Rupert Grint Supports Give Kids The World!

RupertNewsIconRupert Grint Supports Give Kids The World!February 8th, 2016, 3:34 pm– A lovely bit of news has emerged online today – apparently Rupert Grint stopped by a very special place while he was in Florida when he visited the charity Give Kids The World and their amazing village.
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.

Rupert had this to say about this great honour:

It was a great pleasure to help Starlight grant Callum’s wish before Christmas and I really look forward to doing more to support this wonderful charity. I have seen first hand just how much of an impact a Starlight Wish can have on a seriously ill child – it really makes a huge difference to them and their family – so I am delighted to become a Starlight Ambassador

Neil Swan, Chief Executive of Starlight Children’s Foundation, had this to say about Rupert becoming an ambassador:

We are thrilled to welcome Rupert on board as an Ambassador. With his experience of Starlight’s work, popularity with young children and families, great sense of fun and charm, Rupert is perfect for Starlight and we are very excited about working with him.

Today, he spent the day at Downing Street where Chancellor George Osborne hosted a Christmas party for the Starlight children’s charity.
40 seriously and terminally ill children and their families were invited to this very special event and it looks like Rupert had just as much fun as those precious kids.

At a time when it may feel like there is little to look forward to, Starlight is there to grant a seriously or terminally ill child their greatest wish, restoring the magic and fun of childhood and creating happy memories for the whole family to share and cherish, whatever the future holds.

UPDATE #2: We have just uploaded some more pictures from this Christmassy day here, but we especially wanted to share a quote from Rupert about the lovely event:

This has been a very special day. It was a huge pleasure to attend Starlight and No 11 Downing Street’s Children’s Christmas Party and to get to meet Callum, who is a very brave young man with a seriously impressive knowledge of Harry Potter! He has clearly been through a huge amount but, amazingly, he has kept smiling. I think he is an inspiration. Hopefully being given his very own broom and chocolate wand has meant he’s had a truly wizard day. He certainly deserves it!
