Give Kids the World Village (GKTW) has been selected as AAOE’s charity for ongoing support. This is an amazing cause to support leading up to, and during, the Annual Conference.

New this year is the option to create a fundraising team. This is a fun way to engage in friendly competition while involving friends, family, and coworkers. Non-AAOE members are invited to participate as team members or provide donations, so spread the word to your family members and friends!

The team, individual, and exhibiting company who raises the most money in their respective categories will be recognized at the end of the Closing General Session of the Annual Conference on Tuesday, April 17. Additionally, AAOE members who donates $25 or more who is attending the conference will receive a GKTW shirt to wear on the Sunday of the conference for Give Kids the World Day.

In honor of Giving Tuesday on November 28, a global day dedicated to giving back, we wanted to share some resources to help you get your team started and share the GKTW message!
