"The partnership between giggle and WWO is the result of our shared dedication to the well-being of children everywhere and of our shared determination to insure that every child has access to good medical care, education, food, and love. Ali Wing and the giggle team are helping us provide all this to children around the world. We have one mission and one vision and together, we can truly transform children's lives," said Dr. Jane Aronson, founder of Worldwide Orphans Foundation.
Ali Wing, giggle founder and CEO and author said, "We are honored to be partnering with Dr. Jane Aronson's Worldwide Orphans Foundation. She's the epitome of giggle families. Open to all creeds, combinations and situations, giggle and WWO are committed to making kids' lives better and families stronger. Coming from a family of nine, five of whom were adopted from four different cultures, I've always understood the importance of sharing what you have. And as the founder of giggle, I've known for a long time that if I really wanted to achieve my dreams, I'd have to find a way to connect our lucky giggle families to children throughout the world who weren't born with the same good fortune." Ali added, "WWO programs don't just provide children with food, healthcare, and supplies — they even offer mentors for one-on-one attention. Pairing volunteers from the local community with one or two children, five days a week, WWO gives kids the companionship they crave, as well as the individual stimulation they need for healthy development. WWO is our partner in reaching out to children around the world."
