The Sunshine Foundation was founded in 1976 with a lofty, yet admirable goal: to realize the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children. To help these children feel like kids again, the foundation built the Dream Village, an amazing theme park in Davenport, FL, where children and their families stay in fairytale themed cottages and enjoy a handicapped accessible playground and pool, as well as a mini-golf course. The Sunshine Foundation works to fulfill so many children’s dreams, including everything from celebrity meet-ups, to family trips to shopping sprees. To date, the foundation has answered more than 35,000 dreams.
Aside from a visit to the Dream Village, The Sunshine Foundation finds itself inundated with requests to visit Disney World here in Florida. That’s where the Dreamlifts program comes in. A few times per year, the Sunshine Foundation charters an aircraft to transport children to Orlando for the vacation of a lifetime. As a sponsor and Corporate Dream Maker of the Sunshine Foundation, Miami Air International proudly participates in the Dreamlifts program, and donates flight time to The Sunshine Foundation.
Our participation in the Dreamlifts program is something we are very proud at Miami Air International. To learn more about Dreamlifts, as well as other commitments to the environment and community visit our responsibility page.
