make an impact on the lives of others. If you were moved by the stories of Carmen and the Stilwells, here are a few ways to give back through the holiday season and beyond.
Did you know you can build volunteering into your vacation itinerary, just like the Stilwells? Volunteer Vacations are available year-round and provide an opportunity for you to spend time giving back as a family while traveling. If you are considering a trip to Universal Orlando Resort, be sure to check out all of the details.
Universal Orlando Community Partners
There are more than 20 Community Partners in the Central Florida area that could use your helping hands. To get started paying it forward, just like Carmen, just visit and select one of the organizations on the #UniversalMoments Giving page.
Whether preparing meals or painting faces, every act of kindness makes a difference. As the Stilwell’s daughter said…
“It’s a reminder that we can help people anywhere… and we should do that, we should help people everywhere we go.”
