Even though his show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is no longer on the air, TV personality Ty Pennington continues to work to help people in need. He teamed up with a few of his friends, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, to renovate 90 vacation villas at Give Kids The World. The nonprofit resort provides trips to theme parks for kids with life-threatening illnesses and their families. 

A huge supporter of Give Kids The World, Disney employees have provided more than 40,000 hours of service, last year alone. Disney also provides in-kind ticket donations for the families.

The big reveal aired on ABC's Good Morning America and included appearances by host Josh Elliott and chef Emeril Lagasse. The show Emeril's Florida appears on the Cooking Channel, a sister station to HGTV.
