This is a 79-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families and it looks like Rupert had an absolutely lovely time with the kids.
Give Kids The World had this to say about Rupert’s visit:
Even Rupert Grint – best known for his role as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter – knew that in order to understand the magic of Give Kids The World Village, he’d have to see it for himself. As an ambassador for Starlight Children’s Foundation, it already meant so much to him knowing that children with life-threatening illnesses were coming to the Village and experiencing The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Universal Orlando Resort). And so, he stopped by. He saw the smiles, the laughter, the piles of ice cream and the beauty of families enjoying much-needed time with one another.
On behalf of all who believe in magic and the happiness that inspires hope, we thank Rupert for sharing his big heart with the Village and its special guests.
