His repertoire includes a prolific 12 Children’s Albums, countless energetically packed live shows for throngs of eager audiences across North America. He is the first children’s entertainer to headline at the Los Angeles Amphitheater, a four time recipient of the Parents’ Choice Award and a three time Juno award winner.
Edgardo Gonzales a former sponsored child, is living proof. Hear his personal story and learn how he is now giving back to help other children in need.
Join a team and play "Build it" – a simulation based on how World Vision comes alongside communities. You'll collaborate with fellow sponsors to set development priorities. And you'll encounter unforeseen events that affect your plans, like political unrest or drought.
During disasters, children need a place to just be children. World Vision creates Child Friendly Spaces, where they can play and learn. Let your children spend the evening in our "Child-Friendly Space" replica and enjoy games, crafts, toys and snacks.
