Worlds of Fun is proud to announce its new charitable giving program, Worlds of Love. Through this new initiative, park ambassadors and guests will unite to spread happiness, fun and love to deserving children in the Kansas City area. Children’s Mercy Hospital will serve as the Worlds of Love’s first primary sponsor.

Worlds of Love Mission Statement:

Worlds of Love is dedicated to bringing happiness and opportunity to the youth of Kansas City. Together, we strive to make an impact in the Kansas City community by spreading the love that has a lasting impact on the families we serve and the memories we help create.

Worlds of Love

Worlds of Fun has a long history of giving back to the Heartland, and they are hoping Worlds of Love will help extend their reach locally and make more of a strategic impact. These focused efforts will include ticket donations, fundraising, special events, ambassador participation and character appearances. As a result, the park will no longer accept ticket donation requests through the Kids First charity ticket program.
